A few weeks back, I asked you for your Innovation Questions. Innovation Questions. Thanks to everyone who contributed a question, and please continue to do so. The goal with my responses will be to suggest a tool, process or principle that could help you build a systemic solution. Below is a question from Greg Allen about getting more people involved in his innovation initiative and a response from a non-Guru.
“How do I get my manufacturing team more involved? The office folks are starting to make the transition, but the team who is out on the floor getting their hands dirty building our products do not seem to understand that their insight and input is gold for our innovation process.” - Greg Allen
Hello Greg, thanks for asking this question. I can tell you are already heading in the right direction by seeking information on how to include your manufacturing team and leverage their invaluable insight.
