I have a confession to make…

Dear planet, it’s beena while since my last confession. Actually, I have never made a confession as the motivation has never been as strong as now… I have not posted anything on this blog for last two months as I’m grappling with some reasoning about certain aspects of our modern e[...]

Sidney Bernic: In memory of a great man

Sidney was an incredible man with many strong views on the world. I’ve included two short video extracts from his presentation at our Realities of Innovation Conference held in 2004. In the first video he presents his view on “vision”. The second video is about his approach to pass[...]

Making the case for Social Based Innovation

I’ve been discussion many concepts relating to innovation over the last few years. But kept the development of our new approach under wraps as we are testing some of the constructs. So, let me give you a sniplet of what’s been going on. Working globally with financial services, manufactu[...]

Situation traps and other mental phenomena

I came across Adizes’s work some 10 years ago. The concepts he promoted made sense and I started reading his work extensively. After buying 8 videos from the Adizes Institute and working through these over time, I got to understand his views. In 1999 he published “Managing Corporate Life[...]

Do we read to much, and think too little?

Things you need to start doing: I started focusing on reading snippets instead of entire books… I started to listen to interpretation instead of believing dogma… I started to synthesize instead of taking reasoning for granted… I started to formulate and write about my own views mor[...]

An emergent view on Design Oriented Innovation

The “design oriented innovation” approach impacts innovative organizations in many ways. Design by definition refers to the process of creating new artefacts, processes, organizations and even the act of creative activity is included in the typical definition. It does however play an imp[...]

Why somewhere? One of today’s key thinking patterns (in strategic innovation and oth[...]

Cycles of convergence and divergence

There are cycles of convergence and divergence in the computer, consumer electronics, media and other industries that are confusing the general understanding of “convergence”. Convergence is seen as the act of adding more and more features to a particular class of product to the point wh[...]

Reframing, reconfiguration and the road to co-production

Richard Normann wrote a landmark book in the 90’s called Reframing Business. It had a profound impact on my thinking about business and on others like C.K. Prahalad that seems to be an avid follower of his philosophies. Much of his work is based on social sciences where the power of the indivi[...]

The tomorrow of today is never the same as the today of tomorrow

Our views change as we travel through time. These views are based on our understanding of the world; the way we perceive the current environment, our memories of recent and distant experiences, and our ability to predict the future. There is an intricate relationship between these dimensions that ma[...]

Reframing and radicals

Reasoning about the world in a way that fits your own personal context is a basic and very human phenomenon. This means that we reason about our existence in the context of our setting. Our setting is the culture, social, and norms that influence our day-to-day operational view. My view is that inno[...]
