Barriers

Successful innovation is always problem-focused. And the most powerful solutions emerge when problems are clearly defined.

Even the most experienced management innovators bump into roadblocks that frustrate their progress. The way forward is to identify these barriers, break them down into solvable chunks, and focus on the high-value areas.

Here you can browse through the problems others are encountering — whether they're political squabbles, capability gaps, or resource constraints — and propose solutions. And, of course, you can bring your own barriers to the conversation. You might find that others have wrestled with the same issues and come out on top.
