A (Hopefully not Too Self-Conscious) Conversation about Self-Consciousness and Innovation
This week's innochat in hosted and framing post provided by Ken Gordon.
Last week, on the #innochat Facebook page, Joshua Gutoff, @jgutoff, raised the question of how “self-consciousness” and “authenticity” do—or can or might—affect people aiming to innovate. But that wasn’t enough! On Thursday, November 3, at 12 noon ET, Gutoff—who directs the MA program in Jewish Education at Gratz College—will, along with Ken Gordon, @quickmuse, lead a lively conversation on this provocative topic. Join us, innocats… and do what you can to keep it real!

Effective innovation requires effective communication. We discussed what information is required to be communicated, by whom, and when, during our #innochat discussion last week on “Innovation communication”. This week, let's discuss the benefits of available communication facilities inspired by @Brightidea's #Synthesize conference and the cases and results reported there.

In any organisation which innovates effectively, decisions are being made about the focus of attention and the allocation of resources in pursuit of innovative developments. This involves information being communicated effectively.
What aspects of communication are important to innovation within an organization?
Let's consider what we can learn from a specific industry which applies human minds to the discovery, development and commercialisation of concepts, ideas, and opportunities. This might help us to clarify the role of innovation and to describe its relationship with value and money.

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.
