Let us STOP innovation!

Bild
ENTOV-HVM is all about learning how to ACCELERATE innovation - ideally to a "heart-beat". In the course of various discussions we have also come across the question whether we should try to STOP innovation in some industries - sound strange?
Well think again.... not only is there a concept regarding "responsible" innovation, but there are also huge industries out there that are immensely illegal and immoral by many standards - drugs, weapons, sex, gambling and human trafficking immediately come to mind, or most things on the dark web... these industries are incredibly capable of rapid innovation - indeed it is the only way they survive... the interesting point of course is that they are by default unregulated, understanding their "innovation webs" is a unique challenge.
What if we could learn how to STOP or slow innovation in these industries? Maybe a new ENTOV effort in its own right - ENTOV-"SI" for "STOP INNOVATION"? Thoughts appr…

Revised Project Summary: Open European Network for ENTerprise InnOVation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM)

Bild
Based on a variety of feedback on the COST proposal the project summary has been revised as per below and updated on the COST platform. In contrast to the previous version it should now be a lot simpler with a clear focus on the diffusion of innovation in the high value manufacturing context, defines the workgroups based on deliverables and highlights the instrumental role of out ITC colleagues. The next part of the proposal to be revised will be the mission and policy. As always comments and feedback are appreciated and this statement may not exceed 250 words (247 at the moment).
Revised Project Summary: Open European Network for ENTerprise InnOVation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM)
"Competitive advantage in high value manufacturing (HVM) industries, like aerospace and pharmaceuticals, is based on evolving as many new ideas as feasible to market saturation as rapidly as possible.  Examples are super-alloy materials and metal printing. A low percentage of such ideas mast…

So what if Leonardo da Vinci´s ideas had become reality "in a heart-beat"?

Bild
Just spent a wonderful afternoon visiting an exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci´s notebooks at the British Library - phenomenal in many ways and for me perhaps most impressive to see how his ideas initially took shape to then influence us in many ways. When we think about the "speed" of innovation perhaps also a fascinating challenge to explore how his truly visionary ideas might have become reality a lot faster? Enjoy browsing the great material made available online by the exhibition. The image stems from that as well.

High Level View of Innovation Web Archetypes

Bild
Since the previously published views of the innovation web archetypes was too detailed for a small conference paper I am working on we created this high level overview you might find helpful.
Key webs and roles are shown in the circular shapes and (in-) tangible value is transacted between roles as shown by the open green & blue dotted boundaries of such. The use of the dotted boundary lines instead of exchange arrows does a lot to simplify the story and these boundaries also need to be seen as "open" (versus "closed") from a systems perspective.

Summary of Variables affecting the Speed of Innovation in and across Innovation Webs

Bild
The research method used by ENTOV-HVM to examine the speed of innovation is Value Network Analysis (VNA) in combination with Process Analysis (PA), Social Network Analysis (SNA) and Organizational Network Analysis (ONA). The key metrics of VNA, PA, SNA and ONA are applied to a series of archetypal value networks identified in previous research which describe the diffu-sion of innovation process across a variety of industries. The choice of the research method is based on the hypothesis that these archetypes represent an optimum pattern of collaboration in respect to speed of diffusion for ideas through them and that they are best understood using complex adaptive systems principles. It is furthermore assumed that these metrics are interdependent with a unique set of values for stable and transitory behavior of the archetype. The following metrics are integral to the dependency model which is then used to assess the overall innovation speed in and across innovation webs.

A Digital "Salon"? Notes from ENTOV-HVM Alignment Call 12 July 2019

Bild
All – thank you for all those who could make it yesterday! Apologies if I forget anyone and respect that some could not join for the whole call – I think we had: Filipa, Pinar, Mor, Edna, Atis, Nuno, Taner, Paulo, Nigel, Sait, Raminta, Dainora, Fabrizio and „Georgia“?
The image for this posting is drawn from http://slideplayer.com/slide/7092985/24/images/11/The+French+Salon+and+the+Philosophes.jpg and is my personal reflection on the sort of space we are creating. A new discussion drawing on the Parisian salons of the Renaissance and combining them with the possibilities of the digital age :) Thank you to Piero for reminding us continuously that innovation has a long and rich history which always condenses around energizing conversations - I´ll get around to the coffee discussion we had someday as well,
Technically Skype worked well, however in future please do try to be available about 15 minutes before the call so that I can get everyone connected – after we start it is really dif…

Variables of Innovation Web Evolution Speed – Perceived Value

Bild
The speed with which ideas evolve through the innovation web archetypes depends upon 12 (twelve) interdependent variables: Resilience, Reciprocity, Agility, Perceived Value, Value Creation, Asset Impact, Cost Benefit, Sequence, Structural Integrity (Density), Structural Dependency (Centrality), Number of Participants and Stability. These variables are explored in a series of blog postings and will be completed by the presentation of a parametric model describing their interdependencies and permitting the simulation and analysis of the overall innovation web evolution process, including the impact of relevant “interventions” needed to accelerate the idea across the diffusion of innovation curve.
This posting explores the variable “Perceived Value”. This variable is the Value Networks translation of a concept more commonly known as “brand value” and is related to how valuable participants perceive your offerings to be. Perceived value is a way to assess the level of value participants f…

Variables of Innovation Web Evolution Speed - Agility

The speed with which ideas evolve through the innovation web archetypes depends upon 12 (twelve) interdependent variables: Resilience, Reciprocity, Agility, Value Creation, Perceived Value, Asset Impact, Cost Benefit, Sequence, Structural Integrity (Density), Structural Dependency (Centrality), Number of Participants and Stability.

This posting explores the variable “Agility”. Agility is an important indicator of a network’s ability to respond to changing external conditions. It is also an indicator of how easy it is for any participant to reach that participant who might be able to solve a specific problem. The calculat…
