The Crucible – Solve for X

September 2019

Leaders in new product development cannot rely on existing manufacturing limitations to determine what can and cannot be made five, ten or twenty years from now. Each assumption runs the risk of becoming a missed opportunity. Instead, just as we forecast change in markets and societies to innovate effectively, we need to imagine the evolution of our tools as well.”

The leaves are changing color in my neck of the woods. Which reminds me how much I love the woods. Which reminds me to remind you: there’s still time to apply your innovative skills to fight forest fires with Promethean Fire—technology, that is. Indeed, several opportunities are closing. Check ‘em out!

Speaking of Prometheus… So, he got in trouble because he gave fire to mortals “and from it they’d make many things.” Or something to that effect. Imagine if he’d given them 3D printers? Our innovators have incredibly diverse expertise that lets us make all sorts of stuff. Some of those technologies, like 3D printing, enable whole new value chain creation according to an outstanding article by Kate Stephenson, PhD. We’d love to hear your expert insights into the value of emerging technologies for business leaders and R&D.
