China the story of innovation and disruption.

Disruption is all around us; it never seems to go away; it simply appears in a different and often entirely new form. The result is the same; it disrupts what we know and often in how we suddenly need to set about doing it differently. part Image credit Knowledge @ Wharton.

Why we should focus on Innovation Governance

Paul Hobcraft

Be the warning point of change- be that in scope, markets, delays or changes. It encourages agility, adapting, being fluid and dynamic in the way to undergo innovation. I am working with Jeffrey Phillips , a long-term collaborator on “all things concerning innovation.”

Innovating in the midst of chaos and disruption

Jeffrey Phillips

Kipling wasn't writing about new product development, business model change or innovation, but what he is writing is entirely applicable to our situation today - first quarter 2021. The folks who tell us about climate change tell us that what will actually occur is less predictable weather and weather patterns. Perhaps the "normality" of the 70s, 80s, and 90s was unreasonable, and our lives are subject to more change and uncertainty than we'd like to admit.

Innovation requires a more dynamic systematic approach

Paul Hobcraft

Achieving Disruptive Innovation

The Human Factor

Disruptive innovation” seems to be one of the more popular buzzwords in today’s business lexicon. Fast-forward to today, and several years have passed since Apple has come up with a truly disruptive product. It’s hard enough to disrupt an industry once, much less on an ongoing basis. It generally costs less than the disruptive kind, and involves far less risk. Do you want to aim for incremental or disruptive innovation?

Digital Disruption and Your Workforce

Daniel Burrus

In some cases, it’s about identifying opportunities for major digital disruption that you yourself can introduce (think Uber, Kickstarter and other innovations that set entire industries on their ear.). But being anticipatory also means being aware of outside disruptions that may impact you—and how to prepare accordingly. To that end, let’s consider the relationship between digital disruption and the people in your organization. The Continuing Digital Disruption.

Transforming What? Delivering Future Impact

The sharks that prey are arriving a lot earlier now

Paul Hobcraft

Change is all around us, it is accelerating not abating. You often hear of volatile trading conditions, a more complex market and situations changing constantly and moving faster than ever. We do know we need to re-equip ourselves for constant disruption; we are really beginning to see a shift from the classic bell curve into more of a shark fin for adopting change.

Seeking fresh winds and new directions

Paul Hobcraft

When you feel the force of change running through the organization, you tend to have that same sensation, to resist the force with all your energy. Ignoring the power of choice within change is dangerous. When an organization decides to change its culture, set about constructing a different climate or environment so innovation can thrive. So to make change we need context – the understanding of why we need to change and what we need to do with it.

It is highly reliant on manual systems with people often disconnected from the real innovation engagement making decisions on inadequate data or insights. Mashing up for explosive change. The dizzy array of strategic choices will totally disrupt existing business models if they are right in their design. Innovation is caught up in this transformational change.
