Since my last post on this subject back in January, I’ve been spending as much time as I can reading up on emerging ideas for achieving reliable innovation, especially for those project portfolios that depend heavily on a steady stream of breakthroughs in order to deliver on their scope, schedule, and budget commitments. In addition, I’ve sought out experts on the subject to gain their insights and kick some ideas around. One such expert has been particularly engaging: Dr. Oliver Schlake, Professor of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business.
I recently had the opportunity to capture a conversation with Oliver in a “PM Point of View” podcast, under the expert facilitation of Kendall Lott. PM Point of View is a very professionally done monthly podcast series that Kendall spearheaded in early 2014 as CEO of the PMI Washington DC Chapter. The series brings together an eclectic mix of unusual PM perspectives, spanning winemaking, the creative arts, and now, reliable innovation.
