Matthew Ellison and Ted Esler chat with Gideon and Sarah, African American missionaries to North Africa, about how many missions fields in Africa are becoming missions forces.
This is a simple strategy for creating innovation in an organization. The strategy is to focus on extending your current business model (Box 1), creating something entirely new (Box 3), and stopping activity no longer fruitful (Box 2). Each one has a significant impact on innovation.
We talk with President of Frontiers USA, Bob Blincoe. Bob will shed light on whether or not churches should still be sending missionaries to unreached.
We talk with missions innovator Andrew Scott, of Scatter Global, who sounds a call for a new era of missions.
This book is an analysis of business innovations. It is arranged into ten distinct types of innovations, with examples for all of them. Included is a listing of 100 different tactics used to implement the innovation. It explains which different types of innovation might be combined to create change in an industry segment. The final section of the book gives “games” or scenarios for leaders to engage in, imagining and analyzing potential targets for innovation.
This book helps leaders understand how disruptive change occurs and does so in the context of mobility. It makes the claim that the next big social and business revolution will be in moving people from one place to another.
Uber, iPhones, Airbnb, Netflix, and Amazon. The list goes on. Disruptive innovations are taking over traditional North American industries. The missions realm also needs consistent creative effective new ways for how we activate, recruit, and onboard new workers. The environment is ripe for unprecedented breakthroughs in mobilization collaborations in the North American missions’ enterprise.
Tune in as Ted interviews Life Church on leading innovation and using technology to engage globally and reach the world for Christ.
