A vital prerequisite for innovation is discovery - making things known or visible.
Discovering profitable and scalable ideas is the goal of the Discovery Cycle.
ORCA summarizes the four stages of the Discovery Cycle:
Investigate anomalies, paradoxes, peripheral developments, and direct experiences to determine how the world is changing.
This stage is best approached by zooming in and out, using a muse, suspending judgment, slowing down, identifying what's missing, and restructuring data to simplify patterns.
Innovation is driven by people, so it is best to use contrasting views, set an agenda, frame the issues, and generate hypotheses at this stage.
During the final stage of the Discovery Cycle, systematic evidence is gathered, data are categorized, naming is assigned, data analysis is completed, and hypotheses are proposed.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
