For this chat we will discuss insights I'll share from the Chief Innovation Officer Summit. The event will be next Tuesday and Wednesday in New York, and features speakers from top companies, such as NASA, GE, Samsung, MetLife, and NBCuniversal. Some sepakers are CINOs and some are CEOs or strategy executives.

I'm hoping to find out more about:

After a couple of weeks talking about the positive side of innovation (ideas, opportunities, etc), in this chat we'll talk about a big roadblock to innovation: existing laws and regulations.

In case you missed, this past week was a little…disrupted (yeah, I said it)…in the world of innovation. Jill Lepore, the David Woods Kemper ’41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and staff writer at The New Yorker wrote a piece which was less-than-glowing about disruptive innovation. To call it a tear down might be over-selling it, but only just. At the least it was another kind of PDA (public display of animosity).

'Disrupt' is a Verb!

The idea of disruption in innovation has its roots in academia with the late-90s publication of The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen, a Harvard Business School professor.

Let's Play #Disruptus!

As usual, last week's World Innovation Forum (see tweets at #wifny) presented a smorgasboard of new ideas on innovation. One that struck me in particular was the focus on the concept of disruption not so much as an academic idea, as it originally appeared in Clayton Christensen's The Innovator's Dilemma, but as a fundamental concept of innovation that we should all master, and master very quickly, if we want to keep up with the rapid pace of change and, well, disruption in this world.

I'll focus two different #innochats on this notion of the evolution of disruption. In the first one we will play online the wonderful new game called Disruptus that was created by Julien Sharp of Funnybone Toys (@JulienSharp). I'll admit, I was prepared to be skeptical when I met Julien in New York the day before the conference for a demonstration of the game, but when she explained how it works, I fell in love with it. She's onto something, for sure!
