I really enjoyed watching “The Culture of Innovation” from MIT Technology Review.
The talk covers several interesting topics worth exploring.
Permission less innovation and Innovation at the edges
A culture of practice over theory
The concept of Social Investing
Connectivity in Communities
Peripheral vision and Pattern Recognition and how they are the total opposite of focus and execution
Cultures and sub-cultures
My favorite quote from the talk:
We so cherish focus, execution and they are the opposites of peripheral vision, pattern recognition
Peripheral vision and pattern recognition lead to discovering new ways of doing things.
