This one is a conversation about innovation, diversity, and of course, uncertainty. Our guest is Frans Johansson, one of the world’s leading thinkers and practitioners around innovation. Frans’ mission is to prepare individuals and organisations to prepare for the future. Frans is the author of the best-selling book on innovation The Medici Effect, the ideas of which led to Frans founding The Medici Group, a consulting firm that operates where diversity and innovation meet. Frans is also the CEO of the Medici Group.

Frans is all about how diversity drives innovation. This means diversity of culture, of experiences, of opinions, and how to apply these things outside of one’s framework. According to Frans, this is the key to navigating uncertainty and having success. Frans’ own background reflects this. He's the son of a Swedish father and African-American mother. He grew up in Sweden but went to university in the USA.

This is an awesome conversation that covers:

  • Innovation, with, among other things, reference to:
    • Picasso
    • Angry Birds
    • Formula 1
  • How to innovate and test ideas
  • Failure and risk
  • Gut instinct versus rationality
  • Contrarian views
  • Frans’ own approach to decision-making under uncertainty
  • Lots more!

We welcome Daniel Wagner back to the show, this time to discuss his latest and insightful book The America-China Divide: The Race to Control the WorldThe book is an important follow-on to China Vision, which was published last year and on which he joined the podcast. The America-China Divide describes how China has benefited from the US-led international system, the complexity of the US-China relationship and where this is all going.

Daniel describes a vision for the future that we all need to understand, discuss and shape. This is China's Century. But what do we do about that? As Daniel puts it, we need to "wake up" and craft our own vision for co-existence with that reality.

The book has received a number of very positive reviews from renowned China scholars and policy-makers. And if you are a listener of All Things Risk, you will know that Daniel has a wonderful knack for explaining complex geopolitical phenomena in a way that is clear and understandable.
