Experiment on the organization the same way you would on a product. Test different variations of your organization adapted to lean and vice versa. Innovation begins with culture, and culture begins with leadership. Leadership determines how authority is distributed within the layers of management, and it’s up to the C-suite to align stakeholder incentives to unlock creativity and rapid innovation. We suggest three strategies for organizational leaders to pursue:

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

Instilling innovation deep into your organization’s culture requires patience, persistence, and a long-term commitment to get it right. Management should work to redefine the behaviors recognized, rewarded, and promoted among employees. Are those behaviors linked to innovation? If not, you may need to refocus values, or perhaps create your own innovation road map to drive and manage the change you seek to create.

Denying the existence of differences between men and women (or boys and girls) was a useful phase we had to go through. It got us to here. Now that the reality of gender has changed, so should our approach. Managers – both male and female – should embrace the differences and get everyone to succeed.

Inca Bridge In Peru

Inca Bridge In Peru | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

The Bridge at Q’eswachaka is made out of grass and is rebuilt annually across the deep canyon of the Apurimac River near Cuzco, Peru. The amazing bridge was part of the Inca pathways enabling the transmission of messages throughout the vast Inca empire by runners. Today the annual bridge replacement takes three days and is performed to preserve the memory of the Peruvian forebears that constructed the first bridge many centuries ago. I have seen bridges like this before but have never walked across one and I’m sure you’d have to have a lot of trust in the construction to make the crossing.

How Startup “Joiners” Are (and Aren’t) Like Founders | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

“Joiners are individuals who are drawn toward startups because they offer greater autonomy and more exciting work activities relative to large firms. But joiners are more interested in technical or functional work activities rather than in managing and building the company. In other words, they want to be part of the entrepreneurial process, but they don’t necessarily want to be ‘the boss.’”

Neuroscientists Find New Brain Network

Neuroscientists Find New Brain Network | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

Humans abound with remarkable skills: we write novels, build bridges, compose symphonies, and even navigate Boston traffic. But despite our mental prowess, we share a surprising deficit: our working memory can track only four items at one time.

 

“Would you buy a computer with a RAM capacity of 4?” asks David Somers, professor and chair of the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences. “Not 4 MB or GB or 4K—just 4. So how the heck do humans do all this stuff?”

 

“There’s so much information out there, and our brains are very limited in what we’re able to process,” adds Samantha Michalka, a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Computational Neuroscience & Neural Technology. “We desperately need attention to function in the world.”

 

Michalka is lead author and Somers is senior author of a new study that sheds light on this enduring mystery of neuroscience: how humans achieve so much with such limited attention. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the work identifies a previously unknown attention network in the brain. It also reveals that our working memory for space and time can recruit our extraordinary visual and auditory processing networks when needed. The research appeared on August 19, 2015, in the journal Neuron.

 

Prior to this work, scientists believed that visual information from the eyes and auditory information from the ears merged before reaching the frontal lobes, where abstract thought occurs. The team of BU scientists, which also included Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory Director Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, performed functional MRI experiments to test the conventional wisdom. The experiments revealed that what was thought to be one large attention network in the frontal lobe is actually two interleaved attention networks, one supporting vision and one supporting hearing. “So instead of talking about a single attention network,” says Somers, “we now need to talk about a visual attention network and an auditory attention network that work together.”

What Your Survival Instincts Know About Pitching Ideas

So you have a big idea—or maybe your team does—and the time has come to put it to the test. Specifically, the test ofThe Pitch, that distressingly concise opportunity to walk into a room with a blueprint, and walk out with a real foundation, be it funding, client sign-off, or even a simple thumbs-up from your boss. But despite the exciting chance to transition your idea from concept to reality, the prospect of having to sell that idea can generate feelings far less pleasant. After all, how the hell do you sell?
