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.
