Professor Goran Roos - WWO Podcast Episode 53
DARE TO THROW THE DICE
This week the podcast is privileged to welcome Professor Goran Roos. Goran is a Swedish academic with expertise in a range of fields including intellectual capital and innovation management. Professor Roos was appointed Thinker in Residence for the South Australian Government in 2011 and sits on a number of NFP, private and public boards. He is an accomplished author and educator; and has been named in many ‘influential thinker’ lists.
We asked Professor Roos on the show to pry his mind for thoughts regarding early adoption, encouraging entrepreneurship and political regulation.
Professor Roos specific essay question was:
“The stifling of the entrepreneurial spirit is often a frustrating product of governments and global organisations. How do we better implement the practical aspects of innovation and unburden their intellectual capital?”
We spoke on the role of morals & ethics, regulation vs. market forces, economic complexity theory and his views on personal growth.
Engaging, Educated and one of those episodes you could listen to one hundred times and still learn something new.
Enjoy the Show.
