Does anyone know anything about Homologation?
Dictionaries say it’s basically a way of setting standards or approving something.
I’m interested in how it might stimulate innovation.
Regulators ‘driving innovation’ @tobyjlowe
Something motor racing does.
Thread ⬇️ Image
Some F1 Engineers I met told me that Homologation
Specifically the Regulators cunningly ‘changing the rules’
Forced them the develop new solutions (innovation, tralllahhh)
Details here⬇️

Homologation, Rule Changes and Forcing Innovation
Apparently it’s all part of a system where these innovations find their way into the mainstream.
The F1 Engineers said that domestic electric car tech started in F1, and
Here’s an unexpected application on supermarket fridge cooling…

My question.
If Homologation and changing the rules to force innovation is a thing,
How could this work in areas like: social care, housing, health care, financial managing or anything?

Here’s a Thread containing
👉Deviant Librarians
👉Disconnected Jerks
👉Silver Bullets, and
👉London Taxi Cab Drivers
Starts with,
Knowledge Management Boomerangs that keep coming back around and @snowded ‘s 7 Principles of KM antidote.
Principle 1. Knowledge can only be volunteered.
This post about the Disconnected Jerk illustrates.
Research from Germany where workers avoid ‘The Disconnected Jerk’ - even though they should share knowledge with them.
Deviant Librarians
A lovely example of how deep knowledge held by Librarians put them into conflict with a Perfect System.
Soulless Algorithms that wanted to ‘delete’ valuable books...
Librarians creating false IDs to protect the books...

The average duration of an Empire is 250 years.
It’s been like that for 3000 years.

10 generations seems to be the influencing factor.
The way humans behave as they progress from:
Conquering ‘Barbarians’ to Decadent Luxury.
A love of money and selfishness are key markers, amongst some others you might recognise. ImageImage

The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.
By my calculations that makes the USA 254 years old.
Glubb wrote this paper in the 1970s, 50 years ago.
Just saying...

Decoy Effect.
Offering choices in a way that nudges us to pick one we might not have.
Usually the more expensive/bigger
Brilliantly explained with Dogs via @advncdhindsight
Retail use this massively.
Think: Tall, Grande, Venti coffee sizes
Found this via current fascination with Nudge in retail.
And writing this

Why isn’t the Retail Sector doing more ‘Nudging’ of Hand Sanitisation? –
But it has got me wondering.
Is this used when people put options forward for approval in a Business Case?
-Option 1. Do nothing
-Option 2. What I want
-Option 3. Complete Lunacy. 3 times the cost with huge riskes.
Of course the Committee will choose Option 2...
