I think there is a fourth component - collaboration - that you are likely overlooking because social media has become like breathing to you. In theory this might fit into your first category (daily interactions), which is largely categorized as email and face-to-face.

On occasion take a look at your blog comment stream and Tweet reply count as you float your ideas publicly. This is another good metric for your personal innovation index.

Hi Steve

Yes, you're right. The social thing has become so embedded in my daily work life that I don't really think about it so much any more.

Good point!

Thanks for putting to words items that I have often felt a innate knowing of inside but found it hard to communicate.

I'm sure there are many out there that feel the same.



Its a good detailed article on innovation behavior i must agreed with chuck's discussion.

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
