The Technium: The Shirky Principle

The Technium: The Shirky Principle | Innovation Cultures | Scoop.it

I think this observation is brilliant. It reminds me of the clarity of the Peter Principle, which says that a person in an organization will be promoted to the level of their incompetence. At which point their past achievements will prevent them from being fired, but their incompetence at this new level will prevent them from being promoted again, so they stagnate in their incompetence.

Don’t Dictate a Culture of Innovation – Influence It!

Don’t Dictate a Culture of Innovation – Influence It! | Innovation Cultures | Scoop.it

Innovation is a 21st Century imperative and organisations, which fail to innovate, will suffer or even perish. So my challenge to CEO’s is simply this. Get with it! Take ownership of the innovation challenge, plan it, map it, drive its implementation and influence the culture until innovation infuses your entire organisation. The first step is to accept that you can’t dictate a culture of innovation, you have to influence it. And this means creating the culture and the conditions for innovation to take hold. And that culture will invariably be a different one than currently exists within your organisation.

A nice tale, the family at the bear hunt, and a nice picture to support the main issue of this post, to convince organizations that innovation is as important to be attained as a serious and threatening question.

Learning From Innovation Hubs: Fluidity, Serendipity, and Community Combined | Innovation Management | Innovation Cultures | Scoop.it
If you live in a major city or a national capital, try this exercise: Google the words “innovation hub” and the name of your metropolis, and scroll through the first results page. As one might expect, you will probably come across a news article or blog post that talks about your city’s or region’s innovation landscape as a whole, using the common broad understanding of an innovation hub as a wider geography (like Silicon Valley). But these days, you are just as likely to find results that point
