for The Inversion Factor

THE INVERSION FACTOR

We explore and explain why and how companies need to move away from a “product first” mindset to pursuing innovation based on ‘customer need’. We call this process- Inversion. We chart the evolution of IoT from the current state to the future ‘Immersion of Things’, and help enterprises navigate these waters. Infused with examples and case studies we help companies of all sizes learn how to Invert their companies. The critical triad of Innovation, Technology and Culture is analyzed and we explain that in order to succeed, all three need to succeed at the same time. Without Inversion companies cannot survive in the future hyper connected world.

PROVOKE


In order to innovate we need to disrupt. ProVoke discusses the necessity of disruption and the obstacles to innovation by taking the reader through the 5 stages of resistance to disruption. Each stage is carefully analyzed and the reader is guided through how to overcome the resistances in a productive way. Within companies Cultures of Disruption and Innovation are created as a result of working through the resistances, helping companies innovate at a much higher rate. ProVoke discusses the Ecosystem of Disruption, explaining how employees are the key enablers of innovation in corporations. To effectively disrupt and innovate,  the key is to unleash the unstoppable innovative talent of millions of employees in enterprises. Imagine the possibilities!

COLLABORATION

Collaborating closely with enterprises is a great joy. Not only brainstorming to set the vision for their innovation future, but also to look at what their new products/offerings will look like. Topics range from AI, Machine Learning, IoT, Cognitive, the what/how of cultural changes & more. Out-of-the-box, non-fearful thinking is essential.
