PMI Congresses fuel me

Categories: EMEA

PMI Congresses fuel me, inspire me. Not in the way that I come here to fine concrete or plugg & play solutions to my problems. It is rather a place where I find raw material that I (may) use to elaborate new solutions. I always fine good raw material.

R&D - Ripoff & Duplicate

This time in Rome I attended sessions on innovation. Like most (if not all), I really liked the closing keynote, Magnus Lindkvist. I thought he had both an original style and an original content. His message was: we are good at imitating and poor at innovating. Doesn't it reminds you with my post yesterday? See here Project Management is imitation, not innovation.

For Lindkvisk, R&D means for him Ripoff & Duplicate (rather than Research and Development). I love the idea. Our everyday life proove it: we all want the same jobs, the same fancy places where to live, the same cars, the same team members, the same tools, the same best practices... don't we?

Innovation is for people the fools, those who do what others don't, they go where others don't, they buy what others don't... Innovation requires that you strongly believe in your value system to continue out of the roads. 

Yeah!
