Transcript

  • 1. Innovation and the future
  • 2. Predicting the future of innovation is difficult. The following slides will illustrate this…
  • 3. ”Everything that can be invented already has been” // Charles H Duell, head of U.S.Patent Office, 1899
  • 4. ”The development has been so remarkable that we do not expect any further improvements in the future.” // German car manufacturer, 1914
  • 5. ”The telephone is an amazing innovation, but who will ever use it?” // Rutherford B Hayes, American president 1875
  • 6. ”This ’telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communications. The device is inherently of no value to us.” //Western Union, 1876
  • 7. “In the early 1980s AT&T asked McKinsey to estimate how many cellular phones would be in use in the world at the turn of the century. The consultancy … concluded that the total market would be about 900,000. At the time this persuaded AT&T to pull out of the market.” — The Economist, 1999
  • 8. ”There is a world market for about five computers” // Tomas Watson, founder and chairman of IBM, 1943
  • 9. ”It was gigantic and did not look like a camera” // Comment on Hasselblad’s first digital camera prototype developed in 1996
  • 10. All those people who’ve said that we’ve reached the end of development have one thing in common…
  • 11. …They have all been wrong. The optimist has been right.
