The three-body problem: chaos at innovation

First of all, let me wish you a happy and interesting 2016. As I warned you, I might write some more about the Physics of Innovation. The idea behind this series is to relate well-known physics theorems or phenomena with innovation activities, in order to use them as inspiration or means for reflection.

Let me start this second post with a question: Would you say that innovation is a random or a deterministic process? I will elaborate some more on this, because I believe that the correct answer would be a third one, innovation is a chaotic process.

Innovation wormholes

I am a physicist by training, a manager by trade and an innovator by practice. A few days ago I was able to link together these aspects of my life when I was invited to participate as a speaker at the Innovation Day (www.eldiadelainnovacion.es) organised by Actitud Creativa in Madrid. My talk used the concept of wormholes in relation with Innovation and the idea was well received, so I thought it would be nice to post it here to reach more people that could be inspired by it. I have other such relations in mind, so this post can be the first of a series where I will try to link well known Physics concepts with innovation situations or challenges, the “Physics of Innovation” we may call it.
