Chief Innovation Officer, Issue 2

The second edition of the Chief Innovation Officer magazine


Welcome to the second edition of Chief Innovation Officer.

The first issue was a great success, with the magazine getting a lot of excellent feedback, something we’re grateful for.

We’re looking to build upon this success in this instalment, with a number of exciting trends discussed.

As one of the world’s most consistent innovators, Google are a company we always keep a firm eye on. In our featured article we examine why Google acquired eight robotics companies in 2014 and whether this latest ‘moonshot’ will be a success.

In addition to this, we will look at how companies can hinder their innovation efforts by inadvertently encouraging a culture of fear. We will discover how important it is for companies to create open environments where employees aren’t scared to go to senior management when they have reservations about a project.

In addition to this edition’s articles, we have also included a section of interviews from prominent open innovators. This will bring you first-hand experiences from some of the world’s top professionals in this area and demonstrate how they are using Open Innovation to accelerate change.

We hope you enjoy the magazine, it has been created to help spread new ideas within innovation and Chief Innovation Officers, so if you have any feedback please get in touch with me at

Also, if you like the magazine, please share it.
