While putting together the Public Sector Innovation Annual Report 2011-2012 I have been following up a few leads recommended by people in our network. Every piece has provoked thought, provided insight, and generally got me excited about being alive. What an amazing time we live in, albeit slightly bi-polar!
I particularly loved Eric Young’s opening plenary at the Entrepreneurs Foundation Corporate Social Impact Conference on March 9, 2012. His ‘shock of the possible’ was in stark contrast to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2012.While both were incredible pieces of work, to me they highlighted the massive gap between problem definition, and transformational change. But together they made me see the possible in the impossible. I want to hop in Eric’s ‘Magic Canoe’ right now!
While reviewing these references, I got to thinking how useful it would be for us to crowd source from our network members the innovation absolute must reads/views for 2012.
What have you come across this year that stopped you in your tracks, made you want to be a better human being, or just made you happy to be alive? Is there anything that has given you purpose on your innovation journey or sparked the match inside you for action to make the world a better place?
