George Roberts :: Blog :: The art of (users and ) innovation

June 10, 2007

Following on from Seb's post I read the cover story of this week's edition of my favourite neoliberal tafsir, the Economist, Lessons from Apple.  The authors derive four rules of innovation:

  1. Network innovation: innovation comes from without as well as within: i.e. not-invented-here can be good, or borrow/steal from the best?
  2. Design around the needs of the user: pursue simplicity; ease of use is an end in itself
  3. Ignore what the market says it wants today (sometimes), and gamble on the future
  4. Fail wisely: learn from your mistakes and try again.

 New components for the UIDM?
