Meta Innovation

Let’s start:

What is “Meta”?

Merriam-Webster says:

  • “Behind,” Beyond,” “About”

  • More comprehensive, transcending

  • Usually used with the name of a discipline to designate a new but related discipline designed to deal critically with the original one.

 

Hence, Meta Innovation:

Go beyond the conventional ways of thinking about “Innovation.”

 

The following dimensions are somehow overlapping.

But, for the sake of simplicity, we will make the distinctions.

 

The X-Dimension = The Managerial Dimension

Question: where is the decision taking place?

 

Command & Control”  <  ===  > “Autonomy

Power”  <  ===  > “Subject Matter Knowledge

The Challenge: How to Make a Quick and Appropriate response.

This is the key to creating a competitive advantage

 

The Y-Dimension = The Organization Dimension

The Question:

How many layers of “Hierarchies”?

Cause:

  • Too much non-productive “Coordination.”

  • Too many non-fruitful meetings

  • Too many “Reports.”

  • Too many CC

Sound familiar?...

 

The Z-Dimension = The Behavioural Dimension

Non-Awareness”  <  ===   > “Awareness

How does it influence our ability to make sense and make a decision?

Human thinking errors:

  • “Bias”

  • “Noise”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meta Innovation:

Go beyond the conventional ways of thinking about “Innovation.”

 

The WHY. The aims:

  • To give the entire stakeholders the sense of ownership

  • To create a sustainable competitive advantage

 

The HOW:
