FAQ'sThe frequently asked questions…
How can I make time for innovation and at the same time maintain the current level of existing business?
A challenging issue. There is no ready-made recipe. On the one hand, you want to maintain and even strengthen your existing business – that’s where the money comes from now. And yet, if you only focus on current business you know the organization will be standing still. On the other hand you know that you should pay attention to structural innovation. That’s where the future revenue comes from. Part of the answer, therefore, is that you should redesign your organization for structural innovation. Not ad hoc and as an one-off innovation project, but ongoing.

How do I get good ideas and how many do I need?
In many organizations, there are a few ideas, but not enough, and certainly not groundbreaking enough. Various studies have shown that out of a 100 ideas 8 are approximately turned into successful products and services. This means that a just few good ideas is not good enough. The more the better, rather 200 than 100. How do you get that many ideas? There are many ways. TWNQL’s method is inspired on the lateral thinking techniques of De Bono.
