Innovation – where does it spring from?

I have just come across this article in Harvard Business Review from Beth Comstock of GE, which explores where innovation comes from and how structures can be set up to encourage it:

I recognise a lot from my own experience and my way of working in here.

More specifically, Urban Regeneration and Growth has to be planned for and tackled in this way – bringing together many different things and ideas and then integrating them into an integrated whole. There are many experts in many of the different specialities but we need more people who are capable of bringing (and like to bring) all of them together and get them all working together. As Beth Comstock says “someone to join the dots”.
