This week’s question of the week is based on the thoughts of our current Pole Vaulter, 2thinknow.com’s Christopher Hire. He strongly believes that “too many people equate innovation with change alone.” They are wrong. Rather, “[he and his firm believes], innovation is a change to benefit and advance mankind and civilization.” Furthermore, “If it doesn’t do good, if it doesn’t excite and if it’s not contagious, then it’s not innovative. It’s more fried chicken. And more unneeded change.”
Question: Do we need more types fried chicken? Do little iterative changes matter, or should we push for the big ideas all the time? What qualifies as innovative to you…?
We would love to hear what you have to say.
