[Our guest moderator this week is Graham Hill (@GrahamHill) a frequent participant in #innochat, who leads us as we revisit some moral questions related to innovation. This is the first of a series on this area, the dates of others are to be arranged. Graham's framing post and questions follow, with some background references.]
We had an excellent chat live from #BIF9 about Innovation Competencies, and this week we'll also connect with #BIF9 with the topic, "What We Learned from #BIF9." Those who attended the conference, watched the livestream, and/or participated in the Twitter conversation are welcome to share their learnings.
If you missed all of that, our very own Dr. John W. Lewis (@johnwlewis) went above and beyond the call of duty to create Tweet archives for the #BIF9 hashtag during the Sept. 18-19 event. You can access these (very large!) files via these links:
The Sept. 19 edition of #innochat will be held LIVE at the Trinity Repertory Theater in Providence from 12-1 pm EDT US. #BIF9 participants are welcome to attend, while a video livestream plus the usual Twitter chat will be available online.
The topic: Innovation Competencies - What Do You Need to Know & Do to Innovate?

Management of innovation is a relatively new activity in many organizations. Is there any benefit in copying approaches and techniques which have been effective in another organization? Or must an organization develop its own approaches?

The concept of an innovation team isn't new, and there's been a lot written about it. But in my research, I didn't find anything I'd hold up as a must-have for an innovation team. So let's discuss and see if we can come to consensus.
Here are some questions we could use in the discussion:
Several chats ago, @LoisMarketing (Lois Martin) raised the concept of identifying innovation champions in organizations. If memory serves (and it is a faulty tool at best) the chat topic in which this concept arose was focused on making the most out of our connections. Connections, networks and the role of key nodes in networks has been a topic we have explored on many occasions here at #innochat. The power of those key nodes, or innovation champions is something we will explore this week.
