Digital disruption on the farm | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

INNOVATION is a word that brings to mind small, nimble startups doing clever things with cutting-edge technology. But it is also vital in large, long-established industries—and they do not come much larger or older than agriculture. Farmers can be among the most hidebound of managers, so it is no surprise that they are nervous about a new idea called prescriptive planting, which is set to disrupt their business.

The Hidden Innovation Barriers: Company Culture and your Brain | Innovation Management | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When you ask Executives what they want beyond short profit and revenue growth they’ll likely say ‘more innovation’. Why? Because they face unprecedented business challenges. Let’s look back. The current modern corporation was invented about 100 years ago – at the start of the 20th century. That’s when the big companies were born like the US railroad companies, US Steel, the big banks, IG Farben. Some exist still today (GE).

Michael Gold's curator insight, June 3, 6:40 AM

Perhaps with the shift in ethos coming with the millennial workforce there will be a deeper understanding that innovation is a cultural value that encompasses many different and interdependent conditions. It's ironic that these same thoughts were stated by Mary Parker Follett in "The Creative Experience pub. 1930 when she said: “Through circular response we are creating each other all of the time. . .  ‘I’ can never influence ‘you’ because you have already influenced me.”

I pretty believe in the balance and the clearing function of the market (even it's more lacklustre now)... he really good startup ideas will win and those "widows and orphans" who just joined the train for joining will (?) find their way back to the corporation...

 

Of course, there is a deeper push-pull factor dynamics than simply the hoarding attitude... there is something irresistible to be pulled toward "to be on your own boss" and there is a strong push factor from the corporates through their internal obscure dynamism, the sort of "Herr K. factor" (The castle - Franz Kafka)...
