The Jazz Process to innovation with Adrian Cho

Adrian Cho Jazz process to innovation podcast

Why do people tip up to six times more than they already have paid? How do people deal with adversity? What do Jazz and Business have in common?

Adrian Cho Jazz process to innovation podcast

Today we are in Ottawa (Canada) talking to Adrian Cho, ex-IBM consultant, book author, wildlife photographer, artistic director of the Ottawa Jazz Orchestra, bass player and creative director of syncspace. 

We talk about how a damaged muscle brought Adrian to the piano and later to software development and IT consulting. He shares with us how jazz thinking can influence innovation and help embrace the unknown so that exciting things can happen.

We discuss the essence of how people work meaningful together, how people deal with adversity in teams and what this means for team development.

And we talk about his new endeavour, syncspace, and why audiences on this platform tip four to six times more than they already have paid.

Today we are in Finland, my guest is  Ilkka Mäkitalo – musician, teacher, CEO, Co-Founder of Howspace and Conductor of Jyvaskyla Big Band

We chat about instruments,  jazz and how to inspire young talents to compose for a big band. And we talk about organisational memory, organisational learning, organisational dynamics and how to change the world with a digital platform for facilitating dialogue in different contexts, supported by AI. 

And we are talking about different meanings for AI when engaging people like artificial intelligence, applied improvisation and appreciative inquiry.

Ilkka shares his vision on leadership in a digital and remote world and how to grow an organisation above 17 people and raise venture capital of about 12 Mio with strong cultural guiding principles.
