In the actual world outdoors of academia, we now have the identical drawback the place company workers are discouraged from considering, educated to do issues precisely as per the worker handbook, BMPs (finest administration practices) of business, or instructions from their bosses, but their bosses are doing the identical factor? Is anybody – even the C-suite or board of administrators considering anymore? Are they busy copying advertising campaigns, enterprise methods, and processes of their rivals too – apparently so, which is pretty apparent studying commerce journals and following business associations.
In truth, many business associations (bureaucratic established order) have coaching programs for folks within the business – however that simply means as soon as everyone seems to be educated – each firm goes across the similar observe on the similar velocity with the identical horsepower, and similar guidelines as everybody else. Welcome to the human rat race – appears to be like extra like NASCAR than revolutionary innovation or nice leaps of expertise. How are you able to or your organization win for those who simply copy what everybody else is doing, or making an attempt to do? How can your organization provide you with a breakthrough or the subsequent new factor?
We Americans complain when China and others rip-off our mental property, and but, what are we doing to ourselves? Doesn’t anybody suppose anymore? Every time I flip round I see the identical factor. What occurred to American Innovation, inventive drawback fixing, and that ‘can do perspective’ that when there’s a will, we’ll discover a approach? We see only some companies considering anymore or pushing the envelope? Why?
Do we now have too many confining guidelines and laws? Are too many corporations apprehensive about lawsuits or pull-backs in shareholder’s fairness, inventory worth and quarterly earnings? Are there too many class motion legal professionals able to strike – holding corporations from taking dangers? Are corporations too involved with boycotts enabled by political correctness in our evolving society – watch out to not offend anybody – be secure, do not rock the boat?
Is all of it of this stuff talked about above, plus the sluggish thoughts-numbing indoctrination of media, academia and the inherent ever pervasive authorities indoctrination? Perhaps, however what is the underlining trigger. Humans will not be getting much less clever. IQ scores have been rising for a 100-years. Could social media have an element on this drawback I’ve noticed? Some say social media has helped innovation – has it actually? It appears that sooner communication would enhance authentic thought and make everybody a bit of extra progressive – however it hasn’t. It seems it’s dummying down our society greater than it’s serving to foster inventive minds and turning us all into innovators.
