While there are similarities with some other studies, this specific list is one of the best combination of characteristics I have seen in a long time.

Probably the biggest reason for the sad state of innovation today is the pervasive ignorance about what it takes to be a successful innovator. You may be shocked at how difficult it is to get training in anything like innovation best practices as a college major or through company innovation training programs.  Take a close listen to the facts in this podcast and see if it does not change your thinking about how much training your company needs if it is going to be dramatically more successful with its innovations.

Least you think the sad state of innovation is old news, when you look at innovation today, especially by some companies previously known for innovation, the state of innovation gets even more concerning.  For example, what is happening at Apple now that they no longer have Steve Jobs?
