CIL 2016 -Innovation & the Knowledge Ecosystem: Opening Keynote

Innovation & the Knowledge Ecosystem — Dave Snowden, Cognitive Edge  (presenter)

There are three necessary preconditions to innovation:

  1. Starvation
    1. A shortage of resources where usually there is abundance.
  2. Pressure
    1. An immediate and relentless demand for resolution of the scarcity – a changing world.
  3. Perspective Shift
    1. New ways of thinking about the problem.

  • How can libraries help others innovate more?
  • How can libraries gain new perspectives and types of thinking?
