Our small group of bloggers who focus on soci-economic application of innovation concepts, have agreed...

.....that there are five dimensions, attributes or characteristics of innovation that we want to improve our thinking on in 2021.  And the others have asked me to share that in this first blog posting of this New Year.

So, here goes...

1. Innovations that illustrate "C.A.R.E.S.S " :  We want to explore ways that innovations that have features which improve convenience, affordability, reliability, effectiveness, simplicity and/or service are found-these may disrupt incumbent ways or create entirely new ways of doing things.

2. Innovations that enhance H.O.P.E.:  We want to become smarter and more in tune to innovations that have features which enhance helping other people excel, for the economic woes of 2020 will not subside quickly.

3. Innovations that promote PROGRESS: We are particularly interested in innovative ways to strengthen progress in general and particularly amongst the underserved segments of communities in 2021, especially after such unrest that was witnessed in 2020.

4. Innovations that enable maintaining MOMENTUM:  Some innovations aimed at helping people and organizations maintain their current momentum, making hard-earned progress more systematic, will be of interest to us in 2021.

5. Innovations that increse the spread of applicable KNOWLEDGE:  If knowledge is truly power, then perhaps the applicaton of knowledge and ease of its being accessed makes pwoer more practical.  So, innovations that enable sharing helpful apllicable resources effectively will be of interest to us.

There you have it.  A simple list of 2021 resolutions for focusing that we hope will help us better understand how innovation can help recovery from the health, economic, societal, political and educational disruption of 2020.
