Peter joins me today to discuss various innovation topics. He reveals the five i's of innovation as well as their applications in the business world. He highlights how innovation has changed over the past 15 to 20 years and explains why many companies have lost the gating part of the Stage-Gate process. Peter shares when Agile and Stage-Gate are appropriate and why Waterfall is not Stage-Gate. He identifies the most significant risks to projects. Peter also argues why choosing a methodology or system is less important than doing them right and following the rules.
"Do not spread your resources and energies on too many things. Focus on the best things, get them through your system fast, and get to market fast." - Peter Fürst
