What are the four Cs to driving successful innovation? Innovation Labs Asia's MD Scott Bales speaks

Disruption and innovation are more than just buzzwords in the tech world; they are the fuel that will power the engine of the modern economy.

In only a few years, the digital tsunami has laid waste to traditional businesses such as bookstores, entertainment retail companies, electronic stores, fashion retail, and any other sectors that were too slow to catch up. Even the great stalwarts of our economy such as banks are waking up to a reality of a world where conglomerates will have to work with startups or risk alienating a significant user base, missing out a huge revenue stream as a result.

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’.

Do we share an entrepreneurial spirit across Europe or are we hidebound by contrapreneurs?

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.
