"We should be failing more, because there's a lot of opportunity that we're missing" Mark Randall (2015)One of the key concepts is to work within the product paradigm. In fact the Kickbox approach is itself treated like a product too. A 'desert island kit' to enable someone to bring innovation to fruition. Each of the contents of the red Kickbox removes a barrier to innovation. No oversight, full responsibility, full autonomy, no receipts for expenditure required! Is it a process or is it a way of thinking? Randall insists the numbered activities can be done in any order, the numbered steps in each of the 6 levels are supporting measures, checklists, challenges etc.
"Any employee can request a Kickbox – and managers are prevented from vetoing the request." (HBR, 2015)
