Innovation

  • Brittni Bowering on what happens after you run a design sprint –  Design sprints need iteration
    “An iteration sprint is a simplified version of the first design sprint week where we take all the feedback and insights from the user tests and make small (or big) changes to the idea. This gives us the time and framework to rework the solution and bring it closer to something that the target user would love to use. The outcomes were overwhelmingly positive—so now, these are a crucial part of our design sprint process.”
  • Also on design sprints Stéphane Cruchon looks at How to Make Design Sprints Work at Big Companies. “How, in this case, does one manage what comes after, and build on the positive energy of the Sprint? How to maintain that energy as everything becomes blurry, slow, bureaucratic again?” The proposed, interesting solution, is the design sprint quarter:

  • More on design sprints in Jake Knapp’s newsletter.
  • Jeanne W. Ross, Cynthia M. Beath and Martin Mocker share some insights into how larger companies are managing ideas for innovation and learning in Creating Digital Offerings Customers Will Buy
  • NYCML Innovation Monitor considers the technological social responsibilities of companies: “The most important element of TSR: Management needs to take responsibility for technology’s impact on society at large. Once again, similarly to Corporate Social Responsbility, organizations must address the externalities of their technological decisions. They must staff C-suites accordingly and imbue this ethos at every level of the organization.”

Innovation and strategy

  • Professor Gary Pisano at Harvard Business School talks about how to construct a strategy, system, and culture of innovation that creates sustained growth and his new book, Creative Construction in this Innovation Leader interview.
  • Ola Henfridsson and Joe Nandhakumar write about a new strategy tool for the digital age:
    “Digital innovation is at the heart of any strategy in the digital age and to be successful doesn’t stop at a one-off cleverly designed resource. Launching the product or service is just the beginning, it then needs to be attractive enough so it is recombined many times by other users, with new updates and value paths constantly being sought.”

And finally…

The Royal Society of Medicine’s Medical apps: Mainstreaming innovation event is happening on 4 April. The event will examine the growing role that apps play in healthcare delivery. As apps move from concept to practice using cutting-edge technology, demonstrating efficacy becomes increasingly important, resulting in regulatory and legal issues. Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock MP, will talk of the importance of good design in medical apps and how it can improve patient and clinician experience. There will also be a number of presentations from new and established medical start-ups, showcasing the transformative effects these new technologies can have.
