Scaling Innovation:  Whiteboards versus Maps

I love watching the NBA’s Golden State Warriors play basketball. Their offensive “improvisation” is a thing of beauty in their constant ball movement in order to find the “best” shot. They are a well-oiled machine optimizing split-second decisions in an ever-changing landscape that is heavily influenced by questions such as:Who is my defender?What are the strengths of my defender?From where is help likely to come if I make a move to the basket?Who is likely to be open if help does come?Who has…See More

Disposable Technology: A Concept Whose Time Has Come

Imagine…imagine that you have been challenged to play Steph Curry, the greatest 3-point shooter in the history of the National Basketball Association, in a game of 1x1.  Yea, a pretty predictable outcome for 99.9999999% of us.But now image that Steph Curry has to wear a suit of knight’s armor as part of that 1x1 game.  The added weight, the obstructed vision, and the lack of flexibility, agility and mobility would probably allow even the average basketball player to beat him.Welcome to today’s…See More
