On the TEDx Graz, which took place Nov 6th 2015, Michael spoke about: Innovation factor “people” – How we can get more out of our ideas. (find the talk here)
Innovation means to create something useful and “new”. This usually requires the interaction between different people. However, our different characteristics thereby often unconsciously get in our way. Based on the works of innovation pioneer Robert B. Rosenfeld, Michael Siegmund shows how our complex inner structures affect innovation processes and how we can/could achieve more innovation and better results.
