This week's topic of co-creation and its contribution to innovation is chosen and framed by our guest Derek Miers, @bpmfocus. He is a frequent participant in #innochat ("innocat") who specialises in enabling and facilitating organizations, teams, and individuals to co-create at Structure Talent.
#Innochat is no stranger to the BIF Summit. There've been many pre-Summit, live-Summit, and post-Summit chats. This chat will be a post-Summit discussion of takeaways from BIF2016. This will be another free-form chat!
At BIF2016, 500 people will gather together in a historic theater to hear 15-minute stories of transformation by 32 people from many different industries and sectors. The speakers tell the story of their creative process, their struggles, and where they're going in the future.

This week’s guest says: “management accounting is the engineering of a business”. This is particularly relevant to innovation in this era, because our understanding of innovation is increasing and this is causing many businesses to change their business models.

Innovation is not what it once was! On the other hand, maybe innovation has not yet come of age. Let's discuss a question raised by Ken Gordon on the #innochat facebook group (if you are not a member of the group, please apply and we'll approve your membership asap!)

Where does the innovation rubber meet the road? A recent article identifies an important aspect of innovation, based on the example of a significant move in decades of rivalry between ARM and Intel for chips for mobile systems. During this #innochat, let's discuss the contrast between hype and reality.
I am back! as a moderator for the Aug. 18 chat. The topic is questions, specifically, how and why innovators are better off looking for questions than looking for answers.
This will be a spirited, free-form discussion, similar to last week's chat. All views are welcome. I clearly come down on the side of questions. I'd love to hear more thought on this view, and also hear the thoughts of people who favor a looking-for-answers approach.

This week Ogilvy & Mather, @Ogilvy, shut down Ogilvy Labs, @OgilvyLabs. Laboratories for innovation, set up by a variety of organizations to increase innovation activity, generate plenty of interest and support. But what are they for, how do they operate, and how do they perform? Let's discuss innovation labs, their purpose, and their performance, during #innochat at 12 noon Eastern time on Thursday August 11.

Visionaries are motivated by a vision of the future that almost no-one else has "seen" yet. In most cases, they have not even seen it themselves, at least not physically. They believe it first and see it later. This week, let's have a free-wheeling discussion (without prepared questions) about the role of visionaries in innovation.
