Blog review 2022

Another year, another review! Over the last twelve months I've written 169 blog posts. And that's without including guest pieces, interviews, and appearances (available here).

Strategy, innovation and leadership remain my top topics, which is expected given my focus. In addition to blogging, this year I've published new resources for corporate innovators:

Below are top five posts based on number of page views, followed by five personal favourites from this year. And just like last year, they are nothing alike.

Top 5 posts in 2022—based on number of views

The same posts as last year, although 3 through 5 have changed the order...

#1 24 most common logical fallacies

24 most common logical fallacies
School of Thought did an amazing job describing some of the most common logical fallacies in plain English. Study them and improve your thinking.

Still by far the most popular post on the blog. I hope that people use it to reflect on and improve their decision making processes, and not to "just" to point others how wrong they are.

#2 Step-by-step guide for designing Lean Experiments

Step-by-step guide for designing Lean Experiments
Designing sound experiments is critical to creating valid and reusable knowledge. This guide will help you achieve that.

Business experimentation is a great way to reduce uncertainty and improve odds of success for any product, service, or business. I'm delighted to hear from business and universities who have adopted the guide with great success.

P.S. The guide is now available in French as well. Just reach out if you're interested in translating it to your language.

#3 Eight Principles of SMED

Eight Principles of SMED
Mr. Rogers explains six basic steps of Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) basics and its eight principles.

I'm honestly surprised at how many people are coming to this, rather old, post! It climbed from #5 last year—is no one else writing about SMED?

#4 24 most common cognitive biases

24 most common cognitive biases
School of Thought did an amazing job describing some of the most common cognitive biases in plain English. Study them and improve your decisions.

As with fallacies, I hope the readers are leveraging this post to avoid poor decisions as much as possible.

#5 Quality Philosophers

Quality Philosophers
Deming, Juran, Ishikawa, and Crosby changed the world of quality management forever. These are their most significant contributions.

Based on increased mentions and references in theses, I'm quite confident that the majority of traffic is driven by students.

Top 5 posts in 2022—my personal favourites

I've written many posts I was proud of, so it was quite difficult to pick only five!

#1 How to select the right innovation framework for you?

How to select the right innovation framework for you?
A deep answer to a seemingly simple question.

The right combination of lightweight governance, tight portfolio management, and leaky innovation funnel can do wonders.

#2 Getting started with an Innovation Board

Getting started with an Innovation Board
Venture Board; Growth Board; Innovation Board—oh my!

All you need to set up your very own innovation board, a special-purpose governing body with mandate to invest into innovative projects and ventures that are expected to contribute to the organisation’s revenue and margin growth.

#3 Create your own innovation portfolio in three simple steps

Create your own innovation portfolio in three simple steps
Disciplined innovation management at scale.

Demystifying complex ideas is one of my hobbies. In this post I break down portfolio design step-by-step, including illustrations. It's funny how one of the consultancies promptly copied it with minor modifications (they flipped the portfolio upside down and reordered & re-titled axes).

#4 The Four Growth Arenas

The Four Growth Arenas
On how to grow fearlessly.

Branding and innovation are two best levers for organic growth. Leaders use The Four Growth Arenas model to quickly analyse their growth possibilities.

#5 Five steps to augmented strategy

Five steps to augmented strategy
Small steps, great results.

Another step-by-step guide, this time about how to use data to make the best possible strategic decision.

What will I write about in 2023?

In addition to continuing with regular blogging, Bruno Unfiltered™ and The Innovator's Attitude™ newsletters, daily commentary on LinkedIn, I have also planned two new ebooks.

One will be about busting common innovation myths while the other will address three strategy gaps. Besides that, I will write a book on profitable corporate innovation—unlike any other.

Subscribe to be informed when they become available.
