In large organizations, processes can be handled like a relay race. R&D starts with the baton and passes it on to Manufacturing, who in turn passes it on Marketing and so on. This baton passing is an efficient way to move a process forward across a siloed organization. However, these linear processes lack collaboration, which is key to innovation. Tivo, known for innovative products, brings product managers, marketers, designers, engineers, and user advocates together to work closely on projects. Find ways to bring teams together to collaborate on specific projects rather than simply checking and reviewing each other’s work. Coordinated processes are efficient — collaborative processes are innovative.
