  26. 26. Disrupting Innovation Disrupting how you innovate (you might be doing it wrong) Every organisation innovates, but although ideas may come from customer feedback or listening to employees, most innovation comes from the senior team. You won’t disrupt this way! platform networks Open Innovation platforms source ideas and solutions from the public – normally in return for a prize consultancy Others hire a consultant, R&D or creative agency who might then form a network of people to develop ideas, but of course innovation about the execution so if this is a problem then innovation will remain a problem Ideas Management Ideas are sourced from staff (and increasingly customers). The organisation then decides which to keep and progress and which to store or discard networks platform ? This model brings networks of innovators but inside the organisation
