Successful Innovators Don’t Care About Innovating

Successful Innovators Don’t Care About Innovating | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

Successful innovators care about solving interesting and important problems — innovation is merely a byproduct. If this distinction seems like hair-splitting, it isn’t. The two focuses create vastly different realities.

There’s No Low-Hanging Fruit in Innovation

There’s No Low-Hanging Fruit in Innovation | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it
Innovation efforts often start by looking for quick wins. The problem is that quick wins don't solve tough problems, and solving tough problems is what leads to competitive advantage. We're better off by going after the tough problems first.

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it
In 2013, international migrants sent $413 billion home to families and friends — three times more than the total of global foreign aid (about $135 billion). This money, known as remittances, makes a significant difference in the lives of those receiving it and plays a major role in the economies of many countries. Economist Dilip Ratha describes the promise of these “dollars wrapped with love” and analyzes how they are stifled by practical and regulatory obstacles.

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it
Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).

 

I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.

 

In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.

Managers need to recognise that not all of the best work is done in teams and through collaboration. Personal knowledge development is so often overlooked.

The Freelance Economy Still Runs on Word of Mouth

The Freelance Economy Still Runs on Word of Mouth | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

We may well be entering a new age of work, in which tasks can be sliced into bite-sized chunks and allotted online to freelancers all over the planet. But we’re not quite there yet, according to a new survey conducted for MBO Partners, which provides back-office services to independent workers — which it dubs “solopreneurs.” Independent workers still get the vast majority of their assignments through the old-fashioned channel of word of mouth, and this is even more pronounced for the most successful among them.
