Scott Belsky

Author "Making ideas happen"

Execution of ideas

Most ideas do not happen

New idea = energy boost

After, comes execution, Project plateau, Lower energy, So we start a new idea, We never push ideas to the end


Gravitational force of operations, Back to day-to-day routine, Project left aside

Not well organized enough, Personal, Network

Lack of leadership

Life centered on digital devices




Computers need to evolve

Gap, Physical world, Digital world

Access to info is difficult, Meeting ppl, Any email from that person?, Personal info?, Anything I was supposed to send her / do?, Buying in a shop and searching for info online, Get smartphone out, Get to website, Look up reference

Form factor has not changed

Design did not evolve

Same elements, Screen, Keyboard, OS

Same way to interact w/ technology

Reinventing form factor



Think out of the box

==> the 6th sense, Recognize what is in front of you, Projects info, Video from TED

==> siftables, Blocks, Tiny computer, Sense, Other blocks, Movement, Direct manipulation of data, ==> now sold as products, Hasbro as ScrabbleFlash, Sifteo

==> Luminar, Interactive surface underneath, Totally replaces computer

==> Sparsh, Use body as data storage, Touch info, Copied on finger, Next time you touch it pastes info, Actually uses the cloud to store info

Hannah McBain

Main challenges in organizations

Lure of status quo

Creativity only for certain ppl as per function

Overcoming challenges

Give a sense of direction, Understand customer if the future, Define biggest priorities, Specify end value, Tools, Scenario planning, Benefit mapping, Identify expected benefits, List enablers

Define what creative is, Values, Outcome

Create culture of permission

Creativity is not enough

Presentations existed before PowerPoint

Death by PowerPoint

Not used the right way, Forces us focus on wrong thing, Templates


Look at the past

Tech has changed a lot

Humans did not, Impact of stories, Visuals, Using space, Empty spaces, Gives power, Contrast, Focal point, We notice, What's different, Movement


Ideas do not come from laptops - J Cleese

Go low tech

Start analog, Paper, Pen, ...

Stickyness, "Made to stick", SUCCESS, Simplicity, Unexpected, Concrete, Emotion, Story, Conflict, Change, Contrast, A to B

Exclusion, Enough, Not too simple!




Beginer's mind, Put expertise aside, Ok to make mistakes, Empathy
