Creating an innovation culture

It’s not just the Devil you know

In this episode Mat talks about the inherent psychology that holds many of us back. As a practitioner (rather than an academic) Mat understands that in the real world, we all have to keep our fingers on the pulse of the current market conditions, the current competitors and so on, but, to do so at the exclusion of thinking beyond those boundaries is a dangerous oversight. In fact, this oversight can be seen plainly by some of the biggest, most successful companies in history. A very easy example would be Nokia, the once global leader in mobile handsets. Or another could be Blockbuster who turned down the chance to buy Netflix for just $50 million… Best of all, these examples and this episode boil it all down to a level that can be related to any size of business. So, if you’re in business and refuse to be average, if you want to create a legacy of innovation, integrity and achievement in every aspect of your life, this podcast is for you.

The Three Shackles

In this episode Mat walks you through the 3 Shackles; the things that hold most businesses back in terms of innovation. As always, Mat starts with a look in the mirror and shows how we are all usually part of the problem (at some level) when we often believe we are part of the solution. This episode can be transformational. It touches on the elements of Module 1 of Mat’s Masterclass and offers incredible insight for those who are willing and open minded. So, if you’re in business and refuse to be average, if you want to create a legacy of innovation, integrity and achievement in every aspect of your life, this podcast is for you.

The Three Shackles

Bureaucracy, Barriers and BS

In this episode Mat talks about the three things that turn him off in business. The things that sabotage most businesses potential and unwittingly cause many to fail. As the title of this episode suggests; these are bureaucracy, barriers and BS. Nearly every business suffers one or more of these from time to time or, maybe they are an ingrained part of the culture already. What’s important is that they are not tolerated. They must be stamped out and, this means leading by example, regardless of your rank in the hierarchy. So, if you’re in business and refuse to be average, if you want to create a legacy of innovation, integrity and achievement in every aspect of your life, this podcast is for you.

How Tesla Disrupted the Car Industry

https://go.mathewlock.com/rocking-the-ship-free-pdf-ebook

In this episode Mat talks about an everyday business practice that actually has its roots in Catholic Church's history; you probably know it as playing ‘devil's advocate’. And without being ironic, Mat challenges this premise based on its prevalence and overuse in most businesses today, coupled with an allied lack of innovation. Mat introduces you to the notion of Angels Advocate ad walks you through the few simple steps involved with implementing this into your daily life. The results can be liberating and this is something that you will definitely want to try!

How Spotify destroyed iTunes How Spotify destroyed iTunes

How Spotify destroyed iTunes In this episode Mat takes you on a journey of real business innovation by telling the story of how three guys from Sweden (and outside of the music industry) schooled the once mighty innovation poster child, Apple. Not surprisingly, he talks about Spotify in this episode and how they became the Nightmare Competitor of one of the first trillion dollar companies in the world. What’s interesting is how relatable this case study can be for any business owner or manager.

What does your Nightmare Competitor look like?

In this episode Mat builds on the inherent risks of industry convergence (the ‘me too’ syndrome) and offers considered insights into some of this decades real innovation success stories. But he does this from the perspective of a Nightmare Competitor, the ones that render the traditional industry competitors helpless. Using examples such as Netflix and Uber, Mat then takes a deeper dive into the Tesla case study, as it pertains to business innovation. You don’t have to be a ‘petrol head’ to enjoy this story of modern day David and Goliath (and how it relates to all of us in business).
