Jumping to a fresh cycle of innovation design

Paul Hobcraft

I have argued in the past that innovation management needs to radically adjust and needs to be designed differently, it needs to be highly adaptive. I’d like to offer some views, partly looking out to the future, partly considering what is potentially within our grasp, if we step back and rethink innovation design. The need to have a new cycle of innovative design. We design the innovation system we need after we know what we are trying to achieve in the challenge or idea.

Technological Revolutions and the Governance Gap

Tim Kastelle

As technology races ahead, the norms and institutions that we need to support (or contain) it lag behind. When technology is changing rapidly, the fact that norms, managerial practice, institutions and cultures change at a much different pace creates substantial problems.

Designing for Harmony

Boxes and Arrows

By using these nascent user-centered design methods, they were able to meet the expanding needs of their user base and claim over 90% of the small business accounting software market. This expanded the offerings but created a fragmented company where each product had its own division with separate management, design, and–in some cases—offices. A noticeable lack of focus prevented them from innovating as a company; their user-centered design DNA was disappearing.

Think Your Company’s Pursuit of Innovation has Run its Course? Think Again…

Qmarkets

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the last 10 years of technological advancements, it’s that humanity’s potential for enhancement, modification, deviation, and then reinvention, is categorically unfathomable. Of course, we’ve developed new materials and designs, but the mechanical structure has remained the same – until now. What they created is a wheel with three uniquely designed spokes connected to a hub in the middle.

Optimism in Innovation, Thinking About Risk Differently

Paul Hobcraft

Of course, the more you invest in innovation, the likely the risks will increase. I have called this the “ new innovation era ” where technology is underpinning so much of innovation’s activity and outcomes. It simply has to be, coming from technology connecting up our networks and the growing technology options we have to integrate within our business. Combining technology and innovation gives me real optimism for innovation, does it for you?

Of course, context is going to be fluid as it builds out its related content. It is recognizing the semantic technologies part that will deliver cognitive solutions that have the real value. How does Knowledge Graphs fit within our need to communicate in new, visually exciting ways? Let me provide a short narrative to give this a meaning and why it is becoming so important.

We are in the middle of it, some of you may not have noticed its impact and change but it is significant on the understanding of innovation, in it’s future design. Of course, this shift requires really big changes in strategy, operations, the organization and in each individuals orientation.

What UX Designers Need to Know about Conversion Rate Optimization

Boxes and Arrows

The real problem many organizations face regarding conversion, is that content is often still considered “the stuff that goes into the design.” Putting content at center stage means changing some of the fundamental ways we think about content in the design process and how it helps conversion. There’s an old term in technical communication that refers to what happens when technological innovations force workers to re-skill: technoshock. And it’s free, of course.

Shifting our thinking within the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Paul Hobcraft

It was nicely put by Joe Kaeser, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Siemens AG writing an article for the WEF , where he remarked “ The Fourth Industrial Revolution is not just about technology or business. He was commenting more specifically about the breakthrough of the “digital twin” that can allow us to design, simulate and test sophisticated products in the virtual domain before even taking them into a first physical prototype or even setting them up in the physical world.

Creating the Industrial Ecosystem

The day before the main event I was included in the Industry Analysts visit to the Siemens Technology Center, at Neuperlach in Munich. We were provided a variety of insights in different presentations and demonstrations, of the technology they are working upon. The time spent in the Siemens Technology Centre was far too short, in getting the depth I would have liked. Thankfully the trigger was on my visit to their technology center.

Innovation System Thinking on a Sunday! What, no roast or glass of wine? Later.

Paul Hobcraft

Of course, this greatly depends on what I am working on, for others and, or for myself. The practice of lean thinking, design thinking, visual thinking have increasingly started to dominate our “innovation thinking.” If we start looking through these archetypes as lenses we might begin to ‘flesh out’ the needs to think through when we look at a whole system design for innovation. We all spend our Sundays in different ways.

It was showcased in the technology center, briefly, as part of a broader set of presentations. Of course, you can question what is the “right” knowledge?

Relating to the New Innovation Era

Paul Hobcraft

When you step back and recognize all the different advancements we have making in designing tools and frameworks, in understanding innovation, it holds promise. Of course, much of what we have will still remain. The sad part is that many of our existing consulting firms offer solutions that are unfit for todays need or ill-equipped for offering advice on tomorrow’s purpose and the designs necessary. Can we go that route in our organization design?

Managing Energy Transition through Innovation

Paul Hobcraft

From this agreement as such, it has been the catalyst to charting a new course in the global climate effort. The critical enabler will come from technology and systemic innovation. Innovation needs to be broader than just being conducted through technological research and development; it requires a more significant integrated innovation model that has business models, policies, processes, and market design as part of the solutions.

What is design thinking and how can it help you innovate?

Never Delegate Understanding

Tim Kastelle

There’s no easy answer to this question – but if we’re trying to design changes in the way our organisations work, we need to have a deep understanding of what’s going on in them. Design thinking in business is a hot topic right now (see the excellent cover story of the current issue of Harvard Business Review by Tim Brown and Roger Martin for an example).

Reducing the friction around innovation

Paul Hobcraft

Technological risks to information, from hacking to cybercrime and privacy concerns to identity theft are on the rise. The Innovation Perspective view here is this : Innovation suffers from a lack of automating the innovation process, something I find not just arcane but nonsensical in today’s technologically connected world. Of course, some frictions are by design and are intentionally built into the system.

The backdrop of digital transformation and its consequences

Paul Hobcraft

Digital transformation is doubly difficult, it forces us to work with mostly emerging, constantly evolving technologies, and then apply these in an integrated way into an existing business. Beyond making a series of incremental improvements to become cloud-ready, we are supposed to reflect social, mobile and digital technologies. Thus it is hard to convince those undecided to support this, whether they are just skeptical or lacking technology adroitness.
