The Roots of Progress

Event: Jerry Neumann on managing innovation

The Torch of Progress, Episode 11

On Wednesday I interview Jerry Neumann, angel investor and professor at Columbia University, for “The Torch of Progress”, the speaker series of Progress Studies For Young Scholars. We’ll be talking about organization & management of research, linear and non-linear models of innovation, and uncertainty vs. risk in progress.

If you’re not familiar with Jerry’s work, check out a recent essay of his, “One Process”, on the question: are incremental improvements different in kind from revolutionary breakthroughs? Or do they exist on a spectrum?

Jerry’s blog is very insightful, and he lives at the intersection of theory and practice. Looking forward to this!
