Today, there are few companies more innovative than Uber. Anyone who has had the experience of getting into a friendly, clean Uber to travel to your next destination understands this. Even more, their aggressive move into driverless cars and food delivery shows they're just getting started with changing our world.
While companies like Uber are a clear example of innovation, too many healthcare organizations are still struggling to drive innovation. In fact, many organizations inadvertently kill innovation. So, in the spirit of Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs and Uber's CEO, Travis Kalanick, here are three actions healthcare leaders can take to foster innovation.
Calculated risk with small bets is smartest, but failure to try new ideas, gamble on new people and push change will leave a whole host of organizations waiting to be acquired by those who are succeeding ...or worse yet, left behind and out of business.
Let's be sure our actions are not inadvertently killing innovation but leading the change we need today!
