Magnus Penker on Innovation
Adapt or die. That’s a summation of the evolutionary theory known as the Red Queen Effect. Under certain environmental conditions, some organisms must remain in a state of continuously adaptation or their entire species will face extinction. That’s eerily similar to the situation faced by organizations trying to stay profitable under the current global economic picture. Innovate or be disrupted.
The name of the Red Queen Effect comes from a character in “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” The Red Queen told Alice, “Here, you see, it takes all the running you can do to keep in the same place.” Many people forget that Lewis Carroll, the creator of Alice and the Red Queen, was the nom de plume for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a respected 19th-century mathematician with keen insights into chaotic systems.
