Philosophy on writing for insight: People innovate, not organizations 
Creativity starts when an individual pursues a solution to a puzzling challenge. Innovation is led by people. It is more insightful to write about how people think, solve problems and make decisions for change rather than make generalizations that refer to how 3M or Apple innovate. 

The golden rule for innovation  
There is a golden rule for innovation:  Talking about innovation and expecting to be innovative is as effective as talking about physical fitness and expecting to be fit. It is what you do that makes you physical fit. It is what you do that makes you innovative.
