  4. 4. By humans, for humans From individual stories to in depth business expertise, the many dimensions of personalities shape new dynamics in business and customers relationships. ! The complexity of interactions might help regenerate commercial approaches, yet structural as well as strategic choices are required to create a constructive dialogue anticipating rather than reacting to changes. ! Global innovation efforts have given birth to highly emotional and connected social platforms that provide an open space for communities to redefine innovation, as they wish it could be. “Under what conditions could such positioning be profitable to businesses, employees and customers?”

  12. 12. Does innovation have borders? Despite growing evidence that cooperation across borders in defined sectors and areas would be an asset for innovation, international relations prove unable to properly integrate diversity as a creative value. ! While questioning the social, political and economic drivers that could help assemble smart ideas from differences and synergies, experts highlight a necessity to rethink our priorities, and among them, the collaborative direction which should support our common sense of shared meaningfulness. ! There is no question about the digital turn our innovation developments are taking. In this highly pressured environment, change makers would be inspired to concentrate on one key question: do we fully understand the limits of our innovation capabilities , and if so, how can we innovate beyond those borders to make the most of the “exponential everything” ahead of us?
  13. 13. The issue with diversity Beyond the diversity issue, there are human questions and worries we still haven’t answered, or at least not crisply enough to reduce emotional impacts of change. The “worries”, “fears” against “invaders” highlight a need to better coordinate innovation from people, by people and to people. ! More precisely, collaboratively shaping an environment for change, anticipating worries and answering human needs, seems to be inevitable to make sense of future technology developments, regardless of their gigantic market opportunity. ! What is the human opportunity we seek to achieve through technology?
  14. 14. Maybe it’s time to think By extension, it may be that pursuing meaningfulness through teams, companies, we end-up embedding it in our innovation processes, and perhaps, products. ! What if we all created meaningful products? What if we took end-users’ needs at the heart of our thinking models? ! To find out, experts highlight how startups develop breakthrough models, whether it is an economic, a business or a partnership model, to drive disruption and generate systemic impact by concentrating on end-user needs.
  15. 15. Are you the next catalyst? There is part of the answer experts can help with by highlighting specific goals and sectors that need exponential innovation, right now. They even highlight business strategies and leadership attitudes to inspire change makers. ! In this specific case, they seek to inspire the exponential change maker in you. If we believe innovation has no borders, or if we think we can overcome these borders including through diversity, how can we prove it works and how can we make it happen, ‘exponential everything’ style?

  18. 18. How to assess your costs of uniformity The uniformity values identified in the analysis help understand the core behaviors to avoid if innovation wants to include diversity as a core value. ! Based on those human learnings and habits that have inspired automated and industrialized ways of working, it is possible to anticipate the frustration and lack of innovation that experts have already identified in numerous disrupted sectors and economic models.
