Will There Be an Avogadro of Innovation?
Boston: Another Molecule in the Mole of Innovation. Will There Be an Avogadro of Innovation?
Atoms and molecules are so small that even few grams of a substance contain so many; counting them by the billions or trillions is just as pointless as counting them one by one: this is part of our early learnings in chemistry. Chemists therefore use a unit called the mole. One mole of molecules of water, for example, contains 6.022140758 x 1023 molecules. That long number is called Avogadro’s number after the early 19th-century Italian scientist Amadeo Avogadro.
We have recently conducted an innovation exploration visit for one of our key government partners in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that covered two cities in the United States of America (USA): New York and Boston. This trip is part of a large innovation program we run across the Globe that consists mainly of building organizational capabilities and defining key challenges and issues related to the scope of work of the entity, leading to finding the right solutions at the right timing with the right resources.
The purpose of the trip relies on benefiting from visits to Fortune 500 companies, leading start-ups and academic institutions to build tangible prototypes for strong and robust implementable business models linked to the concepts solving the initially defined challenges. It also aims to invest the new connections and relationships for the benefit of the organization in general and all its departments depending on their respective needs and requirements.
In this article, we will be sharing with you the key take-aways throughout this program certified by the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI). To start with, it is worth mentioning that it should be well known and understood to the leadership and top management of any organization that the outcomes of an innovation program aiming to solve identified challenges are never known at the very beginning of the program; they cannot even be “pre-cooked”. Trusting the success of the applied methodology and innovation processes is key to succeed.
