The Four Lenses of Innovation

The “Four Lenses of Innovation” (outlined in Rowan’s bestselling book “Innovation to the Core”) is a high-performance tool for systematic ideation, which is helping some of the world’s most successful companies generate breakthrough opportunities for profitable growth. It gives organizations a practical and easy-to-use methodology for continuously generating new strategic insights and for turning these insights into game-changing innovations. The Four Lenses of Innovation are: 

1. CHALLENGING ORTHODOXIES

– questioning deeply-held dogmas inside a company and inside an industry 

2. HARNESSING TRENDS

– spotting patterns of change which could substantially change the rules of the game

3. LEVERAGING RESOURCES

– looking for ways to stretch or recombine core competencies and strategic assets to create new growth opportunities 

4. UNDERSTANDING NEEDS

– learning to live inside the customer’s skin, empathizing with unarticulated feelings and identifying unmet needs

Rowan Gibson offers in-company programs, ideation sessions and innovation training based on the Four Lenses, that will empower your people to radically rethink your products, services, processes, markets, strategies and business models in order to create new value for customers.
