Structuring for Innovation: Setting up your organisation for more systematic innovation

Structures to support innovation vary depending on the strategic intent and ambition of an organisation. Setting up your organisation for more systematic innovation is a journey. As organisations evolve from centralised to decentralised structures for innovation, they may outsource some activities to support their transformation. More mature innovative organisations have distributed responsibilities for innovation. At an extreme, an organisation may spin off start-ups to enable their innovations to operate outside of organisational constraints.

It is important for organisations to be conscious of their innovation approach and the models that can be employed to be more strategic and systemic innovators over time. This infographic identifies the structures to develop systematic innovation. We recommend mapping out your journey to more systemic innovation and how it will evolve over time.
