I am returning to a series that I started 10 years ago, called The New Visionaries. I’ll be interviewing innovators, inventors, artists, makers, and whoever else I think is fascinating. In the original series I interviewed folks like Chris Messina, John Hagel, Kris Gale, and many others.
The only constant will be my interest in thought leadership, which as I have said, is the only sustainable competitive advantage, nowadays. (I’ve attributed that phrase in the past to Bill Taylor, the founder of Fast Company, but I can’t find any reference to it in his works, so maybe I misheard what I wanted to hear.)
I’ll be trying to post at least two interviews a month once I get rolling, and I’ll post them either on Work Futures or Next Year’s Words, my new publication focused on rethinking research for the new economy. (It’s an interesting experiment, too, having a series run across different publications at different times.)
