The 5 Faces

With their abilities to energise, delight, morph, disrupt, and revive traditional norms, these 5 Innovation Managers are positioned at the bleeding edge of innovation.

The Practivist
I energise you

I am an engaged member of the civil society, and I ally my activism with my professional practice. This dual activity and its tensions generate a strong and mutual dynamic, affecting my practices and you.
The Nouveau Flâneur

The Nouveau Flâneur
I bring you marvels

Driven by my curiosity and flair for abductive logic, I wander the streets and explore your backyard. I embrace chance - I celebrate it, share it generously, and live for the thrill of a brisk
instance of magic.
The Anti-solutioner

The Anti-solutioner
I disrupt you

I disrupt your problem-solving mindset based culture. I question your entire logic and system where these problems emerged, as I experience the world from a holistic angle.
The Morphogenesis

The Morphogenist
I morph for you

I morph from one role to another according to the environments and challenges I am faced with. I also connect different worlds, building cross-disciplinary networks and mediating them. My fluid identity positions me at the boundaries and collision
points of innovation.

The Phoenix

The Phoenix
I revive you

I combust the status quo so that new ideas can arise from its remains. Through prototyping and iteration, I confront challenges by destroying established systems and re-creating new ones.
