Inside the Brains of Rebellious Leaders

Inside the Brains of Rebellious Leaders | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Mark Twain called them "corn-pone opinions." Take a path that veers from the norm, and you'll hear from a chorus of naysayers. "That'll never work." "Don't rock the boat." "That's impossible." (Of course, once your idea has been proven to work, they claim to have known it all along.)

Technological innovation is often simply an innovation in how we think about technology

Technological innovation is often simply an innovation in how we think about technology | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
It may slip our notice, but technological innovation is often reducible to an innovation in the marketing and conceptualization of technology. Take Viv, the new personal assistant from the makers of Siri. It promises to simplify the process of ordering pizza or buying cinema tickets, allowing its users to perform such actions via a single voice-operated interface.

So what do we really know about innovation in international development?

So what do we really know about innovation in international development? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation is increasingly popular in international development. The last ten years have seen new initiatives, funds, and pilots aplenty. While some of this involves genuinely novel and experimental approaches, we have also seen — perhaps inevitably — some re-branding, spin and posturing. This has led to a degree of justifiable backlash and cynicism — even the Financial Times weighed in, describing international development as having caught ‘an innovation fever’.

Disruption is not a strategy

Disruption is not a strategy | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
I was at a research lab to talk about commercialization. The presenter put up a slide of some exciting new technologies. The slide’s tagline said these technologies would “disrupt the biomedical industry.” My first thought was that disrupting the biomedical industry–“to interrupt by causing a disturbance” or “to drastically alter or destroy the structure of something”–is probably the exact wrong thing to do to an industry that keeps us alive and healthy.
