Imagine the awe and wonder. What would you experience if – having lived your entire life to this moment confined to a two-dimensional plane – in an instant you were propelled into an entirely new and other world, one in which there were three dimensions? A world of spheres instead of circles. Transformation. Never again would things be the same.
With this essay, we embark on a journey. A journey that propels us into new dimensions of insight. A journey that will consume the next several essays as we develop a simple conceptual framework, a model to guide our reflection on innovation. A framework that will help us gain new insight into the epistemology of breakthrough innovation.
