the opportunity to generate work process innovations through the application of IT and basic industrial engineering seems to be infinite.Work processes in alot of traditional organizations have gone on unexamined for a long period of time.
This creates wastage and of course missed opportunities.
Application of process mapping tools and the fusion of work processes with IT tools and capabilities yields a treasure of work process innovation opportunities.
Y this is not a focus of organizations is a mystery to me?

i have recently facilitated a session on the development of an intranet based innovation development system.It came as a cool surprise to me that the sparks of innovation are visible in organizations but it does take some time to sift through the night to find them. Organizational personnel have tried to develop these systems voluntarily and they run it after they have finished their daily work chores.
Innovation is so critical to the success and growth of an organization so y don't organizations build intranet based innovation development systems which can guide the innovator on the tricky path of innovation and also act as a backbone for the innovation effort in it.
I CAN'T COCEIVE OF AN ORGANIZATION SYSTEM THAT WOULD TAKE UP SO FEW RESOURCES AND YIELD SO MUCH.
