Nilofer Merchant, a frequent contributor of Harvard Business Review and author of “The New How”, describes the formula for creating a culture of innovation:  Success = Purpose + Talent + Culture.  Purpose is aligning everyone in the organization to it’s strategy — nimble adaptive communities with a shared purpose.  Talent requires bringing more people into the discussion, increasing collaboration and building trust.  Culture holds the organization together and dictates how we create.   Shift the discussion in your organization from numbers, strategy and issues to culture, purpose and talent.  Watch the velocity of innovation accelerate!
