“We know the people innovators don't even know they need to know.”- John Palumbo, Founder of BigHeads
"Innovation never comes from the established institution. It’s always a graduate student or a crazy person or somebody with great vision."– Eric Schmidt, Executive Chariman of Google
“If you’re not making room for the unexpected meeting of minds, you could be missing out on the next big breakthrough.”– Beth Comstock, Vice Chair of GE
When the time comes to innovate there are two paths you can take. You can head down the comfortable path and rely on all those familiar and expected sources for inspiration. Or you can break out of your comfort zone and see what you can learn from unfamiliar and unexpected sources.
Of course, taking the second path is uncomfortable. It can even be a bit scary. It requires lots of patience and a collaborative mindset. Simply put, it’s hard…BUT it’s worth it. It’s worth it, because you’ll find new ways to solve tough problems by learning how people in other industries tackled similar challenges. It’s worth it, because you will come together with bright minds who will look at your projects through a completely different lens and give you ideas you never would have considered. It’s worth it, because you will uncover strategies, technologies and tools from other industries that can be applied to your own. It’s worth it, because you will become a master at CONNECTING THE DOTS and everyone knows that innovation relies on being able to make random connections.
Now, when you’re ready to take this unfamiliar and uncomfortable path, you should give us a call, because we can help you navigate it much more quickly and easily. We can help prepare you and your teams. We can help you harness disparate thinking and make connections back to your business. And we can give you access to our vast network of bright minds from all different disciplines and areas (we call them “BigHeads”) and hand-pick the members who we believe will best help you meet your objective.
