Since NIF bases its value on innovation, can I ask if anyone here has seen the most dramatic innovation in the last two years? How could we apply that approach to our context at NIF?Would love to hear your thoughts on this! Cheers,Talitha
Indeed, the culture of experimentation, that's what we need.👍
Very cool @christofel and you know what, my husband and I were among those people who tuned in to their live preview of the cyber truck. I actually quite like the look as it reminds me of the car I saw on Blade Runner, it has cyberpunk feel to it. But in the preview, when the window was broken, Elon Musk stayed calm and made a joke about it. I love how composed he was at that time!
You made a good point about the "try and fail" or if I can put it differently "the culture of experimentation". I do think that to successfully innovate and normalise the culture of innovation, we need to make experimentation an integral part of everyday life. This means creating an environment where CCs (and even members) curiosity is nurtured, data trumps opinion, ethics over politics, and a new model of leadership is constantly being challenged and tested.
I've seen quite a lot innovation since the last two years, but one innovation that I want to highlight is an innovation from Tesla, the Cyber Truck!
(disclaimer, not an advertisement :D)
To me, they innovate in so many ways:
- The Design, it looks different with other truck in the market out there. It's futuristic and unusual.
- The Concept, they are combining the utility from a normal truck and performance from a sports car.
- The Marketing and Advertisement, they make this looks like affordable when every one can place a purchased order just for $100. It seems like putting people a sense of belonging and commitment to buy the car when it released (approx 2021)
- They do not afraid to try and fail. Some people criticized about how it look. Some said it ugly, and some people argue the safety because it doesn't have "wing mirror" (if you noticed from the pic above).
How can we apply the approach at NIF context?
- Different, Unusual. We should actively explore our 'not-so-common' or crazy ideas. Partner up with the right team/person and execute it. Do not afraid (to fail) to throw your ideas out.
- Combining expertise among members to come up with something new.
- Try and Fail. Build Fast, Kill Fast. Never expect and innovation to happen in one try.
