Some people are afraid that their idea can be stolen. I have never seen an idea run by itself. With all that it takes to innovate, it’s not the idea that makes the idea, it’s the team. Not the idea but the team is your most critical asset ever.

Setting Up a Digital Proof-of-Concept Factory initiative
Linkedin
May 13, 2017
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do" (Rob Siltanen and Lee Clow)

10 Keynotes
New Value Creation
Association of AMBAs
December 07, 2020
Value creation of any business should no longer be ruled by the financial values only.
This value system has not only systemically created irreconcilable inequalities with human rights, but has also indiscriminately precipitated global pollution and depletion of natural resources necessary for any human life.
The time has come to define new business value norms leading to reinvent what any businesses’ value creation should be.

12 rules for business innovation
Innov8rs
February 02, 2020
Number 1: Many people assume that generating new ideas is the beginning. It’s not.
Number 2: It's not the idea that makes the idea, it's the team.
Number 3: Business Innovation starts with a Roadmap with no Plan.
Number 4: There is only one place to be: the Uncomfortable Zone.
Number 5: Fail Fast only makes sense to Learn Fast.
Number 6: Don’t seek the path for Perfection, but the Speed.
Number 7: Doing a lot more, doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done.
Number 8: No innovation without progress — no progress without transgression.
Number 9: Better is not good enough – Different is better than better.
Number 10: Great experience leads to great products – not the other way around.
Number 11: Adoption means Network Benefits + Stand-alone Benefits – Price ≥ 0.
Number 12: Pitch the value, not the features.

Owning what the customer journey is
e-Connect B2B e-Commerce conference
December 03, 2019
Want to be Customer-Centric?
What your customer need is the destination.
What your customer want is the journey.
Being Customer-Centric is not about focusing on the customer’s needs but on the customer’s journey.
The Customer-Centric mind shift is to get to know what your customer really want, to deliver what they need to master their journey, before they even think about what that could be, should be or looks like.

No business model lasts forever — They all have an expiry date.
Open Innovation Summit Berlin
November 20, 2019
Only 12% of the Fortune 500 companies included in 1955 were still on the list in 2017. On the remaining 88%, there are bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, as well as companies that still exist, but are simply not part of the Fortune 500 anymore. Going forward, in the context of this third industrial revolution, the risk is very high for any large company around the world to face a “Kodak moment”, to be overtaken by new digital offers and end up with a business that dies out.

Embracing that particular place: the Uncomfortable Zone.
Johnson
June 03, 2019
Seeking to work with people who look like us, act like us, think like us, went through the same experiences as ours, over and over again, while expecting different results, is the definition of insanity — It’s being regularly in contact with what seems different to us that gives us the opportunity to evolve, grow and develop completely new thought patterns, and finally create new things.

Industrial revolutions always precede disruptions. Only 12% of the Fortune 500 companies included in 1955 were still on the list in 2017. On the remaining 88%, there are bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, as well as companies that still exist, but are simply not part of the Fortune 500 anymore. Going forward, the risk is very high for any large company around the world to face a “Kodak moment”, to be overtaken by new digital offers and end up with a business that dies out.

Accelerating new businesses at Thales Digital Factory
Nicolas Bry
April 08, 2019
Digital transformation at Thales involves digital offers, and digital ways of working, with Ux (User Experience) at the center. The challenge is to achieve a fine product, with a more agile way of working, and in line with TTM (Time To Market). There is a symmetry of attentions to create new offers and to think product differently: it involves a new mindset, starting from customers’ problems, and introducing technology as a solution to a problem.
