Most systems are improved incrementally-they are made faster, smaller, more intuitive, cheaper, and so on. However, systems that are improved only incrementally are almost always doomed by the arrival of an innovation that removes and replaces the original. Remember when mobile phones became incrementally smaller-which was what consumers were asking for at the time-and then the iPhone arrived and swept the small phones away.
While we all accept that innovation is a good thing, most of us consider that it is "someone else's job". Many companies have processes and constraints that while not hostile to innovation, are definitely not conducive to innovation. The goal of this talk is to demonstrate that innovation is possible, preferable and can be achieved by most organizations.
