Innovative Inference

Inference & Innovation Due to the fact that innovating in today’s digital world has become increasingly complex in nature. Often, organizations can no longer rely on a single individual or team to drive innovation. Innovation is not serendipitous, there is a logic behind any innovation effort. Digital innovation management is a system that can be fine-tuned in a structured way to improve its success rate.

Interdisciplinary Inference Due to the occurrence of increased economic integration, information permeation, technology underpinnings, the black and white boundaries continue to diminish in the 21st century. It’s important to deal with the nonlinear, multi-logical situation in today's digital dynamic, and understand the logic behind business scenes. Business logic today is often nonlinear or even paradoxical characterized by the movement of information, people, and businesses with the mixed structures, hyper diversity, volatility, unpredictability, and increased flux. Business management today needs to be interdisciplinary, informative, and innovative.

Unconventional Understanding The digital dynamic is where the continuous disruptions often led by emerging technologies threaten to tear down silo mentality, outdated concepts, legacy systems and practices just as it generates new opportunities. Nowadays business leaders and professionals feel more comfortable with the digital new normal - chaos, uncertainty, and ambiguity. They should break down conventional thinking boxes, improve sound judgment and discernment skills. Practicing unconventional thinking takes a certain mental, psychological and conditional chemistry to break away from thoughts that others have thought about and deepen their understanding of either existing or emerging issues. It takes courage, but it is a necessary step to take initiatives to spark creativity and make true progress either individually or collectively.

Innovative Inference "Intelligence" is from Latin word “intellego” -Inter-lego: Bind together, read between the lines, or connect the dots. Creativity is an innate thought process to connect the dots and generate innate ideas. Logic is a thinking process in which a result is derived from a thought. To untangle unprecedented complexity, we reach a stage to assess logic of everything: thoughts, language, actions. More specifically, logic, intelligence, and creativity, how do they interplay

Innovative Initiatives
Digital organizations are in the middle of a sea change. The definition of innovation is simple - to gain benefit by doing something different. Innovation is not “nice to have,” but “must-have” differentiate business competency, to gain a competitive advantage in the face of fierce competition and continuous disruptions often led by emerging technologies.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about #7500th blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The “Digital Master” book series includes 28 books to share insight from the multidimensional digital lens and perceive the multi-faceted impact the digital era upon us is making to businesses and society. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
