Your MSP company can change the technology world with a simple idea. Apple and Facebook are massive companies which are proof positive of that reality. Neither Apple nor Facebook did anything technologically groundbreaking; they simply pivoted from existing technology using their own ideas.
You want good ideas, but they don’t come from a vacuum. Following are several tips to help you stimulate the environment of your MSP toward idea creation:
Curiosity Is Considerable
An MSP company lives on curiosity. This is how most tech professionals become attracted to the field. They’re curious about varying aspects of computational technology and so seek out answers to their questions, eventually getting to the point where they themselves facilitate innovation.
Find ways of fostering such curiosity internally. Give team members time to play with tech, and give them voice in terms of design, as well as input. Maybe, have some monthly mystery box with an incentive attached for those who solve a tech riddle.
Design a Luxurious Margin of Error
Not all MSPs will have the ability to source techs that purely innovate. However, the greater a margin of error you give them to explore curiosity, the more discoveries will be made. Design a margin of error allowing for some losses, and you’ll likely see discoveries worth the expense.
Lead with Secure, Courageous Assurance
Leadership requires strong assurance and should strive to pass that assurance to employees. It’s easier to follow a secure and courageous tech professional than some frightened pencil pusher.
A Continuous Fountain of Ideas
An MSP company is acting as a tech facilitating agent for many different clients. In order to remain secure, properly serve them, and remain competitive, you want new ideas that lead to new developments. Facilitating internal curiosity, providing teams a wide margin of error, and leading from a place of assured security are all tactics likely to have a positive effect in terms of idea stimulation.
