Every Idea Can't Be a Good Idea (transcription)

Every Idea Can't Be a Good Idea (transcription) | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

The other day I was at Mohegan Sun, which is a casino about an hour and a half outside of Boston. And while I’m there I love to speak with the gamblers because each of them believe they have a system. They believe they have a method to ensure that they win. And they’re all convinced they’ve won more money than they’ve lost.

The Evolution Of Innovation And The Rule Of Punctuated Equilibrium

The Evolution Of Innovation And The Rule Of Punctuated Equilibrium | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
A common mantra of the life sciences industry can be captured in a one word—innovate.

To survive in today's hostile world, a company must out-think and out-innovate the competition. And out of that wet, murky reality crawled the new pharma life form called the accelerator. Born, generally with a spine of convection, this new and evolved creature emerges with its "fight or flight" response transferred to the techno-limbic desire of "innovate or die." However, this mission of innovation seems to overtake the process itself, leaving pharma to drive innovation in almost every corner of corporate headquarters. How far off can a blockchain cafeteria be?

How Russia became a breeding ground for cryptocurrency innovation

How Russia became a breeding ground for cryptocurrency innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Cryptocurrency has found support all over the world. It is popular as a solution for common business problems in many industries, but also allows people to invest and speculate as they would with stocks. For both reasons, companies and individuals around the globe are motivated to participate in cryptocurrency, but when this adoption reaches a certain point, governments step in to have their say. This makes perfect sense, as there are no other entities with such a significant stake in the status quo.

The Future Of Creativity & A New Challenge

The Future Of Creativity & A New Challenge | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
At this point, “design is a competitive advantage” is an understatement. As new interfaces transform the way we work and live, designers, and creatives of all kind, have become central to companies and movements, big and small, across all industries. We take for granted that, just a few decades ago, very little of today’s creativity was possible.

Will Entrepreneurs Reinvent Banks In The Future?

Will Entrepreneurs Reinvent Banks In The Future? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
No industry screams “legacy” more than banking -- but a disruption might be coming.

I remember a time when the boldest entrepreneurs would cringe in horror if you suggested they try to build a car. In the last century, that was a very expensive way to fail. Elon Musk has succeeded with Tesla because he took a technological leap when the major automakers weren’t willing to.

Where Retail Technology Needs To Go Now

Where Retail Technology Needs To Go Now | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
There are a lot of ideas around about where retail technology needs go and most of them are good. But until now, very few of them were going to do what retailers need most: give consumers a great reason to go back into stores.  Now, there are ideas emerging and developing that will be highly impactful. These new ideas and software will affect almost every in-store experience in the future, they will change what it means to go to a store and they will make store experiences more worthwhile than ever.

Too Many Experts Can Hurt Your Innovation Projects

Too Many Experts Can Hurt Your Innovation Projects | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
If you need an appendectomy, call a surgeon. But if you’re seeking a CEO for a surgical device company, an MD may not be your best choice.

To be sure, entrepreneurs in highly specialized and technical industries need the knowledge that only users (doctors, lawyers, engineers, and the like) can provide. Doctors understand what other doctors will value in a new product; lawyers know what other lawyers need. But you can have too much of a good thing — including input from such experts. In fact, my colleagues and I have found that innovation thrives when expert users make up about 40% of an invention team. Any less and the company will lose sight of what its customers need; any more and the group will tend to converge on old ideas.

Preventing deforestation might be expensive, but it will cost us more if we don't | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Forests don’t get a lot of credit in the fight against climate change. Left alone, they soak up a huge volume of carbon from the atmosphere. They are what scientists call a “carbon sink.” But, when people burn down forests to clear land for farming or grazing, those trees become a liability, bleeding their vast stores of carbon into the atmosphere.
