Key takeaways

Just having an idea is not enough. You need executives that can support you and lean on the idea to encourage the change.

In a decentralized innovation model, innovation is everyone's job.

Limitations led the teams to be more innovative in finding solutions that led to their final product.

Communication and positive reinforcement are critical for the engagement of people after the launching of the idea.

Don't let your fear put out your idea. Continue to create despite setbacks.

Change and innovation culture does not have to start from top-down. Each individual can embody the change they want to see, with the right mindset.

"Yes and" concept is a powerful tool to create an innovative environment in your organization.
