June 18, 2015 – Phoenix Senior Advisors Scott Bermingham and Charlie Leichtweis’ article “The Hidden Barriers to Bottom-Up Innovation” has been published by CEO.com. They write:
Strict top-down models tend to be limited in scope, and do not get the feedback needed from front-line stakeholders to be realistic, especially when it comes to innovative thinking. A “reverse waterfall” strategy solves this dilemma and delivers the best of both worlds in terms of meaningful innovation, cost savings and improvements on an end-to-end basis.
Bermingham and Leichtweis discuss the barriers to bottom-up innovation and how to overcome them to achieve solid, measurable results from ongoing innovation.
