True disruptive change requires a change in thinking within individuals and organizations alike but could be the key to continuing the cycle of creative problem solving that can maintain long-term system growth.
A formal solution analysis process is necessary because many IFRs do not reach fruition because they remain abstract concepts and are never clearly stated. The following five stages of IFR generation, have been adopted here and modified to focus on creating TSoT-style IFR.
- State an IFRas a hypothesis.
- Define the value addressed by this new IFR.
- Generate different possible futures assuming the IFR.
- Shape these futures into a single concept.
- Develop language to explain the concept as simply as possible.
Developing a disruptive mindset and learning to think in terms of disruptive change as an individual will help to build systems that can function and produce in the constantly changing current day markets in all aspects of the value chain.
