Overview: What new methods for improving existing processes are you considering? Where are you open to generating smaller results sooner and building results incrementally? Where are you open to innovating and implementing - simultaneously?
I'm looking forward to learning from each of you during our "Incremental Improvement" secession next week.
Just thought it would be nice to kick thigs off for the weekend with a question that's been on my mind.
I would like each of your thoughts around the following question:
How would you distinguish incremental improvements from continuous improvements?
How would you prove that one is better than the other?
Please share your thoughts and insight!

What other adjectives would you use to motivate yourself to create value via improvement of outcomes for others?
I am looking forward to the session today.
From my perspective, incremental improvements are small changes that yield small gains. For example, lessons learned and retrospectives following the completion of a project.
Continuous improvements relate to bigger process changes. Changing a development process to shorten the delivery timeline.
The combination of both incremental and continuous drives smart business.
See you later today.
Thanks for moderating this panel discussion. I have a slightly different take on your great question: what is continuous incremental improvement? Is this even possible? What would it be like to continuously add value to an organization by sustaining disruptive innovation? I think the answer lies in Systemic Meta-Learning.
I am a learning scientist, and so this fits squarely in my wheelhouse. I've uncovered a sequence of learning strategies that have been shown to quadrupling learning productivity through a processionals I call Collective Learning Theory. I'm keen to share this today and gain feedback from our dialogue!

The issues that concern me are:
1]when to change a core product moderately or decide when a well known and successful product must be extensively re-done;. 2] in the case of a major product change how do you keep the DNA of the experience adapted yet still intact, familiar and faithful to core elements which have made it successful. Issue 2 is, from experience in my own enterprise, extremely challenging.
