This week we have as our guest Harey Briggs (aka. @OBX_Harvey) who recently presented to his local PDMA Chapter on the topic of Brand-driven Product Development. Out of that presentation, which was well-received (of course!), Harvey agreed to use it as a core topic for this week's Innochat. Thanks for putting up your hand Harvey. Now, here's what he has to share on the subject...

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!

Fragility - how do we build/design/innovate systems that are less fragile?

We tend to think that robustness or resilience are the opposites of fragility. Not so!  Lacking adaptability and flexibility, robust systems are often fragile in their own way, and they tend to weaken over time.  Resilient systems resist shocks and may stay functional, but don't improve over time. 

Is the Time Ripe for the Expert Generalist?
