Strategy for Breakfast? Maybe not…
On this episode, Jonathan Foster and Hanna Sörefelt have a fascinating conversation with innovation professional Johan Fredriksson, who carefully leads us through the six steps needed to build a successful strategy.
We talk about culture and wonder if culture really eats strategy for breakfast? And we hear from a company that has taken Johan’s advice to heart. We meet Cecilia Granath and discover how applying systematic innovation makes a difference at Tyrèns

Or is it a retelling of an old story where the hero is the marketplace and society always plays a supporting role?
On this episode of Demystify Innovation we speak to Daniel Daboczy of Funded by Me - Sweden's first crowdfunding platform - about their journey to utilise the wisdom of the crowd. The question is, how wise is the crowd?
Enlightened Innovation – just let go – Professor Chris Grey
In this episode we have an insightful conversation with Professor Chris Grey, who unpacks fundamental questions about organisations and their innovation.
In our conversation Chris begins with the fundamental paradox between control and autonomy and how that effects innovation.
