Diversity of Perspective is Key to Disruptive Innovation
Rick Mueller, Student (University), United States, SIG Leader
“All new ideas are combinations of old ideas, but not all idea combinations are created equal,” writes Frans Johannsen.

A HBR article by Johansson tells how Mick Pearce designed the Eastgate office building in Harare, Zimbabwe. He based it on techniques he observed termites employ to stabilize the internal temperature of their nests. Remarkably, the Eastgate maintains an ambient temperature between 73-78°F despite variances in external temperatures from 58-88°F. And the building uses only 10% of the energy needed by a similar, airco cooled building.

Johannsen argues in his book that most innovation comes at the intersection of fields, and Pearce's building is just one example.
