The nature of change has changed. With the hyper-acceleration of disruptive technologies coming to market, the adoption of innovation has become crucial to national economic policy and the survival of organizations both large and small. The question is, in a world where whole industries transform over seasons and geographic centers of innovation shift between decades, how do organizations encode innovation into their DNA to stay relevant for the long-term?”
-Steve Kingsley, Xinova Innovator
I doubt the first two jump to mind when you think of R&D strategy: that takes collaborative partnerships versus deceit to defeat and vanquish. And incremental improvements rarely result in true innovation either. R&D strategy takes on more of a form of game theory: strategic interaction between rational decision-makers. We posit that by ensuring you have a radically large “n” of rational decision-makers (like the precocious PhDs from Keon Research) outside your direct employment, you can continuously deliver inventive thinking and be a leader in innovation.
Fast Company named Xinova one of the 50 best workplaces for innovators in their inaugural list. They, in collaboration with Accenture, highlighted work cultures that cultivate big ideas and the freedom to fail because inventive thinking has never been more critical. Change is accelerating. Braiding co-innovation together with R&D and business strategy will help you get ahead of that change.
I want to hear your thoughts on R&D strategy and management too. Get paid to write a blog for Xinova on R&D-focused topics, like finding the Golden Innovation Metric.

Amanda Zila got her Ph.D. in Pharmacology, Melissa Smith has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Mathieu Larronde-Larretche’s Ph.D. is on Process and Environmental Engineering. Each one is an exceptional scholar, but since there is no degree program in inventing or rapid prototyping exists, Keon Research has served as their post-doc institution for advanced studies in innovation.
We’re honored! For Fast Company‘s inaugural Best Workplaces for Innovators list, companies were identified that empower all employees—not just top executives, scientists, or coders—to create new products, improve operations and take risks. These are businesses where innovation isn’t just a buzzword but a part of the value system and culture. This is what Xinova is all about.
