Welcome to the CATS3000 Innovation Realm.
I’ve been a researcher at the Centre for Research in Innovation Management (CENTRIM) for over twenty-five years. CENTRIM has been fascinated with how innovation happens and how it can be created, supported and managed.
Here you can find my own writings and resources for leaders an d facilitators of innovation.
Back in the 1990s I co-authored a book called Technosophy, and many of the ideas are drawn from that.
Gazing, Process Gestures and Innovation – a very unique “natural” approach to innovation
DAWWAW Panels – a tool for approving and scrutinising innovation
Ideas that are Too Bright For Their Own Good – a look a devil’s advocacy
New Directions in Innovation

Innovation and Process Thinking
Each of the following looks at processes, change and innovation, drawing on nature. They provide a very unique and different way to look at innovation and change. Each has an observation, an explanation, a story and most have an activity. Read them in order and you’ll also get a metaphorical walk by the sea!
