Erika Harrison's curator insight, December 27, 2013 5:23 PM

“Often, answers are baked into the questions we ask. We need to question, examine, and reframe the questions we’re asking.”

 

About this presentation

Determined not to just write just another book on creativity, Stanford professor Tina Seelig painstakingly researched what makes good ideas spring forward. The result is her “innovation engine,” a special mix of six characteristics like attitude, resources and environment.

 

But the special concoction of forces that makes our ideas come to life is nothing with out the willingness to fail. “Most call it failure, but we scientists just call it data,” she says. The most creative organizations and people embrace experimentation to get the needed data to determine they’re on to something. 

 

“Workers are puzzle builders, they get stuck when missing a piece,” she says. Truly creative people “are quilt makers — they can fit anything together.”

 

About Tina Seelig

Tina Seelig is the executive director for the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and the director of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter) at Stanford University’s School of Engineering. She teaches courses on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the department of Management Science and Engineering, and within the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford. She received the 2009 Gordon Prize from the National Academy of Engineering, recognizing her as a national leader in engineering education.

 

Seelig earned her PhD in 1985 from Stanford University School of Medicine, where she studied Neuroscience. She has been a management consultant, multimedia producer, and an entrepreneur. Seelig has also written 16 popular science books and educational games. Her newest books are Wish I Knew When I Was 20 (HarperCollins 2009) and inGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity(HarperCollins 2012).

CenturyLinkVoice: Beyond IT: How CIOs Are Boosting Business Through Innovation

CenturyLinkVoice: Beyond IT: How CIOs Are Boosting Business Through Innovation | Creativity & Innovation | Scoop.it
Forget the old notions of what a CIO should be.

That’s because in today’s technology-reliant business environment, the role of the CIO is evolving.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Not doubt about it, we are at the end of an era and at the beginning of a new one.


Every revolution, such as the prinery at its time by Gutenberg (1454) (which made the knowledge available to a wide audience, concluding the Middle Age era and initiating the Enlightenment era) or even the industrial revolution is the combination of two main factors: the available technology and a global willingness of change


As lot of the protagonists, previous leaders will either change or disappear. As such, any CIOs need to make a choice: either stay in the past and remain the legacy operator or take another position as an enabler to this change.

Innovation Excellence | Changing the Innovation Game | Creativity & Innovation | Scoop.it
Open Innovation has gained a lot of traction since Henry Chesbrough’s eponymous 2003 book. Simplistically, it can be split into two. The first, the vast majority, is inbound, where a business uses the assets of other companies to develop something new and take it to market. The second is outbound, where a company licenses its assets to somebody else to take to market.

The Three Horizon Approach to Innovation

The Three Horizon Approach to Innovation | Creativity & Innovation | Scoop.it
The three horizons for innovation thinking

Thinking through the management of innovation have you ever considered the Three Horizons approach?  It is likely through this approach business leaders can adopt an evolutionary perspective across the entire innovation business portfolio.

If you are using a three horizons type approach to innovation, it becomes clear that you need to continue investing in innovative activities across all three time horizons, even if you’re in the middle of a present day crisis. To do this effectively, you need to have some idea of where you’re heading in the future, and that’s why I think it’s a useful tool for linking innovation to strategy.

How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget

How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget | Creativity & Innovation | Scoop.it
Here’s the scene: A problem has come up with one of your supply chain vendors, threatening to delay timely shipment of your product. At the same time, a potential opportunity appears that, with some exploration and investment, could lead to a new generation of products down the road. Which do you respond to first? You probably reach for your firefighter’s hat to extinguish the short-term problem. And therein lies a bigger problem. Leaders and organizations are under more stress than ever to do two things simultaneously: deliver on today’s pressing commitments by troubleshooting and refining processes; and find and invest in innovation opportunities that will create tomorrow’s success. How your organization responds to this stress in allocating scarce resources is a crucial but often unaddressed issue. The natural bias is to respond immediately to what is in front of you (like answering endless emails as they come in, for instance). The problem is, this instinct crowds out longer term, innovative thinking.

Move from continuous improvement to continuous innovation (transcript) by Brad Power

Move from continuous improvement to continuous innovation (transcript) by Brad Power | Creativity & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Continuous improvement can be a little bit like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic if your business is in the process of being disrupted by fast-moving digital innovators", says consultant and researcher Brad Power. Instead, he says, "companies need to ask themselves hard questions about what business they are really in and develop a management system that helps support a continuous process of innovation."

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"Continuous innovation argues is that in organizations today, it’s not good enough just to do continuous improvement and it’s not good enough just to be doing episodic innovation."


Agree with Brad, I've seen way to often people putting "continuous improvement" and "innovation" against each others. Both are needed and not enough by themselves, combining them through "continuous innovation" might be a way to really achieve needed changes. 


"Change" is a complex recipe that requires a lot of different ingredients and know-how.
