By Tim Sanders | May 01, 2018 | Comments Off

From blog posts to conference themes to magazine features, innovation is being touted as a top skill-set in this disruptive world we work in. It’s not simply a matter of locking yourself in a room and coming up with an idea, either. Innovation is defined as “when a solution successfully makes it way to market.”

For my entire career, I’ve studied innovation from several angles, and I’m here to tell you: It takes three steps to bring to life. Whether you analyze Elon Musk’s Tesla or funded contestants from the last episode of Shark Tank, they faithfully followed the 3 C’s of Innovation to the finish line... Read the full blog post here!

Why the future of energy is not what you think - Mike Walsh Podcast

By Mike Walsh | Mar 20, 2018 | Comments Off

It would be easy to imagine in this age of Teslas, Powerwalls, and Nest thermostats, that we are somehow on the brink of escaping traditional energy sources forever. Yet, oil, gas and coal persist - and continues to shape economies, nations and industrial policy. Dr. Kent Moors, a global expert on energy and a professor in the Graduate Center for Social and Public Policy at Duquesne University, where he directs the Energy Policy Research Group, has some ideas on why that may be. He has also had a fascinating life. You will hear how I try, unsuccessfully on a number of occasions, to get him to talk about his former life as a covert operative working for the State Department.

Why humans should stop making making so many decisions - Mike Walsh

To get to the bottom of that, I chatted with Jason Collins, a behavioral economist, who has written extensively on these ideas at the Behavioral Scientist, and currently runs the data science team at a major financial regulator. He previously co-led PwC Australia's behavioral economics practice.
