Cutter Summit 2007: Innovation Panel

Rob AustinLee DevinFernando DuránMehmood Kahn

My favorite points
  • Rob Austin suggests a parallel between innovative business projects and theatrical productions, noting that a theatrical production is an iterative, creative process that has a definite delivery time: opening night. I like that point, even though I now have Cole Porter's "Another Opening Another Show" running through my head.
  • "People confuse formality and discipline." - Jim Highsmith
  • "CIOs now understand the need to do things iteratively. Now they're fighting battles with the institutional surroundings." "Iterative budgets for an iterative process." - Rob Austin
