Identifying innovation

The “innovation” label can sometimes feel a bit overused, especially when it is now affixed to everything from kitchen appliances to bottled water. In a business context, it often seems anything can be called “innovation” as long as it looks even slightly different to how things have always been done!

This makes true innovation all the more valuable when it does occur. Dr. Michael Rosemann, Professor of Information Systems and Executive Director, Corporate Engagement, at Queensland University of Technology, is an expert at spotting these rare occasions. 

Dr. Rosemann’s work is focused on creating compelling future worlds, with tomorrow’s possibilities making current practices obsolete. He presented attendees at Signavio’s Business Leaders Luncheon with a range of practical insights and recommendations on how businesses can capitalize on the “opportunity richness” of the digital age, as opposed to remaining focused on streamlining existing processes.

(Of course, Signavio is no slouch when it comes to unleashing innovation – check out our blog post on how design thinking can help transform your business.)
