Revel Panel Demystifies Innovation & Creativity

Revel's Industry REVELations Panel Series Discusses the Key Trends Accelerating the Pace of Innovation and Creativity

KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Innovation experts discussed how to tap into innovation and creativity at Revel Consulting's Industry REVELations Expert Panel on July 8th at Revel's Headquarters in Kirkland, Wash.

The panel included Erik Hedberg who is a Co-Founder of Moment Lens Co., Mike Kemery who is a Co-Founder and the President of Makerhaus and Ryan R. Rosensweig who is a member of the Design & Discovery team within the Service and Experience Group at Nordstrom. The panel was moderated by Revel Manager Stan Nicholl.

Four underlying themes emerged from the panel discussion: Barriers to innovation are falling like dominoes; spaces, incentives and ownership are key ingredients to a culture of innovation; access to innovative tools are increasingly available at everyone's fingertips; and innovation is unpredictable.

"Access to technology, capital expertise and time have all been disrupted in several ways," said Stan Nicholl, Revel Manager. "Those were all once barriers to innovation, and they've all been falling like dominoes."

Meanwhile, leading organizations are discovering the 'triple crown' for fostering innovation in-house. This includes carving out creative spaces, providing the "right" incentives and establishing clear initiative ownership.

"Despite organizations embedding innovation and creative initiatives in-house, the tools needed to go from idea to reality are increasingly at everyone's fingertips," Nicholl said. "Innovation truly does begin with 'I'."

Advancements in at-home manufacturing techniques (such as 3D printing) along with community-oriented D.I.Y. 'maker-spaces' and the disintegrating human-digital divide in user-interfaces are primary examples of this.

"These various trends converging at the same time is unlocking an entire slough of things we can't even imagine, yet," said Nicholl. "Despite our innate desires to forecast future innovations, we never truly know what will strike next. That's what's most exciting about being in the game of innovation and creativity."

The underlying themes, which emerged in the discussion, have been condensed into a Countdown to Innovation & Creativity.

The Industry REVELations Expert Panel Series provides a forum for Revel associates, clients and forward-thinking executives to discuss market trends, share insights and build meaningful relationships to accelerate micro-innovation.
