Invention v. Reinvention In The Age of Disruption

Invention v. Reinvention In The Age of Disruption | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:

This post was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti about a very important topic, navigating change through the age of disruption.


Here are a few highlights:


The infusion of new ideas and the understanding of whether necessary change can be accomplished in a timely and effective manner from within and when to seek that freshness externally, are vital to the continued success of any company.


The importance of the ability to accept that something you do, whether a large or small aspect of your processes, has become a hindrance to your future growth and must be replaced, cannot be minimised.

Conscience is the Knowledge That Someone is Watching | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

This was posted by Daniel Honen on Big Think


Very interesting series of videos on the discussion by Larry Summers of Big Think and the Nantucket Project a festival of ideas held on Nantucket, Massachusetts this month. The comments at the bottom are worth reading as well.


Intro:


The panel was stacked with financial heavyweights Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, Larry Summers, Former Treasury Secretary and President of Harvard University, Hedge Fund Manager Eddie Lampert, venture capitalist Stephen DeBerry and Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments. The panel was moderated by Tom Stewart, Chief Knowledge Officer at Booz and Company


****The question of short-termism was the subject of a lively panel at  Stewart, Chief Knowledge Officer at Booz and Company. The full panel can be viewed here.


The highlights in this post bellow follow an exchange between


****Larry Summers and Eric Schmidt, in response to Tom Stewart's question about


*****whether it is difficult for a CEO to embrace the long view if he has to live and die quarter-by-quarter.


****Schmidt immediately turned this question back to the panel and audience, by posing the rhetorical question,


****"How long is the future?"


Watch Eric Schmidt here:
