Chat #77 – Recovering Scientist Helps Organizations Improve Their Influence, Impact & Innovation Efforts

Josef Martens PhD CSP helps organizations move their innovation efforts from good to great. Having completed his PhD in physics at the University of Cambridge, he was awarded several patents in the field of OLEDs (the materials that are used for high-end TV and phone displays). One of his patents was the first one to describe how the displays can be made to show the full-color range instead of just one color. The company he and his colleagues founded on the basis of these patents became the first spin-off company from the University of Cambridge that went through an IPO. It was later bought for US$ 285 million.
During the chat, we spoke about his background, innovation and how we as CEOs and business owners can incorporate that into our lives and our businesses and who are the people that do innovation the best.
Some of the questions that we discussed:
  • Tell us your background and why you decided to start your business? (this could be related to innovation)
  • Tell us a little about what you do? (products/services)
  • Define innovation for us
  • What are some of the people that do innovation well? (e.g. Steve Jobs) Why do they do it well?
  • How can I create a culture in my company to be more innovative? Benefits (e.g. employee engagement)?
  • What skills are necessary for innovation?
  • How can we become more innovative on a daily basis?
  • What are 2 or 3 practical things that I can do today to be more innovative in my company?
  • Anything additional to tell our readers or listeners? (could be related to influence)
