The Human Element

Loran Nordgren

Overview

Groundbreaking ideas with the potential to solve innumerable problems can often go ignored. While sometimes the culprit is bad presentation or marketing, often there is an unseen force at work — friction. Frictions are the little things that get in the way of innovation, the difficulties that make it easier for people not to adopt an idea than to embrace it.

In The Human Element, behavioral scientist and Kellogg School of Management professor Loran Nordgren and his colleague David Schonthal, professor of Strategy, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship, dive into what makes people resistant to innovation.

"Humans are creatures of habit. Although we have the capacity to change, we don't change easily. Proposing new ideas without designing their integration into the world is innovation half-done."
