If you accept the consequences of previous awakenings then only one awakening remains. What could be a strategy to disrupt the culture of an organization? How to embed Red Monkey Innovation Management by using previous insights and by using the EOI Agility Matrix and the EOI Portfolio Matrix? Where to start?

Based on 30 years of experience in organizational development and passionate system thinking, we developed the EOI Deployment Guide. This guide helps you to embed Red Monkey Innovation Management by using 3 EOI Deployment Tools.

EOI Mission Boxing

This is an executive game. The EOI Mission Box brings the power of the EOI Portfolio Matrix and the EOI Agity Matrix together in one metaphor or EOI Tool. CEO’s are responsible for starting an Engine of Innovation Culture Innovation Process by giving the right Executives the authority to disrupt the culture of their business unit.

This happens by handing over an EOI Mission Box to these Executives. It makes them visible for the organization. Business Innovation powered by EOI Culture Innovation starts organic. It starts with a coalition of the EOI Willing. It starts with actions taken by the CEO or Owners.

EOI Dashboarding

In order to keep course we developed the Engine of Innovation Tuning Compass. This compass not only gives direction for EOI Culture Innovation but can also be used to measure your progress in 8 EOI Tuning Areas. These areas match the 8 EOI Tuning Areas of the EOI Agility and Portfolio Matrix.

Executives that go for EOI Culture Innovation are aware that EOI Culture Innovation has to result in business results. For this reason they correlate the outcome of EOI Culture Innovation with a Business Innovation Dashboard that visualizes ‘Business Innovation powered by EOI Culture Innovation’. They create passion to innovate within their part of the organization. They create an EOI Dashboard.
