The author presents his views about innovation which most leaders affirmed to be a critical capability. He said that many leaders are paying lip service to innovation and have no purpose of working hard on it. In order to make innovation a deep capability, one must enlarge his view of innovation and imagine what could be and devote less time and energy to optimizing what is present. R&D is supposed to work with marketing and are supposed to innovate.
