@Elizabeth - excellent point. Groups or departments hardly ever look at the greater good for the organization. Each has a goal, and sometimes, sadly, will put getting attention and a reward over the better choice for the business. And maybe, a wish should be folded into someone else's plan.

@Patrick - the plan is key to know what and how your going to do it. Resources and time are finite. Good summary.

I love Tom Fishburne's cartoons and the message. Have a couple pinned up at my desk.

I think the essence of your message here is that you need to make trade-offs, work with what you have - and go beyond surface talk on innovating and execute. And to execute, you need to plan - put some stakes down and build the map if there isn't one.

Loved the post, Valeria. Related to your point on infrastructure, I might add another question to your list:

Can we achieve this goal without harming or minimizing our other business goals?

The era of innovation sometimes means that companies want to focus on seductive visions and "hot" ideas. But they could wind up robbing Peter to pay Paul...

I guess my point is that sometimes a "wish should stay a wish."
