Reengineer Your Conversations To Be More Innovative
If ideas move the world, conversations move ideas. Ideas at rest add no value; only ideas in motion have a chance of becoming innovations. Conversations, of all sorts — face to face, asynchronous, electronic, analog; any way you can think of for putting two or more minds together — are the motors that we rely upon for moving ideas around, keeping them in motion, and hopefully adding value. It’s happening all around us, or not, in the organizations of which we are a part, in the communities of knowledge to which we belong. Some do it better than others, of course, but if you observe the conversations around you, you have a good starting point for improving your chances for more successful innovation.
