Over at Innovator Inside, I've written today about the reasons practically all innovation programmes fail, and argued that we need to devolve the whole innovation problem to the edge, not just idea capture. Hope you find it interesting reading.
ehhh??? the king of telling us all how its done is throwing in the towel and saying innovation programmes don't work???
I think the stress of trying to do a real job in public sector has got you all mixed up James.
I suggest a week or two without self publication and a little time in front of the mirror is in order - your loosing it man!!

Thank you for your comment, however cross you must have been when
you wrote it.
The point I was trying to make is that we if want to increase the
success of innovation programmes, we have to let more people be part
of innovation programmes. Perhaps I didn't express myself clearly.
Anyway, I'm hardly throwing in the towel. I'm working with an
innovation management company trying to make that innovators are
succesful everywhere - including government. I think it is useful
You seem to be angry with me about something. I'd like to have a
chat with you about it if you're interested. If I've done something
specific to offend you, at least I'd be able to apologise.

It doesn't sound like he's cross, it sounds like he thinks your blogging about why large innovation programmes fail etc when you've failed yourself within the DWP ! Stakeholder management, buy-in, support, culture, mentality are all things you need to consider on any project, especially Innovation ones.
And, working for an Innovation Product\Consultancy company is quite different from running an Innovation Programme in a Public Sector company - the latter being a real test of innovative talent

Well the only thing to that is they should take it for granted upon introducing it to many. Many said that it does not actually work out. Or simply let just say that if it does work out,Hopefully they instruct that on process o how it truly works.

Innovation programmes take a _long_ time to work. Innovation must be come embedded in the company culture - it takes more than a couple of seminars to achieve this.
