Innovation, play and failing

Interview with Mike Smith

Why do we need to innovate?
What are the drivers for innovation?
How much time would you invest in something if it made an awful task more bearable?

I really enjoyed this interview with Mike as we talked about his award-winning presentation.

Mike and I discuss innovation and the different factors that affect it. We specifally mention the following points:

  • Time is equally valuable
    • Make time to play
    • Be curious
    • Play with purpose
  • Culture effect
    • Say ‘yes’ to opportunities
    • Look for supportive managers
    • Delivery is more important
  • Failure
    • Fail early. Fail often.
    • Blameless post -mortem
  • Communication
    • Build relationships
