Why Can't We Solve The Problem Of Short-Termism?

Why Can't We Solve The Problem Of Short-Termism? | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

The reason we can’t solve the problem of short-termism is that it’s just a symptom. The real disease is maximizing shareholder value.

Somehow it's even ridiculous... First everybody is for to kill short-termism... great... then, basically the same bunch of people are finding out that short-termism is like the phoenix bird it cannot be killed... great... then, basically the same bunch of people are finding out that the basic problem is not short-termism any more... great... I find this ridiculous, don't you?

Innovation covers much, we need to open our thinking to explore all its possibilities in approach, geography, activity or challenge. I will keep 'grabbing' those that seem interesting to explore and reflect upon- seeking the value

How to use stories to influence decision makers

How to use stories to influence decision makers | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it
Leaders are decision-makers. They have to be. As soon as they walk into the office in the morning, they’re bombarded with decisions that have to be made: ‘Can our business partner sell our product in that new market?

Didn't you just love it when your parents, grandparents or other extended family would tell stories about "when they were young" it was so different!? Well, why don't you tell a story about other client experiences with prospective clients? Turn your successes into sales today.

Kevin Watson's curator insight, July 31, 9:14 AM

What a great post from my colleagues over at Anecdote. This one is all about influencing decision makers by exposing them to stories outside their own experiences. 

 

As Shawn Callahan points out, "And of the experiences that get noticed, a few are thought about and translated into a story that explains what happened. Over time, these accumulate into a repertoire of experience-based stories. It is this repertoire that guides intuitive decision-making. To influence a decision-maker, you need to change the stories their intuition relies upon."


He then goes on to give us tips for exactly how to do that. What I also love about Shawn's posts is how often then are based on solid research. At the bottom of the post you will find all the citations cited in the article. Yay! So we are talking hard science, not spouting platitudes. We need more of this kind of writing.


Thanks Shawn.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, May 7, 4:22 PM

Big companies do not easily reinvent themselves as leading innovators. Too many fixed routines and cultural factors can get in the way. For those that do make the attempt, innovation excellence is often built in a multiyear effort that touches most, if not all, parts of the organization.


Research suggest that any company looking to make this journey will maximize its probability of success by closely studying and appropriately assimilating the leading practices of high-performing innovators. Taken together, these form an essential operating system for innovation within a company’s organizational structure and culture.
