Ed Bernacki  Innovationalist. Thought leader. Writer. Speaker.  

Ed Bernacki of The Idea Factory writes on innovation and management themes. Some of his insights and ideas on management, innovation, creativity and conference design are featured. His style is jargon and cliché free. 
This website lists many of his articles on these themes:
  1. Innovation, creativity and leadership 
  2. Do people think alike? Cognitive diversity 
  3. Public Sector Innovation 
  4. Conference and meeting design - the future is collaboration 
  5. Design Thinking as part of the innovationalist's tool kit. 

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.
