More Than a Product: Innovation for a New Era

Evolving Products to Platforms in a Changing World

Conclusion: Innovation Never Ends

Innovation spawns more innovation. Every innovation, whether it comes in the form of a new product or the total reimagining of what a product can be, points to previously unimagined possibilities for connecting, improving, and transforming the world. And every innovative approach to product design and development informs previously unforeseen solutions to seemingly intractable problems.

Innovation Never Ends

The conditions that drive product innovation are dynamic, and market conditions can change in surprising and unpredictable ways.

For this reason, approaches to innovation must be dynamic as well. This calls for adopting a mindset committed to ongoing experimentation and discovery, building a culture that is open and adaptable, and adopting systems that provide stability (as in a single source of truth) while enabling flexibility.

The companies highlighted in this report embody this dynamic flexibility. They serve as models for any organization looking to solve complex problems in unprecedented ways. And while there is no shortage today of complex problems, there is also no limit to what innovative organizations can do to address and overcome them.
