We are setting up for a series of chats on the sources of innovative opportunity. Last week, as a prelude to the series, we discussed "ideas". However, before discussing the seven (more reliable) sources of innovative opportunity, there are a few other topics that set the scene and provide the context for consideration of opportunities.

Many people think that ideas are the main source of opportunities for innovation. I disagree and I'm in good company, because so did Peter Drucker! In his 1985 book, "Innovation and Entrepreneurship", he wrote a whole chapter on ideas, actually on "The Bright Idea". However it is a very short chapter and he clearly describes that, while ideas are not to be dismissed or discouraged as a source of opportunity, they are an unreliable source.
