StratChat Replay: Building an Innovation Pipeline in an Ambidextrous Organization with Bosch


When making investments in innovation, leaders often falsely assume that they can pick the winning ideas on day one. But the uncertainty of innovation makes it impossible to know exactly which ideas are going to win.

Our work with Bosch has shown that it is better to make many small bets and then allow the winning ideas and teams to emerge by creating the right context.

Watch the replay of what was a fascinating discussion with valuable of insights into the innovation thinking and execution of a multi-billion dollar company.
