Borison covers the need to challenge your thinking and be creative when trying to innovate in your organisation. The article highlights actual examples that show how this works in the most radical and diverse way. To take another example, we can now 3d print items used in surgery and prototype products that a year ago would not be possible.

The challenge is to not let yourself be constrained by existing industry sector knowledge but think outside health and see how quickly technology can be utilised to deliver expert patient care. Pull together different people in your organisation and beyond to bring about thought diversity. This will enable you to identify gaps in your knowledge and understand from a different perspective that what you consider may be a problem, could not even be a problem to a patient.

Try out the approach in your organisation and see what happens.
