Innovation is a fascinating and often misunderstood concept when it comes to business and business operations, but not for today’s guest, innovation specialist David K. Martin.

Host James Scotland gets into an engaging and enjoyable deep dive with David on what innovation means for business and what businesses need to do to thrive through innovation. The two address the benefits and challenges of business innovation and what it means for the future of business.

Among many issues, the two discuss:

  • what is innovation?
  • is R&D the same as innovation?
  • the exciting options of the semiconductor industry
  • is Australia good at innovation?
  • what does innovation mean for boards of directors and managers?
  • what are the ‘emerging industries’?
  • how do businesses become innovative?
  • what is leadership at the speed of leadership? (what does this mean?)
  • innovation in asset management or in soft assets
  • the joy of precedented vs unprecedented.

This is a fascinating and timely conversation, not to be missed.
