Slow innovation

Fast culture

Ford, S., & Tarditi, F. R. (2017, June 26). The Benefits of Taking a Slower Approach to Innovation. Harvard Business Review.

  • Trendspotters who monitor social data to achieve a rapid response to an emerging trend

Slow culture

  • Pattern recognition, which observes trends that are occurring beyond the horizon to which organisations are not able to transform immediately
  • Long term view and persistent planning

From vision to reality

Benefits of contributing to the OERu Innovation Partnership:

Sharing costs is an economic imperative

Pooling resources creates a significant boost in capacity

Participating in partnerships with like-minded institutions creates innovations on a scale that would not be possible working alone
