Five practices to sail successfully in the unrelenting waves of disruption | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

The pace and magnitude of disruptive forces crashing against the seawalls of our businesses and personal lives only grow stronger. The power of 1975’s fastest super computer is now captured in a $400 Apple iPhone. A $100 genome will be feasible in the next decade. These and other examples are cited in a 2013 McKinsey&Company report, “Disruptive Technologies: Advances that will transform life, business and the global economy.”

Reflecting on our innovation practices

Reflecting on our innovation practices | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation has been rapidly changing and much of its basics have been swallowed up by some newly defining frameworks that have raced up to the top of the innovation agenda. They have driven much of our thinking and reacting. It is right that we all respond to these but we often forget much of the rest of what innovation needs to be built upon.

Innovation for the Dotcloud Revolution

Innovation for the Dotcloud Revolution | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The 1990s were known for more than the unkempt grunge look in fashion. The dotcom boom reigned supreme as well. Even though dotcommers seemed to take pride in their lack of fashion sense and innovation in the pervasive hoodie and jeans combinations they preferred, this era delivered some of the greatest technology innovations that changed how we see the world.

Innovation In Fear-Based Cultures? Or, why hire lions to be dogs? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Command-and-control, top-down organizations have the most trouble innovating.

In particular, the fearful mindsets that review, align, and sign off on “decks” to be presented to Vice President-level colleagues often edit out the insights and recommendations that have the power to grow the business in new ways.

Change Management and the Structure of Innovation

Change Management and the Structure of Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Often innovation is cast in the minds as a pure product related process. Apple’s iPod to iPhone to iPad, for example, is, perhaps, a perfect reflection of how most people would define innovation. But innovation doesn’t have to be limited to product design and new product ranges. It also encompasses process and structure, where change management techniques and best practice need to be employed.

How To Disrupt Using Reverse Innovation

How To Disrupt Using Reverse Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation is not the same for everyone and can come in many shapes and forms. Which model to choose is often a hard question, but testing and experimenting is a good practice to start with. Today, many companies tend to choose a disruptive model, where they jump in an existing gap at the bottom of the market and make their way up until they replace incumbents. But successful cases of this approach are a rarity rather than common place.

Creative Disruption: Innovation through Intrapreneurship

Creative Disruption:  Innovation through Intrapreneurship | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Businesses are like sharks: if they stop moving they die.

In a traditional team, everyone knows their job and what’s expected of them. This is certainly true of the pit crew of a Formula 1 car team, for example. However, for the team charged with innovating and eliciting change in a fast moving and ambiguous environment, clarity of this order can be counter-productive.
