1 April 9, 2015 Innovation Everywhere NACFAM Annual Conference Stephen Ezell, Director, Global Innovation Policy Information Technology and Innovation Foundation

2 2 ITIF is a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that seeks to design novel innovation policies and examine how innovation will create new opportunities to boost economic growth and improve quality of life. We focus on:  Innovation “verticals”: energy, life sciences, telecom, manufacturing, and Internet and IT transformation  Innovation “horizontals”: trade, tax, talent, and tech policy  “Innovation economics” as an alternative to mainstream economics

5 Innovation—The improvement of existing or the creation of entirely new products, processes, or services. (The Economist) Innovation—The transformation of existing conditions into preferred ones. (John Kao) 5 What is Innovation?

6 Why didn’t Western Union buy the telephone? Why didn’t Kodak commercialize the digital camera? Why didn’t IBM keep the operating system? Why didn’t Microsoft create the browser? Why didn’t AT&T create AOL? Why didn’t Sears create Wal-Mart? Why didn’t American Airlines create Southwest? Why didn’t Citibank create Paypal? It takes effort to stand in the future and see new possibilities. Just because you aren’t willing to disrupt your own business, doesn’t mean somebody isn’t willing to do it for you. Many companies don’t sense the need to innovate until it’s too late. Innovation Isn’t Easy…Some Puzzles to Ponder… 6
