Three Secret Weapons Of Innovation

Sensemaking: "Sensemaking involves the ongoing retrospective development of plausible visuals that rationalize what people are doing. Using a visual language to help unfold as a sequence in which people concerned with identity in the social context of other actors engage ongoing circumstances from which they extract cues and make plausible sense retrospectively.

Weak Signals: "This is about the strategic management of surprising and potentially impactful (not necessarily bad) events, or call it card management system. Wild cards refer to sudden and unique incidents that can constitute turning points in the evolution of a certain trend."

Futuretyping: "It is about prototyping different strategic futures. It is a far more effective method than scenario planning. It allows the key stakeholders to be able to touch a tangible future and create excitement so they can channel their energy and imagination."
