Why Read This Report

Companies strive to innovate, but their attempts often fizzle. Two root causes of this failure are: 1) a lack of organizational buy-in for the innovation function and 2) a company culture that puts too much of the risk on the shoulders of individual employees. This report lays out best practices we uncovered by interviewing companies that have refined their approach to innovation, so customer experience (CX) pros and their colleagues can apply these lessons to ideate, incubate, and launch winning innovations.
