What Can A Shopping Cart Tell Us About Innovation?

People’s perception of innovation often comes from the results of innovation, but they know little about the process of innovation. In July 1999, ABC’s famous evening show Nightline decided to produce a special program so that viewers could get a glimpse of how innovation took place. They contacted IDEO, one of the world’s best design companies in Silicon Valley, and presented them with a challenge: to redesign shopping carts that people use every day in five days. IDEO was unequivocal when he received the challenge. It immediately formed a design team made up of cross-disciplinary people. Early Friday morning, in front of the camera, the design team uncovered the cloth on the shopping cart, and a newly designed shopping cart appeared in front of a national audience. The traditional image of the shopping cart has been subverted. It no longer looks like a big shopping basket on four wheels. The new shopping cart has a futuristic metal body with five small standard shopping baskets on it. They are like storage boxes one by one, making it easy for shoppers to store different items in different categories, and also allows shoppers to park their shopping carts and go shopping with one of the small baskets in hand. When checking out, the clerk takes out the items in the small baskets and puts them into shopping bags, and then piles them together for recycling. This will cause a problem, and shoppers will have to leave with a lot of trouble carrying a
