Barry Magee's insight:

The good folks in Stanford figured out the reason for so much 'good thinking' and innovation in Silicon valley wasn't just the talent pool available - it was HOW people met.  

Simply, people who worked for different companies met at school events, sports events, kids games etc and just started talking.  These 'ACCIDENTAL COLLISIONS' were the source of a lot of overlap thinking and spurred key innovation practices which Stanford has now tried to replicate it its own new campus.

“ In a previous post we described fourteen ways to apply the Business Model Canvas. In this post we elaborate on the idea of using the Canvas to better understand external parties (such as customers, competitors, and partners). By better understanding their businesses you'll come to know their motivations for working with you or against you and you'll understand their possibilities and constraints.”

Why Group Brainstorming Is a Waste of Time

Why Group Brainstorming Is a Waste of Time | genus : innovation through collaboration | Scoop.it
Osborn famously claimed that brainstorming should enhance creative performance by almost 50% versus individuals working on their own. Yet after six decades of independent scientific research, there is very little evidence for the idea that brainstorming produces more or better ideas than the same number of individuals would produce working independently. In fact, a great deal of evidence indicates that brainstorming actually harms creative performance, resulting in a collective performance loss that is the very opposite of synergy.

Nicholas Carr, author of The Glass Cage: Automation and Us, introduces a lesson in generating deeper insights from The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload, by Daniel J. Levitin.
Barry Magee's insight:

Have to agree.  Intuition tells me that there's a correlation between organisation amount of data/tasks/to-dos/projects and the growing number of people demonstrating OCD in the workplace!  Have my suspicions we're all becoming Jack-Of-All-Trades just in the compelling need to 'keep on top' but we are losing value-add activity in creating depth of skill or innovation as we're jumping around so much.  Another one for the reading list....

The Collaboration Paradox: Why Working Together Often Yields Weaker Results

The Collaboration Paradox: Why Working Together Often Yields Weaker Results | genus : innovation through collaboration | Scoop.it
Paul McCartney and John Lennon were not psychologists. But their approach to collaboration highlights many of the recommendations experts are now offering organizations for making groups more effective.McCartney excelled at melody, Lennon at lyrics. His songs were uplifting, Lennon’s had an edge. McCartney was left-handed and, importantly, Lennon was not. Playing together, they each benefited from seeing a song’s chord progression reflected back at them, making it easier to improvise notes that fit the scale.The lesson: Collaborations are most effective when teammates complement rather than replicate one another’s abilities. Skill duplication leads to power struggles.

The reality is that true culture change is hard and it requires sustained effort to have any chance of success.

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration | genus : innovation through collaboration | Scoop.it

Collaboration is an important factor for successful innovation and change. Indeed, collaboration is an imperative for most organizations today, including any organization undergoing change. Innovation requires collaboration between individuals, as well as systemic forms of collaboration that span silos, networks and surprising connections. And yet collaboration cannot be mandated. Collaboration just doesn’t work like that.

Claude Emond's comment, July 14, 2014 9:13 AM
Most stakeholder «management» tools and techniques are based on measuring (whatever it means) Power and Influence. This is mostly done without open discussion with the stakeholders and highly manipulative in its intent. It does not either consider meta game and alliance among unlikely collaborators. The model you found, Kenneth is thus a pace towards a better way, something that «engage» stakeholders instead of «managing/trying to manipulate» them. Thanks a lot :)

“For scientific discovery give me Scott; for speed and efficiency of travel give me Amundsen; but when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.

Barry Magee's insight:

in most situations, with predictable problems, a hierarchical command structure is very, very effective. But, in unpredictable circumstances, this kind of structure can be inadequate. It often fails. Leading through a crisis, any crisis – man-made or natural disaster, requires decisions to be made in a world of imperfect knowledge and uncertain results. It requires the strengths we saw in Shackleton’s crew – the ability to try something, fail and immediately try something else....
