  20. 20. WHAT IS INNOVATION? 14 According to Tom Gorman, innovation is creating a novelty based on an idea. However, simply coming up with the idea does not suffice to create an innovator. An innovator must effect change in the real world. Thus, rather than remaining potential, an innovation – a new „product, service or process“ – must solve a real- world problem.

  23. 23. APPLE 17 The company is a prime example of an innovator, which change the perception for a personal computer from a cumbersome machine into an elegant accessory. Apple did not invent the computer. Other people did. Moreover, businesses had been already using computers before Apple entered the market for computers. However, Apple revolutionized this market by „[popularizing] the microcomputer.“ Apple succeeded because the large mainframe computers of the time were hard to use. IBM dominated the mainframe market, but it did not lead the way to smaller computers. DEC developed a minicomputer – but even DEC „didn’t develop and popularize the microcomputer – Apple did.“ It took an existing product, shrunk it, redesigned it and made it simpler to use.

  26. 26. WHAT HAPPENS IF A COMPANY IS NOT INNOVATIVE? 20 Most businesses are built to be efficient and profitable, but not necessarily innovative. By definition, innovation disturbs sameness. It dismantles routines. It invites unpredictability. However, innovation should not be taken for granted. Launching great innovation is often incompatible with the organizational rigidity of modern companies. Therefore, most companies need restructuring which would be conducive to innovation.

  29. 29. SONY 23 Not long ago, the Walkman was as ubiquitous as the iPod is today, and Sony dominated the market for TVs, cameras, video recorders, and many other consumer electronics. But as Sony became a huge conglomerate with film and music divisions, it lost leadership in many of its core product lines. What tripped up Sony and some of its competitors was the move from hardware to software, which put the emphasis on the brains of the device rather than the circuitry. As a result, faster-moving competitors like LG, Samsung, Vizio, Apple, and the various makers of cell phones—which of course come with cameras these days—have outpaced this old-school innovator.

  43. 43. 32 Many organizations set up innovation incubators or labs but, because of their loose integration into the company, many promising ideas fail to be promoted and adopted.
  44. 44. 33 Innovations can happen most easily in nimble environments, which should not necessarily be limited to the walls of a lab.
  45. 45. 34 First Goal: Adding value to the brand Pixelpark itself, not a sub label or sub brand.
  46. 46. 35 Second Goal: Adding value to the already existing structure and getting employees more engaged on innovative processes.

  56. 56. 47 When a company like Pixelpark has existed for 20 years it has well established workflows, which are very efficient when applied to large- scale projects. To achieve fast start-up like results, a large company, such as Pixelpark has to disrupt its established workflows.

  58. 58. DESIGN THINKING 49 A large company, as Pixelpark has to disrupt its workflows. Design thinking is crucial to any innovation effort if a company wants to break out of its current business trajectory. Today‘s management concepts are heavily based on optimization and scale economics. This means that making a better use of a company's resources and market power can contribute to gaining competitive advantage. Indeed, design thinking can help achieve this goal.

  66. 66. DESIGN THINKING 51 A large company, as Pixelpark has to disrupt its workflows. There are many different approaches to interpret Design Thinking. My main goal was to develop a methodology that relies on Design Thinking principles and can be easily integrated and executed during a workshop situation.

  76. 76. LARGE GROUP INTERVENTIONS 62 Position of Large Group Internventions in the field of approaches for change. Large Scale Interventions (LSI) are an approach for organizing sustainable changes with active involvement of stakeholders throughout the whole system (e.g. organization or community and its environment). LSI is a process in which participants work in small and (really) large groups. Those groups are so called Large Group Interventions and the number of people involved can vary from five to a thousand.

  85. 85. BY AXEL QUACK I realized there are still »rules« within a company that tend to slow down an organization on progression. So, how can we »hack« this? 64 HACKING SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO BREAK THE RULES ON
  86. 86. BENEVOLENT HACKERS Workers subvert established company policies whenever rules and regulations make their jobs harder or less efficient. This revolution takes the form of circumventing or replacing outmoded or silly procedures. It enables workers to be faster and more productive. 66 HACKING HOW CAN I ACTUALLY HACK A COMPANY? ON
  87. 87. BROKEN BUSINESSES Old business models and processes no longer work. Rigid managers and top-down directives make a company less productive. But hard times demand courage, not timidity. Workers are fighting back. 69 HACKING HOW CAN I ACTUALLY HACK A COMPANY? ON
