Being Out Front
What does it take to be innovative? Most people find it pretty hard to be at the front of the pack. Everett Rogers in his description of the Diffusion of Innovation described Innovators as VENTURESOME and says that only 2.5% of the population of any defined group will be able to carry that load. It is really hard to truly be on the cutting edge, to be creating the new evidence for the rest of us to follow. It takes a risk-taker to throw some caution to the wind and be inventive.
