16407: Learning Innovation from Seattle

hwms.coverart

We move from city to city but what do we learn from our visits? This podcast looks at one corner in Seattle and asks what it teaches us about our model of innovation, a model that is based on:

 

  1. Vision
  2. Iteration and Refinement
  3. Socialization
  4. Small Group Decisions

The city has a few things to teach us, though perhaps not in the way that we might expect.

hwms.coverart

This fall, the podcast moves to Seattle. Such moves keep us flexible, agile, ready to face any task. Well, perhaps any task. There is this problem with slugs. However, we’re in Seattle to consider the attributes of an innovative organization. In the process, we’re looking at four attributes: Vision, Refinement, Socialization, and Decision-making. But to do that, we have to settle into our office. A local property manager is some help (though not much) and our hardworking intern puts down her box of material to deliver the lyrical speech “Rohit that Slug had a mother.”
