university is an innovative place?
Some of paul's comment today, made me realised the education spirit of Warwick or UK even European (could be only Anglo Saxon) universities in general is based on continuous improvement. You are not allowed to have an opinion, you are only allowed to give constructive critique, it is only after that you will be given the permission to propose something.
Surely in the span of universe, any change that we have accomplished is only an increment. But I really thought innovation is about making drastic changes and some times is even by not playing the rules. Peter Drucker has defined innovation as creating a new dimension of performance. I guess what my experience so far in Europe, would only mean making an improvements by introducing something new. Not sure if it is a remaining influence of aristocracy in Europe, in contradiction of the new continent countries. Or perhaps that they are just simply trying to ensure that performance would not be a flop.
Still trying to learn the rules, no more of playing square peg in the round hole!
