Mystical guidelines for creating great user experiences

Boxes and Arrows

Finally, we’re taught that the Creator desires our prayers beseeching Him to change our reality, similar to how we’ve come to understand the most potent consideration is user feedback on the fully operational product. In a simple sense, this can be likened to the “agile” feedback loop where learnings from one round of production are used to influence and improve our approach to the next round.

Agility and Anticipation, a Tale of Two Business Strategies 

Daniel Burrus

Chances are, you act quickly and decisively to address the changing factors and conditions. In short, you use agility to change directions and head the competition off at the pass. Put them in context with the concept of agility. Agility doesn’t allow you to innovate and jump ahead of the competition.

Network Operating Model: How To Design, Build & Embed An Agile Operating Platform Geared For Mounting Complexity & Rapid Change…

The Future Shapers

The thrust of the book focused on the creation of a Dual Operating System designed to handle today’s business-as-usual in a traditionally efficient (hierarchical) way, while at the same time operating a parallel highly agile and innovation-friendly structure wired to capitalise on tomorrows future opportunities. I have been privileged to work in complex and challenging change environments across a range of industry and consulting roles. Setting The Scene.

Fusion, Flow and Fluidity are needed in our Management Practices

Paul Hobcraft

We lack the agility and flexibility to respond to what this all means in both its implications and potential, for sensing and seizing new value creation from understanding this. One real need is for increasing knowledge and then being equipped in interpreting this in our learning, daily routines and activities is becoming paramount to break out of a declining performance cycle. Let me build this out in why we need to change the way we gain knowledge and translate this.

Applying the Three Horizon Thinking to a Fresh Perspective of Innovation Design

Paul Hobcraft

Using the 3H you have to have a ‘reasonable’ framing intent, those essential guidelines that can provide “ the Wireframe “ (a concept taken from thinking about a UX backbone) for establishing the basic design and activity process. Can we find ways to be highly adaptable, agile and fluid in grabbing and taking the parts of the innovation system and constructing them into that design and process that works for that specific challenge? It adjusts and you learn.

Organizations suffer constantly from unhealthy Innovation tension

Often we forget to reinforce the very design within our organizational structures, we leave role structures incomplete and uncertain, or we always seem to be changing them, before they have had any real chance to ‘form and storm.’

Why we should focus on Innovation Governance

Paul Hobcraft

In any prototyping or learning stage we can move knowledge understanding along but to keep believing and pushing is simply hard. Governance always has guidelines and measurements, I would argue these need to be sensible and adaptive , not just restrictive and prescriptive.

What’s New in Corporate Innovation – Dec 18, 2017

Imaginatik

Bersin is quick to mention ‘learning agility’ a very powerful phrase used by psychologists to describe your ability to rapidly learn new things. This article discusses the need to put the citizens, rather than the technology, at the core of the requisite changes. However, much like ‘innovating from the core’ within an enterprise, in order for cities to access the best data to drive positive change, they need to be people focused or ‘citizen-centric’.

How to Suck at Winning

The Human Factor

Suck: Don’t pause at the start of important meetings to set an agenda, agree on the desired outcome, or establish guidelines for how everyone in the room will work together to achieve it. Don’t purposefully change your perspective, challenge your assumptions, or learn to see the world in new and different ways. And whatever you do, don’t take the time to learn about how your brain is wired to think and make decisions in ways that often don’t support winning.

Treating Innovation Risk Differently, Dealing with Uncertainty

Paul Hobcraft

Innovation is a learning process not to be confused with a safety procedure, both can be effectively managed and different in their treatment. No new business model or innovation new to the market, or even service enhancement, is perfect from its inception, it improves with learning on what is valuable and needed, what can be ‘dampened’ down, switched off or reduced through market exposure. We need to open up our thinking about risk and innovation management.

70:20:10 Rule of Innovation

ITONICS

The origin of the model does not come from Innovation research; it comes from the theory of learning. It says you learn 70% of the things from doing tough jobs by yourself, 20% of learning comes from people you work with, and 10% from courses and reading. Also, transformational projects are easier to implement in a sense that change is required to achieve it. Do not forget about the agility; the 70:20:10 principle is a rule of thumb, not a rigid model.

Finding the Advantage in Regulation

Daniel Burrus

By learning how to accurately anticipate much of the future before it happens, you can accelerate innovation and competitive advantage. In addition, many new regulations have a form of funding, either in money or tax incentives, to encourage the underlying change the regulation is seeking. Thanks to the increasing speed of transformational changes driven by exponential technologies, new legislation and regulation will be needed. Over time, however, that began to change.
