Bad experiences can leverage innovation

Bad experiences can leverage innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

The belief that the financial model, developed in today’s world, does not work has propagated and something must be done to solve the problem.

I’m not an expert on the subject but it seems to me that the problems cannot be solved by the same people who created them, under the penalty of becoming in the wonderful path of confirmation bias where all solutions found are hiding the source of the problem.

Give a Team an Idea and They’ll Innovate Today

Give a Team an Idea and They’ll Innovate Today | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

There are a number of old, tired sayings that actually create a tremendous amount of insight when considered in a new light. Perhaps no phrase is as hackneyed as “give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” While probably true, the phrase has been overused and misused. However, I think considering this phrase in a slightly different context could shed new light on a subject near and dear to my heart – innovation.

Where the Innovators Are

Where the Innovators Are | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Patent data is a rough but imperfect proxy for innovation; patents are often owned by large corporations or universities rather than individual inventors. But regional patent data does point toward areas of high intellectual productivity, and it's safe to assume that some of those patents flow from start-up companies.

Breakthroughs Don't Pay: Excerpt from Sidestep and Twist

Breakthroughs Don't Pay: Excerpt from Sidestep and Twist | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

One of the greatest myths of our time is this: if you create something original, something that’s genuinely a breakthrough, you have a better than average chance of getting rich. For most businesses and most entrepreneurs, this notion is something of a fantasy. If you think back over the great corporate successes of the last two or so decades, you’ll find a striking absence of any great breakthroughs significant enough in themselves to create huge wealth. On the other hand, many endeavours that have become hits are at best incremental improvements of other things.

There is a lot written and talked about vectors of and tools for innovation – knowledge, partnership, venturing, crowd sourcing – in short the bones and muscles to make innovation work. However, there is another, “softer” aspect of innovation, the climate, the expectations, the emotions, net the cultural context in which innovation will flourish – or not.

Collaboration is the answer to systemic complexity

A series of recent announcements by the Big Three EDA vendors and their well-known partners from across the disaggregated SoC ecosystem is lending new credence to the impact of collaboration.

While IDMs such as Apple, Intel, Samsung and IBM continue to blaze their own trail, developing in-house tools, methodologies, processes and chips, fabless companies working with foundries and tools developers are beginning to show some of the same benefits for a much lower cost.
