Addressing “The 2pt5” percent the innovators requires to stay ahead of the innovation curve. I think. That’s why I choose a new way WordPress offers to publish this blog. “Gutenberg” is the new block editor that makes working much easier. But as a page builder it is very much located in the beginning of the innovation diffusion curve.

With all the consequences.

Pro:

  • the new features help a distinct group to work eg from everywhere and use mobile solutions (I am writing and will publish this text via my smartphone)
  • using the new supports the development and spreading it beyond the first to use it

Con:

  • available features will necessarily be restricted
  • established products will almost always have more functionality

There are good reasons not to use the new. “Nobody will be fired for selecting McKinsey/IBM as consultants or technology” can still be true. But picking up the new and unknown has definitely potential to propel change.

This is not an actual episode of The 2pt5 podcast. I included this video into the new series of “Innovators out there” as innovator Robert “RJ” Scaringe and people from his team are talking about starting their company. And I think there is something to learn from this official Rivian video.
