Use the collective brain to innovate

Many companies struggle with Digital Transformation (DT). A critical element of DT is innovation. You may think that doesn’t sound easy to do in my company. It is super simple, as the CEO of Google explained in an article by Nick Hobson last week in the online paper Inc. The numbers of Alfabet (including Google) went slightly down, Google’s productivity is not as per its headcount. To understand why this was the case, the CEO asked all his employees to answer a short survey with three questions:

  1. What would help you work with greater clarity and efficiency to serve our users and customers? 
  2. Where should we remove speed bumps to get better results faster?
  3. How do we eliminate waste and stay entrepreneurial and focused as we grow? 

It is essential to know that innovation does not grow in isolation; bring in all the brains to raise your company’s performance. Simple but genius! The name for this idea? The Simplicity Sprint.
