Jeff Philipps (und interessante Kommentare) zur Frage ob Innovationskultur, -fähigkeit et. trainierbar ist.
“Can you train someone to be innovative?” I think you can, only I think it works better if you train a bunch of people all at once. More precisely, if you train an intact team or organization.This way, all of the people have a shared experience that they all take back with them to their workplace.
The central theory of Christensen’s work is the dichotomy of sustaining and disruptive innovation. A sustaining innovation hardly results in the downfall of established companies because it improves the performance of existing products along the dimensions that mainstream customers value.
Disruptive innovation, on the other hand, will often have characteristics that traditional customer segments may not want, at least initially. Such innovations will appear as cheaper, simpler and even with inferior quality if compared to existing products, but some marginal or new segment will value it.
When we talk about design we need to go further than products or technologies, we need consider the user experience.
