21. Mai 2015: „Creating an Innovative Culture: The Essence of Understanding, Designing and Shaping“

Aspire PastedGraphic-5ASPIRE Konferenz: How far can we go?, Krakau, Polen


Innovation is the lifeblood of enterprises. Without innovation they stall in their development, become vulnerable to competition and are eventually bound to vanish from the market.

Innovation comes in two distinctive traits: it may be continuous, incremental, sustainable – or it may be groundbreaking, revolutionary, disruptive.

Digging into big data and mining for information is a valuable tool for predicting future behaviour. By extrapolating from historical data the likely “behavioural” future is predicted with more precision than ever before.

On a personal level we are offered what we believe we want. And because of this – for reasons of convenience and comfort – it becomes ever less likely that our behaviour is NOT as predicted.

By this means we enter into a spiral of ever self-fulfilling prophecy.

This has far reaching implications, however, in terms of disruptive innovation. To think OUTSIDE of the box becomes a more conscious, reflective, and intentional process.

Vortrag mit Empfang an der Deutschen Botschaft in Riyadh

Herr Dr. Weis hat mit seinem Vortrag über Innovation seine Zuhörer zum Nachdenken, Diskutieren, aber auch zum Schmunzeln gebracht. Er ist hervorragend vorbereitet, trifft den richtigen Ton und führt zahlreiche Beispiele aus der Praxis auf. Sein Vortrag war bereichernder Auftakt zu einer Vortragsreihe an der Botschaft in Riyadh und ist sehr empfehlenswert.
