Know the Enemies of Innovation to Get Prepared for Challenges
Any radical innovation or change has many internal and external enemies.

Don't be negative or cynical, be anticipative and constructive. The objective is to anticipate challenges with the implementation plan and to turn them to opportunities. 

Look at the flop potential of your invention. Why could it fail? Why will your brilliant invention or change initiative flop? What are the barriers to success and their root causes?
Take a very pessimistic point of view, define the risk areas of your implementation plan, and imagine the worst, yet quite possible, to get prepared for challenges.
People underperform because of insufficient motivation, strategic alignment, expertise or collaboration.
Key people leave the project; too many external stakeholders resist to change.
The prototype or the final product doesnít meet the envisioned qualities because of poor cross-functional cross-pollination of ideas and collaboration, or because itís just too difficult to produce, or because it brings along unforeseen huge problems.
Errors in development; production delays; financial problems, cost overruns.
Competitive pre-emption, barriers to entry, hostile actions.
Customer apathy or unfavourable perceptions; too low cost/benefit ratio of your value proposition; poor marketing results.
Business failure of retailers; changes in laws; worsened economic conditions.

When the enemy creates a challenging problem, encourage diverse thoughts through independent ideation. Understand the problem and constraints, then set your team free to independently cultivate divergent thinking. Ideas from others are initially hidden to stimulate free thinking. After 5 to 10 minutes, the participants reveal their individual ideas and see if some of then can be synergized. The team leader evaluates the final contributions and selects the most promising one as the next move of the team.
