Innovation and the Future of Mobile, with Horace Dediu

Horace Dediu joins us for the 22nd episode of “The Innovation Engine” podcast to discuss innovation and the future of mobile – what the post-mobile world will look like, how Apple, Google, and others are shaping the mobile experience of the future, and the next frontiers of mobile after health and fitness. Horace Dediu is a noted Apple analyst, prolific writer, and since 2010 the driving force behind Asymco, an innovative independent consultancy that stands the traditional consulting model on its head.

Horace’s main outlet online is the Asymco website, where he writes on a wide range of topics. Along with Moises Chiullan, Horace hosts The Critical Path, a talk show contemplating the causality of success and failure in the evolving story of mobile computing and related industries. He was also a student of innovation guru Clay Christensen at the Harvard Business School. In this episode of the podcast, we look at the broad overall topic of where mobile is going, and why mobile as we know it will come to be about much more than just smartphones. We discuss what mobile will mean in 5 – 10 years, who the major players in this post-mobile world will be, and what opportunities for innovation might emerge in the marketplace. Other highlights from the conversation include:

  • What we learned about the Apple New Product Process, or ANPP, from Leander Kahney’s book on Jony Ive
  • Why we are just scratching the surface of what will be possible in the health care space
  • Horace’s thoughts on the recent dustup in the innovation community over Jill Lepore’s New Yorker article on Clayton Christensen
  • Other “white spaces” Horace sees that are ripe for disruptive innovation, including education industry and transportation
