Business innovation skills can be brought in from outside an organisation. David Moschella discusses changing the structure of a business to incorporate external capabilities:

Business innovation skills are everywhere.

We talk a lot in our work about this shift from an inside out to more of an outside in organisation. And what we mean by that is really quite simple. That traditionally firms were very focused on their own internal resources, internal capabilities and skills and had their own internal value chain of how they did things. But today there’s so much capabilities outside in the marketplace of cloud services, the knowledge of employees, partners, the emerging eco systems, that firms need to in many cases look first to the outside world to find resources, capabilities, transient issues, and secondary to their own organisations. And that’s a big shift particularly for enterprise IT people who have grown up in a world of internal systems, internal procedures, internal processes and internal controls.
