Johnnie Moore reblogs sections of Roland Harwood’s post on the importance of location for open innovation clusters and offers the quintessentially Johnnie aphorism that we must strive to notice more, and change less. Build on what’s there; don’t reinvent it.

At a personal level, as someone with a fervid desire to change the world at every available opportunity, this resonates as an almost spiritual truism!

At a professional level, as I try to help The Chartered Institute for IT to catalyse a ‘metacluster’ of technology innovation capability across the UK, our success depends upon it.

Roland is right. We need new, more humanistic collaborative approaches which bridge the location-irrelevance of skills and the location-dependence of culture, heritage and social energy. When people meet, noticing can happen. Noticing is a precursor to lasting change.
