Why multiple ideas from multiple sources help build innovation & what you need to start thinking about when deploying a collaborative whiteboarding solution.

In their book, Ideation: The Birth and Death of Ideas, Graham and Bachmann propose a host of ways individuals and organisations can innovate.  The list, by no means exhaustive, looks at the revolutionary ideas of Marxism which break away from rational thought, to serendipitous discoveries, like Penicillin, which happen by coincidence and to philosophical ideas which live, mostly, in the minds of the creator.

A story about 39 people on 5 continents in 40 spaces, trying to get stuff done.

I recently wrote on a blog post about how workforces are becoming more Nomadic, moving around more than ever before. I said something like:

Now, when we go into work it’s the norm to move from space to space so that we can interact and work with more and more people.

To help us understand how collaboration works in small, distributed teams, we caught up with Matt Johnston, a web designer based in California but working on the designing of a website and discussion forum with 2 other team members, one based in Ireland and the other in Europe.
