exploiting chaosFor this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing podcast I talked about Exploiting Chaos with TrendHunter founder Jeremy Gutsche. TrendHunter is billed as the world’s largest network for trend spotting and innovation and the site is a terribly entertaining and informative place to spend some time.

Jeremy’s book – Exploiting Chaos – 150 ways to spark innovation during times of change – is a fun and engaging read. The book is filled with bold statements, images and tidbits along with stories that illustrate each point. I found it to be one of the more thoughtful books on the topic of innovation that I’ve read in a long time.

Pick any short chapter and you are certain to be inspired by the creative and sometimes risky thinking.

In our session we talked about:

  • About trend spotting
  • About new book: Exploiting Chaos
  • Expanding on: Exploiting economic recession/turmoil
  • Expanding on: Culture is more important than strategy
  • Expanding on: Failing through innovation
  • Expanding on: Hire freaks
  • Uncovering future trends
  • Future global trends
