To be able to develop a real Disruptive innovation there is need for an Ecosystem that favors this form of innovation.
In fact, disruptive innovation requires disruptive instruments at two levels (ie two different types of Ecosystem):
● for production: without synergies between disruptive operators it is very difficult to create truly disruptive products (this is however possible, as the really disruptive StartUps are demonstrating).
See new production methods Smart Fabrication as rental or sharing of production tools <Industry 4.0: the Smart manufacturing (& SmartFAB) and Towards a radically new model of Industry 4.0: introduction to a Smart Fabrication plan>
● for the development of a truly disruptive value in the product: the real disruptivity of a product derives from its interaction with functionality offered by other products and services.
That is, since the disruptivity of the new generation of products is in being not a Product but a Solution, its value derives from the ability to interact with the products, services and resources in which it is inserted.
the problem is that
THE DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION
IS NOT A IMPROVEMENT OF WHAT EXISTS ALREADY,
BUT THE “INVENTION
– FROM SCRATCH –
OF SOMETHING IS RADICALLY NEW
with respect to the existing.
That is, disruptive innovation can only take place bottom-up, with the development of ecosystem elements (for production, and for the product) by truly disruptive innovators <see Innovation is intrinsically (historically) bottom-up >
While the big companies are not able to conceive a real disruptive innovation due to problems inherent to them <see The great Firms are not able to develop disruptive innovation within them >
This Ecosystem for production tools must therefore be redefined from scratch with:
● new rules – the National and International Laws must be reviewed in order to favor (at least not to advantage) truly innovative solutions.
● open standards – the real innovation (disruptive) flourishes where there are more contributions to realize the finished product (also by very small Sart Up).
● Open Public Administration – the new disruptive innovation products are largely solutions that overlap with the Public Services sector. These products must be integrated with the Public Administration Services system.
