How about the opportunity to succeed from or be rewarded for innovation? To innovate often requires that the organization go above and beyond their comfort level to achieve results. The opportunity to succeed, with the assurance that the organization won't unduly punish itself in the process.
Certainly, it takes investment to produce advances in technology, but I think that is only one of the necessary ingredients. It also requires a culture of innovation. Innovation needs to be encouraged, even required, from the organization.
Any ideas regarding other ingredients for innovation?
