The 3 Pillar Model


Innovation activities that generate tangible innovative projects, creating short mid and long term return-on-innovation.


Providing employees with the skills required to think innovatively and manage innovation in the organization.


Putting in place a plan that supports a culture of innovation, including management involvement and commitment, as well as cross organizational understanding and cooperation.

The 3-pillar model is an organizational innovation model consisting of 3 Innovation Pillars, which – when combined – provide the framework for self-sustained innovation.

3 pillar model

Each of the program’s activities will contain elements from all three pillars, although one of the pillars will typically be dominant at a given time.

For example, initially we are more likely to focus on creating immediate and mid-term results to achieve a quick ROI (Return on Innovation), but this will also create the engagement to drive the innovation buzz and momentum. In effect, it will supply participants in the project with practical tools for innovative thinking.

Effectively utilizing the three-pillar model ensures innovation will become continuous, systematic and reliable.

I was impressed by the quality of the ideas that came out of the process.  Working within constraints as opposed to the “all limits off” philosophy we had been exposed to previously served as a reality check and introduced us to a robust way of approaching innovation.
