Unfortunately there is no app for innovation (although that would certainly be innovative). Until that’s developed, the best way we’ve found to foster it at Google is to create an environment where ideas can collide in new and interesting ways, and the good ones are given resources to grow.
One of the reasons that Google operates differently than other companies is that we haven’t tried to wall off innovation to one particular department or project. Everyone is encouraged to look for new ways of doing things, and successful pilots are quickly scaled.
