g-f(2)224 The Big Picture of the Digital Age (4/17/2021), HBR, Innovation Starts with Defining the Right Constraints.

Extra-condensed knowledge

A consistent lesson from the research on innovation: while unshackled creativity might intuitively seem to be the best route to novelty, actually some of the most innovative outcomes are produced when innovation is constrained.
  • But the type and quality of constraints matter. 
  • While both outcome and time constraints are, we argue, individually better than budget or risk constraints, they are at their most effective when combined.
    • We’ve seen this in the development of Covid-19 vaccines.
