The innovation cycle starts with FAILURES that create PAIN in a system. Great pain creates TENSIONS that power the creative and adaptive capabilities of people and organizations to innovate. This generates new mental maps that enable the emergence of value-creating INNOVATION and novel GROWTH.
Innovations are born through mindful DISCOVERY that tests their feasibility. A few then advance to INCUBATION to remove technical risk. A small subset of these then moves forward to ACCELERATION to remove commercial risk. Just one in a thousand discoveries will make it to the final mindless state of SCALING on a commercial level.
