“Fundamentally, when you think about innovation, it's actually pretty easy and it's always about being unreasonable.
And the adage is 'All progress is due to the unreasonable person.’ It's just that simple.
If you want innovation, hang out with weird, as Gary Hamel said.
The more people who are telling you - whether they are friends, families, colleagues, professionally or socially - that your ideas are wrong, incorrect or unreasonable, the more likely it is you are on the right track.”
Overheard from Tom Meredith at a Social Innovation event from Dell.
I like Tom Meredith. He talks a lot of sense...
