Charting the innovation landscape
In the spirit of "A picture says more than a thousand words", I feel the need to come up with a graphical depiction of the innovation landscape; to recap some of the earlier ideas, to develop them further, and to cover new ground. Let's have a look.
Funding innovation – a broken cycle?

He is probably best known for having coined the term “disruptive innovation”, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. He developed a theory of economic growth that builds on three types of innovation: disruptive, sustaining, and efficiency innovations. Let’s see.
Taking a walk across the innovation landscape
Recently I have described my concept of an innovation landscape along two axes: the demand for innovation, represented by the problems society is faced with, and the supply of innovation, represented by the ingenious ideas that have the potential to solve those problems.
