Innovation – Just Do It

Did you know that you can be innovative?  Studies haves shown that your ability to generate innovative ideas is not merely a function of the mind, but also a function of behaviors.  If you change your behavior you will change your innovation impact.
Jeffrey H. Dyer, Hal B. Gregersen, and Clayton M. Christensen studied the habits of 25 innovative entrepreneurs and surveyed more than 3,000 executives and 500 individuals who had started innovative companies or invented new products.
They identified the five learnable skills of disruptive innovators; associating, questioning, observing, networking and experimenting.
According to Jeff and Hal, “Innovators ask provocative questions that challenge the status quo.  They observe the world like anthropologists to detect new ways of doing things.  They network with people who don’t look or think like them to gain radically different perspectives.  They experiment relentlessly to test new ideas and try out new experiences.  Finally, these behaviors trigger new associations which let them to connect the unconnected, thereby producing disruptive ideas.
