    After attending our workshop on innovation I found it interesting to hear innovation discussed on The Science Show a few days later (http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/scienceshow/innovation-in-australia-part-3-of-3-e28093-getting-to-where-/4507052). The take-home message was that collaboration is key to turning ideas into innovation. Mark Dodgson spoke about collaboration between academia and industry in the context of scientific innovation, but the general principles apply in all cases.

    Good and active participation during the session. Suggestions that captured my attention include CREATING Space for Ideas/Thoughts, Iteration of Ideas, Focus on Output rather than Inputs, promote interaction for innovation, Value Addition. Looking forward to the next Meetup.

    Great job all round. The presentation by Adrian was slick and set up the group nicely for some well thought out discussion. The games really helped to get everyone in the creative mind set. For those in my group, the concept that I could not name, that is used by aid agencies is Positive Deviance. Quote from wikipedia 'Positive Deviance is an approach to behavioral and social change based on the observation that in any community, there are people whose uncommon but successful behaviors or strategies enable them to find better solutions to a problem than their peers, despite facing similar challenges and having no extra resources or knowledge than their peers. These individuals are referred to as positive deviants.' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positive_Deviance.
