Esta semana ao andar por aí li alguns artigos interessantes e de alguns deixo aqui rasto.
The Games Of Innovation
“In a comment to my recent Are Engineers Really Good For Innovation? blog post, Paul Hobcraft made a great reference to an article by Patrick Lambe he had read some years ago. The article is about the concerns on the engineer dominated mindset within innovation. Paul gave us this piece from Lambe’s article.
“When it comes to innovation, let’s consider the analogy of two games.
Golf is an engineer’s game. It’s a problem-solving game. You have a problem, the hole, and in theory, getting your ball into the hole is entirely calculable: if you can measure the wind speed, the atmospherics, the inclines and friction of the surface, and if you can control the weight, angle and velocity of the swing, you’ll solve your problem….”

As Brad, I love analogies too. In a bottle of wine whats crucial: The bottle, the wine or the cork? I can´t say wich one is crucial! Which part of the complete innovation process are the engineers? The bottle, the wine..?
I think the most important part of that process are the people and their attitudes. Let’s play tennis!
Greg said” HR managers hires or fires the wrong person – no big deal”. It’s not true! Imagine if it is Mike Ryschkewitsch NASA Chief Engineer!!
The moments and people are crucial for Open Innovation, no matter their education. We just need to choose the best options. Sometimes Engineers are good, sometimes not!

“…Overcoming the fear of change is a key objective for innovative leaders. They will need to take this issue head-on. They must engage people in a dialogue and discuss the risks and benefits of standing still or of innovating. The types of messages they strive to convey are:
We are doing well right now but we need to do better….”
José Baldaia said…
Good examples should be followed, but the history of each individual can also help to accept and even promote change.
If each one of us does an analysis on how many “small large steps” already taken, you will find certainly positive signs of change.
Even when we see situations less good we find reasons to say: “What if I did it in a different way?” These questions may be used to believe that change can be good, especially because, with the experience we built wisdom.
Just as a father or a mother “tries” to keep up with growth, new customs and habits of their children, a leader must be aware and monitor their employees, customers or partners, and as a leader, he must promote change every time the environment where it operates requires it , (egg, Environment, Social Responsibility, etc.).
It is good to remember “When it comes to innovation, trust your intuition.”

Um slide onde se procura identificar a Inteligência competitiva que eu comentei:

Este conjunto de slides tem muitos pontos de reflexão e muitas orientações (pragmáticas) úteis. No entanto se a mensagem deixada não reflectisse basicamente a lógica e a análise seria, penso, mais eficaz quando pensámos em inovação.
A IBM rejeitou ao Sr. Chester Carlson o “Xerography”, a Decca Records negou aos Beatles a sua produção! Faltou um pouco de intuição!
Estou de acordo com Paul Sloane: “No que toca a Inovação, confia na Intuição”!
