Innovating in Times of Uncertainty

Richard Sear

Partner, SVP and Chief Solutions Officer

While the title of this article suggests that uncertainty is not a constant, it actually is. But to truly understand the role of innovation, we must first acknowledge that some moments are more uncertain than others: 2020 has clearly demonstrated that reality.

So what is the role of innovation today? How do weremain focused on innovation when times are tough? Should you even try? To tackle these questions, the last one must be addressed first.

Should innovation even be a priority now?

It is incredibly hard to grow, even during good times. Companies struggle with new product success, illustrated by a 95% fail rate. Lack of growth is the No. 1 reason why CEOs are dismissed. Innovation is at the tip of the spear if we consider growth to be a serious and hopefully obvious goal of any company. Innovative employees are a corporation’s equivalent of Navy Seals: precision experts with a mission target and a clear plan for how to execute that mission. Tough times arethe perfect catalyst when innovation must be accelerated, given that competitors both known and unknown may be taking their proverbial foot off the gas pedal. During every major economic downturn, Nike doubled down on its R&D investment with great success, strengthening the business and shoring up core markets. The company recognized a growth opportunity and acted, using its innovation culture as the mechanism to move swiftly.
