Is it desireable to teach and motivate others to innovate without being innovative?


Drucker asserts that a core competency of every organization is innovation.


Is innovation an absolute measure or a relative measure?


I believe it is a relative measure that implicitly includes the words (more successful than the competition.) In other words can innovation that is less successful than the innovation of your competitors still be considered innovation?




What if an entire industry is considered innovative? Would virtually any company in an innovative industry gain some level of perceived success? At some point the buyer learns to distinguish the true innovators from those merely claiming the title!


How is the training industry perceived? How should it be perceived? How could it be measured?


Here's a definition of innovation from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innovation

Here's a definition of innovation from encyclopedia Brittanica http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/675239/innovation


Make what you will of these choices and definitions. Which do you consider to be more innovative- Wikipedia or encyclopedia Brittanica? Have their innovations influenced each other?

2018 - This morning I had breakfast with Ed Flynn (thank you Ed.)

Ed is building on his career in technology and workplace learning with a focus on residential real estate. He has the potential to accelerate innovation in residential real estate as he innovates.

  • What obstacles to innovation will Ed experience? (specific to residential real estate)
  • What suggestions do you have for Ed as he works to overcome these obstacles?
  • Who do you expect will welcome innovations in residential real estate?
  • Who do you expect will be reluctant to acknowledge these innovations?

Ed - what are you willing to share regarding your experience with innovation in residential real estate?
