The innovation requires commitment of the organization. The innovation comes from the change in the organization because perusing the innovative goals mean to adopt the change effectively and efficiently. There are several of the practices which can make the innovation smooth and effective. The main thing is that innovation should be effective and efficient. The leaders who manages the innovation and implement the innovative ways have some significant skills which makes them and organization successful in running the business (Kim & Min, 2015).
These skills involve the risk management and managing risk is not easy to handle for everyone that is why leaders are chosen people. Risk involves trying new ways, taking initiative which are differ from old ways. Every risk contains equal success and loss but predicting the possible outcome which should be accurate is the effective approach. New ideas comes from practices which have been conducted in the organization and those practices should be replaced by new ones so that it can help organization to secure the position in the market and survive accordingly. As in assessment one Starbucks is the example of initiating and they provided the innovative ways by offering products and services. The other best practice for innovation is to demonstrate the curiosity. Leader always look for something new and always strive to learn more. There are always things which lies beyond and only best practice of innovation let the leader go beyond those limits. This practice needs consistent evaluation of current knowledge so that the gap can be found out (Donate & de Pablo, 2015).
Along with these practices, organization needs to have strategic implementation and good leaders which are core to innovation. The best practices of leadership also help in innovation such as transformational and transactional leadership which involves the employees, values them and support them with benefits. The skills of leaders can be from discovery skills practice where organization made association and networking which help in striving the innovation opportunities.
Models of innovation:
When it comes to innovation every organization must emphasize on the innovation which leads to continue growth. In the long term, every organization seek for best practices according to the current market situation. The reasonable return to stakeholders and consistency in return should be the priority and this can only achieved through continuous innovation. Selecting right innovation model is the core to success of any organization working to strive best practices. An effective innovation model involves the best conceptual framework and provides the mindset of the innovation from leaders to all team members. It will provide the skill to identifying the new sources of knowledge to innovation. Helps in continuous growth and save the resources of the organization. The best model also possess the sustainability and competitive practices which enables the growth for long term (Spieth, Schneckenberg & Ricart, 2014).
Design Thinking or the change model you chose to consider in Assessment 4:
Design thinking considered to be the most effective approach for perusing the innovation. This approach uses the human centric ways by brainstorming methods which gives the ideas and those ideas turns into prototype for observing and testing those methods. There are five stages which are the most significant ways of empowering the leaders to use Design thinking method so that the problems could be solved efficiently and promote innovation. Not necessarily the design thinking only used for the organizations but also the countries use this approach for developing policies and implementing effective ideas. Design thinking helps in success of innovative idea and consist all the practices which can help from idea to execution process. The quiz regarding the leadership style of innovator and executor suggests that both the skills should be possessed by the leader so that they can be used when needed. The cultural change can be secured by involvement of individuals. Providing respect to employee diversity have always helped in the motivation and involvement of the employee and once the involvement is achieved the culture can be change through the confidence of the employees. It will help and guide the leader to initiate and implement the innovation related to the relevant organization.
