I’m convinced, and so was Einstein, that the important thing in creativity and innovation is problem posing. There’s a great amount of efforts in solving problems but what you need first is people or experts capable of formulate the problem. Perhaps this formulation is different of the problem you had in mind and you have to change your path or your approach to the problem. Don’t be afraid of it. Problems are as a spider web, and you need people strategically situated. This is the most important people for you, and is vital to give them conditions to make their work and attend their motivations that should be focused in the task rather than in the money.
Accept uncertainty, and even increased it. It’s good to focus in the strategic goals and be open and flexible with the path to obtain them.
Invert in creativity and innovation. The creative people of your team or your organization add value constantly. Be focused in them.
