My podcasts are intended to provide a guide to using ReThinking, Innovation, ReInvention and Creative Thinking in organisations of all types and sizes from Micro Enterprises to large conglomerates, private sector, public sector or not for profit. There is something for everyone here. Listeners will be introduced to a range of ideas that fall under the umbrella of Innovation and Creativity but which can help with real business issues. The topics covered will help you solve problems, generate ideas, make decisions, formulate business strategy and engage the stakeholders of your business.
Who are the successful innovators? In this episode, I talk to the entertaining Samuel West, founder of the Museum of Failure. Apart from having tales of who has failed spectacularly, Samuel West answers the question about who is actually good at innovating.
Chaos And Planning
Some believe that you cannot plan creative activities. Simon Raybould and I take the wonderful topics of chaos and planning and weave them into a conversation. Obviously there's a bit more to it than that, but to get the whole story you will need to listen in.
The Future Of Work
The very nature of Innovation means that things will look different. Here I discuss the future of work with Scott McArthur. Listen to discover how our businesses might be organised, what skills we might need and which technologies will become dominant. There's more but you need to listen in!
Innovation Without Tears
Innovation is great and solves many business issues like surviving and beating the competition. It gets overlooked though because some CEOs see too much pain in the way. What if I could highlight some of the potential issues and then we could solve them together? Wouldn't that be great?
Virtual Gardening, Planning But Different
Are you frustrated by traditional methods of planning or creating 'to do' lists? Maybe you find them too restrictive? Its nice to know what you have to do but sometimes the methods of capturing this information seems a little too rigid. Virtual gardening might be the answer you are looking for!
Science Fiction, It’s The Future
People often refer to the fact that Science Fiction becomes reality. It is not that strange as most Science Fiction is not created as a result of a wetted finger held in the breeze or gazing at tea leaves in the bottom of a cup.
It is perfectly possible to predict the future by looking out for 'weak signals'. These are signals, bits of information that are missed by most people who are not experts or who are not able to see patterns.
