About the Silicon Valley Innovation Institute
New Solutions to New Problems
The Silicon Valley Innovation Institute addresses a situation that has never existed before. Innovation is emerging as a goal and commitment of many new competitors inour ‘flattened’ world. More rapid adaptation is now essential for all growth-oriented businesses to sustain themselves. The Global Value Chain has become a business tsunami that will sweep away all enterprises that are not prepared to embrace, and even welcome change.
The only viable, sustainable response is improving the ability to manage innovation. SVII defines innovation as sustainable, wealth-generating creation. This is not the same as increasing creativity. Paradoxically, creativity can quickly drain an organization if it is not managed to generate value. There is no shortage of new ideas: there is a shortage of innovation-driven executives able to harvest them.
SVII promulgates a specific solution to this dilemma ... a commitment ot managing innovation as a core competency.
