FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Why aren't you using Predictive Innovation to make $1 billion products yourself?

I am using Predictive Innovation to make products. I work with several companies and investors to bring really important things to market. Increasingly, many of the most important innovations aren't about money. They are more about ideas at the local level. That is why I want as many people as possible to know and use Predictive Innovation.

Aren't you afraid competition will copy your idea?

If there is enough customers wanting more than one source then I don't see other people providing the product as competition, it is collaboration to satisfy the unmet desire. Also, with Predictive Innovation I can find newer better ideas any time I want.

I learned some of this in other classes.

You probably did. The key word is some. Predictive Innovation is a complete system derived from first principles. It shows you how everything is connected so instead of searching through literally billions of billions of billions of ideas you can pinpoint what you need in less than 12 comparisons.

Why isn't this taught in schools?

Ask your local administrator and lets work on changing that. It has been taught in elite universities such as MIT and UBAYA and parts are taught at Harvard and Oxford. There currently aren't enough people skilled enough to teach it who are willing to give up their lucrative industry careers.

Can children learn Predictive Innovation? What about Home Schooling?

Yes. I've taught children 8 years old and they understood it quicker than most adults. Once again home schooling, or as I prefer self education, excels. It seems that after children are exposed to school they start to struggle with there being dozens of answers and questioning assumptions. Self educated children do not have that problem. If your child is struggling I've seen them find relief when shown the underlying system to thinking.

Doesn't structure ruin creativity?

Absolutely not! Most artist's biggest struggle is the blank page. Predictive Innovation helps you draw the edges so you can start filling in the shapes with the vibrant detail. It provides scaffolding so you can achieve the monumental results such as Michelangelo's murals on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or the keys on the piano focused Mozart's talent.

I'm a right brain artistic person, isn't this for engineers & math types?

Artistic big picture associative thinkers are some of the best practitioners of Predictive Innovation.
