Peter Sheahan on Innovation

Peter Sheahan on Innovation


Predicting Innovation with the mindset of today is like London in 1901; the city gathered all the Londoner intellectuals and politicians and they proposed for 1925 that they would need 1 million more horses. They had no faith in the idea of rapid adoption of the automobile which was taking place simultaneously. Clearly, the one million horses plan would never work out. Much like today, extracting value from intangible sources is and will continue to be the crux of business development. Peter Sheahan is the voice behind these wise words. Even he consistently states that it is impossible to know the future, but we must be prepared to innovate all the same.

Covering the widening demographic differences in life and work with familial anecdotes, Sheahan brings to life pressing issues about talent retention. For many, younger generations are viewed as needing to toughen up and play by established rules. Sheahan professes the opposite is true: firms should attract and foster youthful energy, for that is where the coming wave of innovation will start. This difference in management and control fundamentally changes the way business has been conducted for centuries. Sheahan warns this is coming sooner rather than later. Wouldn’t you want to be on the side of the innovators?
