Download White Paper: "The World is Functionally Flat" - Gaining Leverage for Breakthrough Innovation
Research shows that cognitive distance between innovation partners is a driver of breakthrough innovation. Yet despite years of experimentation with open innovation, cross-discipline migration remains exceptionally difficult. Functional thinking represents a powerful new lingua franca that makes boundary crossing more effective and efficient for R&D and innovation teams.
This paper answers questions like:
- What role does innovation play in accelerating revenue growth?
- Why is R&D productivity so difficult today?
- Doesn't open innovation help exploit global knowledge?
- What does functional thinking mean and how can it really drive breakthrough innovations?
