TRIPLE III TIME: Innovation Tracking

Innovation Tracking has unofficially been one of my career life hobbies.  It started years ago when I thought the world should have/create a National Center for Public Sector Innovation (NCPSI).  I appreciated the great group of co-workers and work colleagues that joined my hobby from a distance.  Interestingly NCPSI development activities went much further than anyone but me expected!  However it was one of those concepts that was a little ahead of its time…so it faded.

But today think about how people make it a practice…even a service to follow/track trends.  There are society, fiscal, political, medical trends…and the list goes on.  Often they reveal interesting economic growth patterns or changes in how people act, vote, etc.  So how about we apply this style of activity and begin a special “creativity movement” and have “followers” participate in Innovation Tracking!

beaconWe would begin by simply applying Innovation Tracking to individuals.  Could they report that they have tried an innovative new practice in their world of work…weekly?  How about observing innovative change…large or small in the product/service they offer?  Next, how about if people tracked innovation in their community?  A new walking path…a new voting process…a new/alternative downtown…or just an alternative cooperative music/performance get together.

Because of what I do and who I am personally…I do Innovation Tracking all the time.  I review innovation organizations online, belong to innovation “groups”, and try to initiate some form of innovative practice with those I work with and even in my personal life…everyday…yes EVERYDAY!

Try it.  Don’t make Innovation Tracking harder than it is.  Do it in an effort to see more positivity and commit to a belief that there is ALWAYS A BETTER WAY!
