A few words along the way from Joel Barker
Our goal with the film Tactics of Innovation has been to introduce an approach that individuals and groups can use to increase the chances of accepting new ideas. The film is based on studies conducted by James Bright and my own adjustments to his results. Together, James and I have been studying the subject for more than 60 years.
New ideas and innovation are one of life's great quirks: We all enjoy the benefits of new ideas (we love our phones and microwaves) and at the same time we resist them. We do this for logical reasons - emotional, cultural and intellectual. The fundamental reason why we reject change is that it disturbs the delicate balance between new and old - a balance we struggle to maintain at work and in private life.
This resistance, no matter how logical, can be softened. Tactics of Innovation offers a strong approach that anyone can use. By incorporating the tactics into your specific situation - convincing a new company structure, presenting a new candidate or a life-saving invention - the obstacles between your idea and the potential users of the idea can be removed. The idea is closer to acceptance.
As always, I wish you all the best for you and your future.
