From the 2015 Vault & The Innovation Engine Podcast’s Cutting Room Floor

For a special episode of The Innovation Engine podcast, we go back into the vault of 2015 episodes to find some never-before-aired innovation advice. The episode includes fresh takes from David J. Bland of Neo Innovate, author David Burkus of Oral Roberts University, Scott Anthony of Insight, and Mitch Ditkoff of Idea Champions.

David J. Bland, a pioneer in the Lean Startup movement, shares advice on what to do when testing results come back mixed or inconclusive. David Burkus, author of The Myths of Creativity, talks about why we’re all hard-wired to understand life through the power of story and why that can be a problem in the business world. Scott Anthony shares an anecdote about the Manila Water partnership and how it’s an example of an organization using a Minimum Viable Innovation System to great effect. Mitch Ditkoff tells a story meant to illustrate the importance of taking the road less traveled.

We’ll also share just a few examples of things that can go wrong during the course of recording an episode, with hiccups on recordings with Nir Eyal, Greg Bandeau, and Mitch Ditkoff. Last but not least, we put a bow on the episode with a reading of the email from November 2013 that launched The Innovation Engine podcast.
