Editor’s note: This article presents a counter-argument to the notion that innovation has to start with a problem to be solved and end up with a solution to that problem. The alternative should be to create an organisational system that has a purpose, is motivated to do new and different things and has a process to develop and discard new ideas. As the author says, “Artists don’t solve problems. Neither do real innovators. Did the iPhone start with solving a problem? Did Amazon ? Did Facebook? I don’t think so.”

Editor’s note: Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of, or used, Tiktok. what matters here is how this video/social platform keeps your attention. It’s a fascinating media, technology and communications story. One that is being lived by many of the next wave of employees.

Editor’s note: An anthropologist was sent in to a university that produces leading research into how students learn best to find out why the university wan’t putting its research into practice. The key finding? Fear of looking stupid. This is a great example of how and why innovation stalls.

Editor’s note: There’s a good message here for anyone trying to get colleagues on board with new ways of doing things. It is: understand what is exciting to them about the new ways of doing things and sell that concept. I guess some would call it ‘engagement’.

Editor’s note: McDonalds wanted to sell more milkshakes but they didn’t understand what job the milkshake was doing. Once they did, they understood how to sell more. Are there parallels here for L&D? Do we understand the job to be done?

Editor’s note: If you are trying to improve a learning product or service then it pays to figure out the job that product or service is there to do. Thanks to Nick Shackleton-Jones for pointing to this.
