Eight Nations of Innovation

Rick-Warren-TEDxOCWhen does innovation become innovative? In a recent review, I stumbled across Rick Warren’s, talk from TEDxOrangeCoast. With innovation and discovery asking the right question is more important than the answer. He’s compiled a list of 8 questions everyone should ask. He calls them his 8 Nations of Innovation:

  • Determination – What do I need to stop/change?
  • Collaboration – How do we do it together?
  • Combination – How can we combine opposites?
  • Elimitation – What can we remove?
  • Reincarnation – What died that we can bring back to life?
  • Rejuvenation – How can we change purposes or motivation?
  • Illumination – How can we look with new light?
  • Fascination – How can we make it more interesting?
