If you want to revive, renew and reinvent your activity wouldn’t it be handy to have an INNOVATION MANAGER?
Just as even the most expert surgeon can’t operate on himself, you need someone with an outside perspective.
A fresh pair of eyes and new brain can work wonders. By giving the doctor your trust and complete information, you’re on the way to being cured.
Every case is different, and you need not only deep experience of different kinds of innovation techniques, but also be able to gauge how it will impact your specific organization.
What kind of person becomes an INNOVATION MANAGER?
Usually they are generalists rather than specialists. These people can fit for so many different positions because they bring a wide-angle lens to a problem that a normal employee would just bring a close up view for. The best example is the main character from a TV series “Pretender”, Jarod who can quickly master complex skill sets to successfully impersonate any profession. It sounds unbelievable but these kinds of people really exist and can create huge benefits for those who are looking for effective innovations.
How does an INNOVATION MANAGER Operate?
Studies indicate that our ability to think creatively comes one-third from genetics; but two-thirds of the innovation skill set comes through LEARNING and UNDERSTANDING different skills then PRACTICING, EXPERIMENTING
and at the end ASSOCIATING them.
So, an INNOVATION MANAGER will come to your “home” – company, he is going to
to observe everything like an anthropologist or social scientist.
He carefully looks for small behavioral details—in the activities of customers, suppliers, and even cleaning ladies of your office—in order to gain insights about new ways of doing things.
Then he is going to talk to as many team members as possible, including an engineer, a stay-at-home dad, and a designer to identify what kind of innovation could benefit your business or organization.
The most important role of INNOVATION MANAGER is to find THE RIGHT QUESTIONS.
Is it a new team?
Is it a management technique?
Is it a product?
Is it service offer?
Is it a marketing campaign?
Is it a communication campaign?
Is it long-term vision?
Is it turnover?
Is it a leadership skill?
Is it the atmosphere?
Is it meaning of work?
Is it the engineers?
Is it the front-line workers?
Is it the office?
Is it the motivation?
Is it the general mood?
Is it clients service?
Is it proceeding?
Is it logistics?
What is it?
‘If we did this, what would happen?’”
Bringing all the team together, mixing them with new professionals from outside, asking to imagine a completely different alternative can lead to truly original insights.
In these ways INNOVATION MANAGER will find the ANSWERS together with the team and will develop the creative spark in everyone.
The best historical example is the “Medici effect,” referring to the creative explosion in Florence when the Medici family as “INNOVATION MANAGER” of that time brought together people from a wide range of disciplines—sculptors, scientists, poets, philosophers, painters, and architects. As these individuals connected, new ideas blossomed at the intersections of their respective fields, thereby spawning the Renaissance, one of the most inventive eras in history.
If you want a Renaissance in your business – just reserve a call :)

Research. Apparently, we are still evolving! Programming code is not activating the usual suspect brain regions - math, language or logic. Such type of activity rather activates a so called multiple demand network, which processes several signals from different areas of the brain and both hemispheres. Sounds quite renaissance!
With, that, I demand that IT profession is classified as exact science!
OK OK, just kidding. But still, brings a whole another perspective on how we think. And code.

1. What triggered my nerve particularly, is the fact that the research was solely based on the very 1% on population, who stay metabolically healthy thin people, stressing the fact that it is unfair towards the other's, who are putting effort in looking good. I love having to put effort in everything.
2. Maybe this is not exactly what the scientists suggested, however the journalists introduced it in a way that everyone will be able to pig out no matter their health consequences. (This is most meutral article I could find)
3. Thin gene will eventually kill our planet as it already struggles with human activity directed towards our survival, regarding food resources.
4. This will completely destroy the discipline of eating habbits, promote even worse food waste and destroy all the boundaries...
5. Is this definitely something worth researching instead of promoting healthy food choices ?
What do you think? Am I too paranoid that humanity will turn this thin gene to their own egoistic advantage?
Learn from the dead, not from the living.
Survivorship bias can lead to overly optimistic beliefs because failures are ignored, such as when companies that no longer exist are excluded from analyses of financial performance. It can also lead to the false belief that the successes in a group have some special property, rather than just coincidence (correlation proves causality).
In finance, survivorship bias is the tendency for failed companies to be excluded from performance studies because they no longer exist. It often causes the results of studies to skew higher because only companies that were successful enough to survive until the end of the period are included.
