Stealth Innovation as a Solution
This HBR article suggests it is not. I suggest that stealth is one tool to get innovation done. It creates a startup style atmosphere that does not look to get immediate and ongoing approval. It works with the right corporate environment. Transferal to budgets under organization control usually makes sense at some later time. So I suggest stealth is good, properly and selectively applied. We did this with our innovation centers, with an executive champion, to considerable ultimate success.
