Innovation: 3m's lessons to be learned 3m takes a long-term approach to the new product development process by creating a culture of innovation that encourages risk-taking, tolerates mistakes made. Introduction any review of the literature on new product development and innovation management will uncover numerous references to 3m the organisation is synonymous with innovation and has been described as ‘a smooth running innovation machine’ (mitchell, 1989. Innovation is a process for solving problems -- a cycle that must repeat as long as challenges and obstacles exist in many cases, the word innovation is used to describe the outcome of this process and this is where we must be careful.
Evolution is an increase in maturation and complexity, and does not have to necessarily follow the path of darwinian evolution, which is modification by descent – nature introduces small. How has 3m’s innovation process evolved since the company was founded why, if at all, does 3m, known as a “hothouse” of innovation, need to regain its historical closeness to the customer 3m’s dedication to innovation began in the 1900’s and was established to better understanding customer needs. Question 1 1 how has 3m’s innovation process evolved since the company was founded why, if at all, does 3m, known as a “hothouse” of innovation, need to regain its historic closeness to the customer the original minnesota mining and manufacturing company aka 3m first started out as a maker of sandpaper, with its top resource being used as a rare mineral corundum that would be marketed.
Everett rogers (in rogers, 1962, 1983 rogers and schoemaker, 1971) has set forth perhaps the most widely accepted view of the innovation process as a result of his own research (encompassing more than a quarter of a century) and a synthesis of more than 3,100 publications on innovation diffusion. Process innovations (eg, a way to modify a gene in a plant) and product innovations (eg, a new seed variety) the ownership of rights to a process that is crucial in will see how intellectual property rights and regulations affect the evolution of innovation and the distribution of benefits derived from them. Innovation that changed the world one hundred years ago today, henry ford and his team at highland park assembly plant launched the world’s greatest contribution to manufacturing – the first moving assembly lineit simplified assembly of the ford model t’s 3,000 parts by breaking it into 84 distinct steps performed by groups of workers as a rope pulled the vehicle chassis down the line.
