Saco’s laws on innovation management:

1. Any structure in a company that persists for a long time tends to become permanent

2. The higher the innovation project budget is, the stronger the trend to persist.

3. Any control department that does not understand well the mechanisms involved in the value creation of an innovation tries always to cut the innovation expenses.
