Steven Shapiro’s observations are common sense but brilliant common sense. Shapiro often puts himself in the position of the kid who calls the Emperor on his choice of clothes — none — and the critical observer who provides answers pertinent to the enhancement of innovation processes. His answers aren’t how-to’s but more why-to’s, which is more valuable in the long run. Thirty minutes into the presentation, I was still involved, still eager to hear more from Shapiro. He makes sense by avoiding cant. Being a heretic, after all, is what innovating is all about. It does make implementation difficult, however. We need a second presentation by Shapiro to hear how he manages or views others as achieving implementation of innovation. Think about that.
