Sahil Thakkar
  1. What is innovation:

This video from MIT OpenCourseWare is a simple, brass-tacks introduction to innovation. It also goes over entrepreneurship-driven innovation and shows that it really is fundamental to business.

2. The Art of Innovation | Guy Kawasaki | TedX Berkeley:

This TED talk from American author, marketing specialist, and venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki underscores how innovation is more of an art than a science. Meaning that even though are specific, defined processes and layers to it, there’s also a a major element of it that involves giving in to your intuition, going with the flow, and seeing what emerges. Because in the end, it really is about being creative.

3. Our approach to innovation Is dead wrong | Diana Kander | TEDxKC:

In this TED talk, Diana Kander discusses how our existing approach to innovation is wrong and, at its core, fundamentally imbalanced. We need to take a look at innovation from a holistic, all-encompassing point of view and then and only then will we be able to implement it in an extensive, thorough, effective, and long-lasting way.

4.Innovative thinking—Can you be taught? Roberta B. Ness M.D., M.P.H. | TEDxHouston 2011:

In this talk, Roberta B. Ness talks about whether innovative thinking is something deeply ingrained in us or whether it can be taught. Some of the deepest questions about humanity always have been discussing which of our traits are inborn and which are external. It’s the nature vs. nurture debate. But ultimately, she states that innovation can indeed be taught. You just need the right tools and the right processes.

5. Diffusion of Innovation Theory: The Adoption Curve:

This video could be the most important of all. Because it goes over and above just the process of innovation and talks about how it actually plays out when implemented. It discusses how it comes down to the different types of people in society, from early adopters to late adopters to people who never hop on at all.

We hope these five amazing videos gave you more of an insight into innovation! Let us know which was your favorite and whether you want to see more!
