Is digital technology we see emerging today going to be able to provide the positive tension between rational and randomness that takes place in our innovation activities today?
Will digital begin to dominate our innovation thinking, will we lose this randomness, this spark of human creativity or will it be allowing this to connect multiple strands in new, more exciting ways?
