A Hole in the Ceiling

Just when I thought innovation—or “design thinking”—couldn’t get much hotter, I see that BusinessWeek has launched a quarterly magazine within the magazine: Inside Innovation. In this mini-mag, innovation is hailed as “the new currency of competition … the Holy Grail of 21st century business.” But more interesting is Inside Innovation‘s choice for its top 25 Champions of Innovation (C-suite executives from Chief Innovation Officers to Chief Marketing Officers) who are hell-bent on transforming their companies’ cultures in pursuit of design thinking: nearly 70% are women. Is this where two mega-trends in business (innovation and women’s leadership) join forces for maximum impact? Has innovation cut a permanent hole in the ceiling?
