My day @ the ILO Institute…

Never heard of it? I hadn’t either… It’s called the Institute for Innovation in Large Organizations, led by a gent by the name of Peter Temes.  His mission is to help us large multi-headed hydra-type organizations to get out of the way of ourselves and do something new – innovate in new ways, recognize when we are innovating and not detecting it, and how to sustain innovation by making it part of your process.

There’s a part of me that wants to reject this idea. That we (companies) should all be Apple, and “get it” – but let’s face it, it’s not in everyone’s business model right now to sustain innovative thinking, but increasingly critical to our success.

Today they had Lawrence Lessig in to talk about the distorting effects of lobbyists on innovation.   Here’s a link to one of his talks. It’s provoking stuff. In person btw, I found him to be very even handed and thoughtful – he does think in gray, not black & white.
