Five Things SI Leaders Need to Know about Innovation (via Leading Strategic Initiatives)
Another great post by Greg Githens and this one on Innovation. There is a story about monkeys living on an island that adopt a behavioral change. This story is being called “hundredth monkey effect” and the idea behind the story is that there is a threshold to be crossed before an innovation becomes a success. Even though this story at best is a good story and not a scientifically proven one, the idea behind it makes sense to me. So, when Greg showed how innovation has a chasm that needs to be crossed before it can succeed, I remembered the monkey story.
