  • A Definition of Innovation
    Often worshiped as a “myth” or “taboo” innovation still deserves a
    simple definition.
    Creating new
    VALUE
    using/utilizing
    existing/available
    KNOWLEDGE.
  • 6. Innovation and Enterpreneurship
    • The who has the will, means and ways to manage the conversion of knowledge into value is an enterpreneur.
    • 7. Market is where value is converted into other forms of value.
    • 8. Value is a perception and highly context dependent. Hence innovation is a dynamic process.
    • 9. Innovation involves acquisition/processing of knowledge.
    Knowledge (not necessarily technical or scientific) is the main barrier to/frontier of innovation.

  • 11. Our Ecosystem of Innovation
    • KNOWLEDGE – RESEARCHERS : highly motivated to publish, low motivation for research projects, often on own devices to pursue business, lured to easy cash from consultancy (corporate researcher is a difficult carreer choice)
    • 12. OPPORTUNITY – BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT : Almost always focused on immediate opportunity, more of a follower’s attitude
    • 13. VALUE – DEVELOPMENT/PRODUCTION/SALES : Strongest component of the eco-system. Often top skills and top innovators around.
    • 14. EQUITY – OWNERS, INVESTORS, BANKER : Strongly conservative, often orthodox non-believers in innovation, often believe what they see on paper in numbers.
  • Innovation Dynamics
    Knowledge is GLOBAL, value is LOCAL
  • 15. Innovation Dynamics
    Intrapreneurial Company is the Future
    Organizational skills to adopt new ideas
    and diversity.
    Intrapreneurship is underrated,
    enterpreneurship is overrated.

  • 22. Cost of Innovation
    • Cost of innovation (rather cost of
    failed innovation) is probably the single
    most important barrier to innovation.
    • Recent tax incentives had limited
    additionality for various reasons.
    • In spite of “unlimited” supply of youth,
    talent and skills are limited.
    • Investment in skills is extremely limited
    and conservative.
