We need an entirely new approach to innovation that’s fit for a post-COVID world. A lot of people assume innovation is about looking for the next big ambitious idea that can disrupt an entire category. It can be, but with 90% of breakthrough innovation failing we’re wondering whether now is the time to refocus our ambition on innovation driven by the Power of Small.
Small is what counts when it comes to people making purchase decisions. Like the cupholders in cars. The KitKat “snap”. The lime in a Corona. Like nearly everything Apple has done to AirPods.
The kind of projects that lead to the 1% change that then becomes the difference between being a champion and just making up the numbers. Smaller, more affordable ventures that humanise categories rather than turning them upside down. Endeavours which aren’t trying to change the world necessarily, but try to make it a slightly nicer place.
