personHaydn Shaughnessy event

The concept of a minimum viable product (MVP) is now pervasive. But it is not the only way to think about market development for new products. What’s the right way to be entrepreneurial, especially if you work in a highly regulated industry like finance?

Should large companies be looking to act like a startup? Sure, but like everything in business, the simple idea carries important nuances.

Design thinking is more than just innovation. It is a broadly based approach to solving problems. But does it go far enough in humanising the world around us? Hack and Craft talked to one of the leaders of the design thinking movement in Europe, Arne Van Oosterom.

Manifesto: The Innovation Economy
personHaydn Shaughnessy event

For the past 6 years Hack and Craft has been building products for startups and helping corporations to launch new ventures. During this time we have helped create new enterprises worth hundreds of millions of pounds, but we have also seen many teams flounder and fail. The range of teams and the problems they address is too wide to determine any recipe for success, but we have observed some basic ingredients which are common to all disruptive innovations. The main pattern in the successful teams is a very high level of interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing. It seems that an essential ingredient for viable innovation is always the synthesis of knowledge from different perspectives. With this in mind we hope H&C News will provide a forum for this knowledge sharing and help foster the innovation opportunities that arise from it. Harry McCarney MD, Hack & Craft
