Innovation thinking in Ecosystem and Generative AI design.

Paul Hobcraft

Innovation thinking in Ecosystem and Gen AI design I believe there is a real need to construct a different innovation process. We are rapidly seeing the past of innovating simply in terms of operating on our own. We must question partnerships we have seen work in the past and ask if they are suitable for the future. Innovation is undergoing a radical change, in opening up to technology, collaborative thinking and the value of generative AI thinking.

Made to last

Idea to Value

Over the weekend, we stayed with my parents. For my toddler, they brought out some of the toys they had kept from when I was still a baby. One of the hits was a wooden toy train set which must now be over 40 years old. And my child loved it (although there were significantly more “accidents” than I remember being responsible for).

3 Stubborn Facts That Business Leaders Need To Accept

Digital Tonto

We need to constantly ask ourselves which ideas that are widely accepted today don’t hold water. Every era has its own fictions, things that are accepted because they are repeated, but lack any serious foundation. They become memes replicating themselves throughout the zeitgeist, rarely being questioned. When ideas are repeated often enough, we begin to take them as self-evident and don’t even question them.

How to Self-Promote — Without Sounding Self-Centered

Harvard Business Review

Promoting your own accomplishments can feel uncomfortable, and poses a dilemma: It can make you appear more confident and capable, but can also make you seem less warm, less friendly, and more selfish. On the other hand, self-deprecation or deflecting credit, may make you seem approachable but it diminishes your competency. New research, based on a series of 11 studies, suggests that dual promotion — in which you compliment a colleague or peer while talking about your own accomplishments — can b
