Some great references: buy a copy of Gary Hamel's book, the Art of Management, or see the Reader's Guide here at http://discussionleader.hbsp.com/hamel/excerpts/ to see the requirements for Innovation synthesised in one spot. The discussion questions are thought provoking, or maybe it's just stating the obvious? Have a read and let me know what you think.
I'll upload my preliminary analysis onto the Wiki, after the Innovation workshop tomorrow: see http://conference-board.org for more details. The Grow and Innovation pre-conference workshop sounds very practical: Making Innovation Work, tomorrow afternoon at the Financial Center Marriott.
