InnovationHuebnerTFSC2005.pdf (application/pdf Object)
"In conclusion, the evidence presented indicates that the rate of innovation reached a peak over a
hundred years ago and is now in decline. This decline is most likely due to an economic limit of
technology or a limit of the human brain that we are approaching. We are now approximately 85% of the
way to this limit, and the pace of technological development will diminish with each passing year."

Drop Innovation from Your Vocabulary - Jack Springman - Harvard Business Review
"Over the past ten years, innovation has become an industry in itself. Innovation experts are the first to encourage businesses to be heretical and challenge the widespread assumptions of their industry. Perhaps it is now time to do the same with innovation? Companies that achieve high-growth rates do so because they create increasing value for an increasing number of customers. Focusing on that rather than innovation will increase the likelihood of success. "

A smaller gear, or a stronger steel. « Magical Nihilism
“It was a phenomenon Galileo had noticed before; improvements at the artisanal level passed from workshop to workshop without scholars or princes knowing anything about them, and so it often happened that suddenly workshops everywhere could all make a smaller gear, or a stronger steel.”

"Building a capacity for advanced technology is not like planning production in a socialist economy, but more like growing a rock garden. Planting, watering, and weeding are more appropriate than five-year plans."

We All Work at Enron Now - Umair Haque - Harvard Business Review
"The Enron effect is highly hazardous because it lethally poisons incentives. Incentives shape human behavior — and overcounting benefits and undercounting costs is a surefire way to blunt our incentives to innovate, to take on ambitious goals, and create real value. In fact, understating costs and overstating benefits creates disincentives to do that, and creates, instead, incentives to at best rest on your fading laurels forever — and at worst, extract, exploit, purloin, loot, glad-hand, and pass the buck."

"My grandfather grew up in the 1900s in a world of horse-drawn carts and candle-lit houses. In the following 50 years he would live through a series of astonishing transformations – electricity, the motor car, television and radio, the telephone, the refrigerator, the vacuum-cleaner, penicillin and the aeroplane, just to name a few. It was not just these things that made the 20th century what it was. Their production was industrialised. They created huge employment and wealth.
I grew up in the 1960s and have experienced no such parallel transformations. Certainly, over the past 15 years, the mobile phone and internet have changed the way we all communicate. But the world of the early 2010s is recognisably the same as the early 1960s. The technologies have all incrementally advanced but the artefacts of, say, Mad Men are essentially the same, whereas those in, say, Downton Abbey are not. We live broadly as we did 50 years ago."

The Local Maximum - 52 Weeks of UX
"In order to design through the local maximum we need a balance between the science-minded testing methodology and the intuitive sense designers use when making big changes. We need to intelligently alternate between innovation and optimization, as both are required to design great user experiences."

NESTA - Driving Innovation in Cities
"Achieving economic growth and recovery when faced with an empty public purse and a radical agenda for devolution mean the need to innovate is greater then ever. So how can cities create an environment in which businesses and the public and third sectors can innovate more, better and faster? How can the new government's agenda enable cities to drive economic growth with innovation?"

plate and serve
"And I think the golden thread that I can trace right through to service design is a fascination for designed narrative and structure. Creating something that is fully artificial (an argument, a film, a website) which to the reader/viewer/user feels totally organic. A great essay, film, website or service should speak for itself – it doesn’t need description or instruction. I like the idea of doing all the hard work so someone gets something intuitive, polished and seamless. That’s what I try to do for services – take that artificial thing and make it feel natural."

“Design thinking is a nonsensical phrase that deserves to die” – Don Norman- 90 Percent of Everything
"When I was at Apple, we did a lot of design research [...] We did a lot. We worried about all these fundamental things. We did user studies. We went to people’s homes. [...] You know what Steve jobs did when he arrived? He fired all of us! And guess what resulted? Better products! Which have revolutionized the way we use machines. And he fired the usability groups as well.”

Richard Seymour on Eastman Innovation Lab - Core77
"As Richard Seymour sees it, designers by the nature of their work are futurists. "The least time it takes to produce a product and get it on the shelf is a couple of years," he says. "Sometimes it can be 10-15 years. So you're already dealing with the future when you sit at your desk in the morning."

"For a century, ATT’s culture had prized—insisted on—quality of service. Their HR Department worked to identify potential employees who would be willing to cut corners, but the point of identifying those people was to avoid hiring them. The idea of getting into a business where those would be the ideal employees was heresy. ATT, like most organizations, could not be good at the thing it was good at and good at the opposite thing at the same time. The web hosting business, because it followed the “Simplicity first, quality later” model, didn’t just present a new market, it required new cultural imperatives."
