A new vocation philosophy ,  nor MOOC’s is the new education disruptors.  

According to the economist  http://bit.ly/1nn4tX9  a desperately deeded and sought for refreshment of vocational education is the answer to the changes of current times. 

"In a new e-book Clayton Christensen, of Harvard Business School, and Michelle Weise, of the Christensen Institute, argue that this presages a revolution: students will be able to take courses that provide them with essential skills quickly and cheaply. The great disrupter of higher education will not be MOOCs (massive online open courses), they insist: these mostly focus on delivering standard academic education over the internet and suffer from drop-out rates of up to 95%. Rather, it will be a new approach to learning which makes plenty of use of the internet but ties education more closely to work. The emphasis on competences rather than subjects will make vocational education better suited to post-industrial economies. It will also challenge the dominance of universities as students realise that they no longer have to amass huge debts in order to acquire marketable skills."

Commentary : as much as I love MOOC’s,  I have to say that from my own experience initiating and designing the BABA (Bezalel Alumni Business Accelerator)  which is part of the Do-Be project (Design Oriented Business Entrepreneurship)  Do-Be.org the gap between heightened experiences of possibility and increased production complexity demand such programs add the article suggests.  It’s not an easy thing to promote such programs even in creative establishments,  such as design schools,  so I think in areas of conventional education,  the forward looking vocation will be quit a challenge..  But that’s what’s disrupteneurs are for  :-)

'Knee defender' causing chaos on flights

Today’s disrupteneur award goes to the makers of the knee defender.  A vicious little gadget that causes serious headache to airlines,  and might even cause them to reconsider their minimum leg room strategy.  

A tiny clip,  that prevents lowering the seat in front of you in a plane is behind some serious on board mayhem. Anyway causing planes to shift course after fights are starting on board between squeezed up passengers.

Commentary : I think the integrated approach is much more interesting,  and by far more challenging.  The challenge is not only operational but also conceptual.  The idea of integration can be a disruptive mind set for the years to come.  
Perhaps like the locomotion a be the idea of speed,  and mechanics

Creating a software engineering group becomes key to closing experience gaps…. If you can’t join them band them

Summary: And closing the experience gaps — performance, convenience, personalization, and trust — requires a different mindset.

Commentary :
Is no doubt that holistic approach towards production and products is becoming every me important.
The reason is of course mass competition and the rapidness of current business evolutions.
The generic to-do’s are good to give direction of concern, but the rules for instant success are often to simplistic and instant.
Grouping a team, or better a band is not an easy task and truth be told, doesn’t always work. But I guess that’s part of the experience all.

Disruptive innovations in complex product systems industries: A case study

Ozgur DedehayirTomi NokelainenSaku J. Mäkinen

Abstract

We propose that disruptive changes pertaining to complex product systems (CoPS) will yield a different set of characteristics than those traditionally observed for commodity products, and seek evidence for this proposition in a case study of the Flash Converting technology, a disruptive CoPS innovation in the copper production industry. Our results show that unlike disruptions in commodity product industries, the incumbent CoPS technology does not overshoot mainstream market performance demand. Also, the disruptive CoPS innovation; (i) is not nurtured in low-end niche markets, (ii) initially satisfies mainstream market performance demand, and (iii) has higher unit price than the incumbent technology.

The Emotional Turmoil of a Dedicated Innovator | Inc.com

It’s a good thing that the pains of being an innovator or better worse a disrupteneur, are acknowledged.

I think that the more artisan we become in the developed economies the more accepted these growing pains will be. And more discussion will be attuned towards telling these stories as well, besides the Cinderella stories more commonly told in regards to entrepreneurs.

The reason these stories are imprimatur important is because they tell the real story of trial and error or tried and tested. And this is where important knowledge awaits being picked up.

Why China Will Lead Innovation in Social and Mobile Commerce

In the past, many innovations originated in the West and spread to the rest of the world. But this is about to change. We expect to see more innovations in social and mobile commerce coming from China. And they will reshape the global business landscape.
