From Quantity to Quality: Improving Your Idea-Generation Process

HYPE Innovation

Day in and day out, we’re all coming up with ideas at work and home as we go about routine tasks or during meetings and problem-solving sessions. There’s often a tendency to think that more ideas mean better results. But, typically, this isn’t the case. A focus on generating more, rather than better-quality, ideas might lead to slower decision-making and lower motivation to be creative.

Recognizing the Building Blocks of Innovation

Paul Hobcraft

I finished my last post, “ Are we EVER going to embrace innovation? ” With the argument, we need to change the innovation narrative and significantly update the innovation approach and processes to meet today’s and tomorrow’s business challenges.

Authority Bias: Why we submit to the ideas and orders of others

Idea to Value

Would you ever hurt someone intentionally? What about if someone you respected told you to do it? In some cases, people will believe almost anything someone tells them, if the person telling them appears to have the authority to do so. One of the most dangerous biases in the world might be the Authority Bias. This is the tendency to attribute greater accuracy to the opinion of an authority figure ( unrelated to its content ) and be more influenced by that opinion.

Don’t Trust Your Feelings. They’re Often Triggers That Mislead You

Digital Tonto

The neuroscientist Antonio Damasio believes we encode experiences in our bodies as somatic markers and that our emotions often alert us to things that our brains aren’t aware of. Another researcher, Joseph Ledoux, had similar findings. He pointed out that our body reacts much faster than our mind, as when we jump out of the way of an oncoming object and only seconds later realize what happened.

Paul Hobcraft

Why have we not embraced innovation? I will not apologize here; this will partly be a “rant” and then begin to suggest a way forward on embracing innovation fully. I was thinking of having the headline “Innovation as our eternal doom or shame” or “innovation groundhog day” Let me begin in why. I really am fed up with constantly seeing claims that “ innovation is core to our business ” and that we are “ constantly seeking fresh growth ”

Values Always Cost You Something. That’s What Makes Them Different From Platitudes.

Digital Tonto

Values are essential to how an enterprise honors its mission. They represent choices of what an organization will and will not do, what it rewards and what it punishes and how it defines success and failure. Perhaps most importantly, values will determine an enterprise’s relationships with other stakeholders, how it collaborates and what it can achieve.

Paul Hobcraft

Developing the innovation stack takes the view that innovation is a series of building blocks stacked on top of each other with different layers to work through. These stacks follow an established logic, such as working through idea discovery, relating to given problems, exploring solutions, and determining the final model or design and the execution delivery to achieve this.

5 Simple Rules That Will Make You A Powerful Communicator

Sometimes the hardest thing is merely to make yourself understood. Things that change the world, or even a small part of it, always arrive out of context because, by definition, the world hasn’t changed yet. That’s why innovators need to be great communicators, because an idea that doesn’t gain traction is an idea that fails. That’s easier said than done.

Why ‘system transformation’ is likely a pipe dream
