Government & NGOs

Managing innovation requires a dual approach. On one hand, management implies structure, order and control; however, creativity and new ideas work best in free flow environment of trial and error. Which explains why many government innovation programs struggle at finding the right balance between performance and creativity.

 

Science and technology initiatives, such as tax credits or research grants, have been used by public service agencies as a way to promote growth of small and medium enterprises. However, the success of these approaches is often hampered by overlapping mandates that result in confusion and frustration for users trying to navigate a complex web of rules and regulations. 

 

Part of the problem is that government and corporate goals may are not always aligned, resulting in friction and frustration for both parties. This is why my understanding of policy along with knowledge of technology, manufacturing and entrepreneurship can be useful in finding solutions that encourage public investment and help industries develop paths towards commercialization.
