Everyone loves innovation. Yet people tasked with starting an innovation program quickly find that there are innumerable roadblocks. Why do these exist, and what can you do about them?
Usually, innovation roadblocks exist because current practices help staff to accomplish certain objectives, and shaking things up will threaten those aims.
