anandvy, in that case let's just remove the management :-) let the actual innovators drive!

@t.alex: True enough. Though the knowledge that is acquired (as far as management is concerned) has to be different from the competition otherwise the marketing of a product would suffer similar hiccups if it is to follow the footsteps of other marketing ideas.

More design complexities mean:

1.            More pressure created in designers and engineers

2.            Without understanding the product design, marketing cannot be done efficiently

3.            Lots of resources necessary to understand and use the building blocks of product design

However, this gap will slowly reduce itself, because if some parts of the industry are moving slow, other parts of the industry are moving fast, and the knowledge from these parts will affect the design and marketing principles for a product. Only technology can solve the problems associated with designing. The building blocks will be easily understood if designers follow that kind of technology which makes the designing of a product with the use of these blocks easy.

@Hailey: Yes, that is what is happening. And due to this, new ideas which lead to some innovation gets compromised.

I think that it may be a matter of allowing designers "white space" time for playing around wiht new technologies or researching new ideas. Those engineers that are forced to keep their nose to the grindstone all the time simply won't ever have an opportunity to think about anything other than what is happening right now.

Can you plan innovation?

It is very difficult for me understand that - how one can plan and speed up innovation? If that can be done, is that innovation or just new design.

Innovation can happen anywhere and one may be innovator with very little resources. Time line for this pretty much random. But how can you plan and speed up innovation?

I think that involvement in open source projects is going to be, in the not too distant future, a matter of course for most engineers. It's a good way to demonstrate expertise, it helps products to evolve more quickly and in new directions, and i think innovation is improved when many thinkers spur each other on.

With internet and open-source approach towards development, innovation is reaching a higher speed. New knowledge can be acquired faster, new market can be easily developed and companies have to keep on learning and innovating.
