Learn how to address the risks and threats that can inhibit innovation.
Innovation intensive undertakings require a special focus on the larger pockets of uncertainty that may doom the prospects of success. By acquiring the essential know-how of chemical engineering, the research chemist is prepared to analyze his project as a whole and to successfully identify and rank-order the pockets of uncertainty that constitute a threat for his project. In this short overview talk, we address the question of how to identify, measure, monitor, and rationally tackle, reduce and eventually eliminate these pockets. We equate uncertainly with risk and with innovation work-load. We describe how to use cost uncertainty as a metric for risk, on one hand, and as a means to quantify innovation work-load on the other hand. We outline the latest protocols for a success innovation project – so fundamentally different from a minimum-innovation project – however expensive, however durable. We run through the “Try Again” Network, which offers an innovation map to capture, describe, and prosecute the innovation challenges ahead.
