Building Innovation Capital

Dealing with the innovation legacy lying within your business. | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it
I know the feeling, there has been such a considerable investment that has gone into previous innovation processes to get them established but much of this is actually out of date, it has become today a real ‘legacy’ issue but there is, of course, a real reluctance to challenge it. Well you should!

Innovation Leadership – Nine critical functions. 

Innovation Leadership – Nine critical functions.  | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it
Innovation leadership refers to the different leadership styles needed to influence employees’ innovative behaviour to generate creative ideas that promote innovative products, services, and solutions in organisations.

This style of leadership is one that fosters the following nine dimensions which are critical to promote a climate conducive to creative thinking and organisational innovation. The corresponding questions for each dimension will assist you to determine how many boxes you can tick, and whether innovative leadership is happening within your team/organisation.

Disruption has been going on around us over different generations. Something simply disrupts something else such as the change from the horse and pony, steamboats then onto trains, then aircraft, or the telegraph replaced by the, fixed telephone, too the mobile phone, or the mainframe computer to the personal computer onto today’s smartphone. Everything invented seems to have been disrupted or seems about too.

4 Ways to Become a Better Learner

4 Ways to Become a Better Learner | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

Learning agility is the capacity for rapid, continuous learning from experience. Agile learners are good at making connections across experiences, and they’re able to let go of perspectives or approaches that are no longer useful — in other words, they can unlearn things when novel solutions are required. People with this mindset tend to be oriented toward learning goals and open to new experiences. They experiment, seek feedback, and reflect systematically.

7 characteristics of a digital mindset

7 characteristics of a digital mindset | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

We are living in a complex and changing world bombarded by novel and unforeseen challenges. Complexity calls for diversity of thoughts, approaches and ideas to solve issues, and past experiences and expertise are not necessarily reliable predictors of the future. Innovating and creating value in this context require a coming together of cognitively diverse individuals who come with varied experiences and different ways of seeing. An individual with a digital mindset understands the power of technology to democratize scale and speed up every form of interaction and action

What prevents individuals and organizations from innovating is their mindset.

Being innovative requires a deep understanding of the world we live in. Innovators should not fall into traps such as thinking that "everybody loves innovation" or "innovation is easy"... This article gives the 2 side of the coin, when it comes to innovation, for the innovators and the non-innovators.

Are there new ways to think about our digital workplace skills that allows us to take our thinking up to a new plane, the next meta-level of thinking and working where we have much higher leverage, can manage change that is an order of magnitude or greater in volume than today, work in fundamentally better and smarter new ways — and perhaps even work a bit less — yet produce much more value?

We Learn More When We Learn Together

We Learn More When We Learn Together | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

We rarely grow alone. In fact, some psychologists have made a compelling case that we only grow in connection with others. However, we don’t need to learn with others in formal training or development programs: we can architect our own opportunities to gain insight, knowledge, and skills that move us on an upward trajectory. We can have more control over our learning at work if we make building high-quality connections a priority.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 13, 11:51 AM

As employers’ training and development investments wane, we all have to take charge of our development. You can amplify opportunities for growth and learning by cultivating high-quality connections. Look for them inside and outside your team at work and beyond the boundaries of your organization, or even outside your professional life. The great thing about investing in building and maintaining these connections is that everyone wins.

2015 was a crazily fast-paced year in India’s tech startup world. From an entrepreneur or potential entrepreneur’s perspective, it was like the gold rush – it was easy to raise funds (and large sums at that) very quickly as long as you were tackling a problem or space that was “hot” according to the larger venture capital firms (both Indian and global).
