I attended the Academy of Management Annual Meeting (and conference and symposium) a couple of weeks ago in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia.

Those who've participated in this chat for awhile know of my proclivity to focus in on the nuances of word meaning and to insist that we get on the same page, so to speak, before we waste our 140 characters talking past each other by using different meanings of the same word. 

It's not that I want everyone to use the same meanings. No, everyone's entitled to their interpretation of what a word means. But unless a meaning can be agreed upon, even if it's just for a conversation or a particular project, communication and more importantly, collabration an't happen.

Innovators as athletes

For the last two weeks, about 4500 athletes have been competing in and around Glasgow in Scotland, UK during the Commonwealth Games (#Glasgow2014). In the 71 nations and territories involved, their performances have been covered and reported at length, and outstanding stories have been included in the news bulletins.

But what makes this happen? Who enables these athletes to perform? And what does this have to do with innovation?!
