Following our Loop#2, Round#6 discussion, we have
come up with a new question to understand how to use
technologies to reach a systemic, « exponential
everything » impact. The expression is derived from the
idea highlighted by experts that the IoT was driving
knowledge and information sharing in an exponential
way.I have therefore taken on board the investigation of
our current analyses and strategic recommendations to
determine how the rise of digital data could enable
smart change makers to optimize innovation and
drive sustainable, « exponential » growth.
Our latest operational plan, « Tell Your Own Story: how
can you define human values for innovation », has
outlined a pathway to implement change based on
human-centricity and sustain models thanks to diversity-
based innovation processes. This new plan will take these
results forward by creating human values for
exponential catalysts thanks to « New Strategy, New
marketing », defining a thinking framework to manage
costs of uniformity thanks to « Making sense of social
media through diversity », and reverse those costs
towards diversity and innovation virtuous circles
thanks to « Startups, People and Ecosystems: success
and reality ». Diversity management tools used in this
plan are those defined in « Diversity as a success story ».
Finally, the operational analyses driven through the blog
have outlined the aspirations of consultants, experts,
business specialists, leaders, students, end-users and
customers for a smarter innovation. I have gathered those
requirements in a strategic story entitled « Augmented
Innovation ». I have reflected those needs within the
investigation, explaining how data savvy,
constructive and agile change-makers would shape a
strategy to become the next exponential catalyst.
A full list of links to access the tools I have used for this
analysis is available at the end of this plan. I also offer
dedicated sessions to go through your projects and
priorities if you need further assistance rolling-out
diversity as a management and innovation practice in
your business.

Introduction
Author’s comment
They wanted the golden nugget. CEOs and directors I’ve
worked for had this relentless aspiration for more. More
revenues, more customers, more margin. Of course they all
had investors and financial stakeholders to satisfy, as well
as public authorities and legal, tax compliances to follow.
Yet those individuals embodied this thirst for more to a
point they would eventually loose their own vision, in
best situations, or their purpose and personal values,
in the worst cases.
There is very little space for employees and CEOs to reflect
on the impact business pressure can drive on companies,
regardless of their size and sector. I would be interested to
know how any business, given the efforts needed to adapt
to a multi-sector disruption, can thrive without analyzing
what builds their core value as a knowledge community for
their customers, how they can use this expertise to reverse
tensed situation into problem-solving open discussions,
and build upon common grounds and sense to generate
long term value. I have seen smallest and most agile
teams concentrate on developing those ideas and links
between individuals, thanks to inspiring and engaging
leaders. I have seen them build this story and sell it to
customers and investors. I have seen those teams
becoming the gold nugget.
It may well be that the one technical crew that never really
speaks to you actually perfectly handles and manages the
warehouse, and simply isn’t used to sharing any
information with « people from the office ». « People from
the warehouse  » are still happy to spend a few minutes
showing new joiners how their material work, because they
have complaints and they know «  people in the office  »
deal with those issues, and because they know how the
products work, more than your sales force. They install
material, and they repair, manage, store it. And they share
a specific piece of story, without even noticing. It is your
technical team that manages the gold nugget value, not
you. Without new joiners visiting the warehouse, how would
you know? Getting to integrate a diversity of skills and
values within your own business story is a necessary
step to understand how you can become the next gold
nugget for your customers, making yourself an
exponential catalyst for innovation.

Creating human values for the
exponential catalyst
Management view
Innovative marketing and strategy tools have emerged
from connected businesses and markets. Digital tools
enable a higher definition of existing markets, newly
defined stories and conversations with customers.
It is therefore important to integrate into our own
thinking patterns external viewpoints that can help
us complement and diversify our thoughts to
better define new approaches. Our ability to share
differences and learn from them is at the heart of our
innovation capabilities.
We should encourage knowledge sharing and
difference sharing to develop new thinking
patterns and get used to life long learning.
weareinnovation.org
Operational view
« Augmented Innovation » enables to understand how universities and schools seek to challenge
barriers, while politics and public institutions’ willingness to change is questioned. End-users and
customers express what they would expect from the future of customer experience.
By assembling new knowledge and experiences, we should seek to create unprecedented
solutions, investigating the pros and cons without judging but keeping in mind there are reasons
and pathways leading people to perceive situations differently.
Starting from there, we should encourage constructive creativity born from cross-breeding
activities and thoughts, constant learning, creating areas to ask questions and analyze
needs for change, constantly optimizing viewpoints, constantly inviting others to jointly
create a better world.
weareinnovation.org
Experts view
Our latest discussions have highlighted a vested interest
from our global community to better interact with
complex personalities and individual purposes to make
sense of innovation. Developing diversity as a
management practice, that is enabling diversity of
cultures and ideas to solve common business issues, can
drastically improve businesses potential for innovation.
Being able to properly use and develop inner and outer
diversity requires a level of freedom and open mindset
which we need to build and encourage. Experts and
analysts outline the reasons and specific context which
are preventing diversity to properly work and develop so
as to deliver full value.
They also outline the tools and strategies we can use
to lead to a more open environment where individual
are encourage to be the best of who they are,
embracing their individual value to make use of them
in teams of skills and talents defining solutions for
common goals. And we had already defined a whole
plan to do that.
