In the previous chapters, we have critically examined the reasons behind the current cross-sector demand for innovation. We have also outlined the nature and scales of the challenges innovation leaders confront as they navigate morphing economic and social conditions characterized by complexity, ambiguity and disequilibrium. In order to succeed in these conditions, the innovation leader uses strategies focusing on framing problems in complex systems, co-creating in transdisciplinary contexts, and scaling solutions.
