Introducing the 2016 Real Innovation Awards 

In our previous newsletter we said that we were on the verge of launching a new ‘innovation’ award and we’d be sending out a special edition of DeBrief to tell you more about it. We’re pleased to say that the ‘Real Innovation Awards’ is now open for nominations.
We’ve introduced these awards as a recognition that ‘real’ innovation is messy. 
It rarely happens in a systematic way. That’s where the Real Innovation Awards comes in. Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Management Today have teamed up to explode innovation myths and highlight the people and the companies that exemplify how innovation really works. We are offering awards for the ideas, people and activities often neglected.
Introducing the Real Innovation Awards
We all know innovation rarely happens in a systematic and predictable way,” says Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. “It is haphazard, serendipitous, and often requires a good dose of luck.” These are the qualities celebrated at the Real Innovation Awards.

Nominate people, teams and companies for one of the seven award categories:
  • The "Before-its-Time Award"
  • The "If At First You Don't Succeed Award"
  • The "Eat Your Own Lunch Award"
  • The "Fast Follower Award"
  • The "George Bernard Shaw Unreasonable Person Award"
  • The "Alexander Fleming Serendipity Award"
  • The "Harnessing the Winds of Change Award".
Let’s celebrate the less known but deserving innovators!
