11 Staying Current is Easy Rochester Institute of Technology 11 Pressroom Blog KEVIN SURACE If you don t disrupt your own business today, you ll probably be out of business tomorrow. Change Agent Snapshot: Kevin Surace I believe at the heart of our economic future lies creativity and disruptive innovation. So inspiring, encouraging, and rewarding creativity is a huge part of being a change agent in the world today. Career highlights: Surace, who has been awarded 23 U.S. patents, was named Inc. magazine s Entrepreneur of the Year in The following year, CNBC named him one of 15 Leading Innovators for the Next Decade, and the World Economic Forum named him a Tech Pioneer. Current position: CEO of Appvance (www.appvance.com), a provider of web app validation software and services. Appvance s technology drives scalability and performance in business and consumer websites and apps. Career path: Surace served as chairman, CEO and president of Serious Energy (formerly Serious Materials) from 2002 to The company received widespread acclaim for developing innovative, energy-efficient building materials and software and completed some 70,000 projects including the Empire State Building. Before joining Serious Materials, Surace held executive and technical positions with Perfect Commerce, General Magic, Air Communications, National Semiconductor, and Seiko-Epson. RIT Degree: BSET Electrical Engineering Technology (1985) plus a concentration in music. What led you to choose RIT? As a kid, I was really interested in electronics. I started my career in consumer electronics and saw the opportunity in business applications. I wanted a deep understanding about the technology to be effective in marketing and sales roles. What attracted to me to RIT is that the RIT course offered practical, hands-on experience and placed less emphasis on the theoretical aspects of electronics. I was interested in designing things, so this was a perfect fit. Tell us about your experience at RIT It was an incredibly rigorous program I think the attrition rate in my program was 50% because the courses were so demanding. We were all surprised by how hard it was. But I think the way the courses were designed challenged us to think through problems and approach them from different angles a skill I was able to apply later to develop solutions at a broad scale. I was also lucky enough to be able to combine the EET degree with a concentration in music this was a perfect balance for me. In fact, many of the creative thinking skills that I learned with my music professor have continued to be useful in my professional life. Agents of Change Online Info Sessions Hot Courses < > How did RIT prepare you for early changes in you professional career? As a newly minted RIT graduate, I already had five years sales experience in electronics plus co-op at IBM. That, coupled with my technical training at RIT was a great combination in Silicon Valley in the late 80s. It s certainly true that RIT gave me core skills and knowledge that I could instantly apply to solving problems, and I think this skill, above all, has helped me to advance and to be an active and vocal contributor at National Semi, General Magic and Serious Energy. In terms of attributes that helped advance me from sales engineer to CEO, I think the most valuable skills I learned at RIT were team-building and interpersonal skills developed through team study. You often hear that it s important to build teams of independent thinkers and I agree with that. But I think it s equally true that a good leader will help lead team members to great ideas by inspiring confidence and risk-taking. A good team can build on those ideas and solve big problems. I ve seen this over and over again.

I believe that creativity inspiring and encouraging people and teams to be creative and think out of the box is a huge part of being a change agent. But when you think about it, creativity is really about taking risks. In other words, change agents have to be risk-takers. The problem I ve seen in companies that struggle with the creative process is that people are afraid to take risks. For many of us, that s outside our comfort zone and that stagnates innovation. Having the audacity to stand up, say what you think, and suffer the potential shame and ridicule: that s hard. In this age of fast-changing complexity, a great risk-taker is not necessarily braver; he or she is just better informed about the consequences of his or her choices. So what I focus on is making risk a natural part of the corporate culture embracing risk. You can t tell people to take risks, of course. But you can make it okay to pursue an idea and fail. You can make it safe to fail by fostering a corporate culture that embraces risk, and by making it clear that everyone is encouraged to take risks that it s actually expected of them. You also have to make it clear that the organization embraces failure, because from failure comes success. The best thing you can do as a CEO it to tell people that taking smart risks will not only ensure you have a job but will move you up the corporation. Tell us more about creativity. How do you inspire and harness it? RIT encouraged me to be an experiential person and not just a theoretical person, and this has served me well throughout my career. I look for people who are willing to use experiential and theoretical techniques to take smart short cuts. Why? Because acting on a creative hunch that s informed by theory can lead to disruptive innovation. Sometimes it s better to combine a few chemicals in the lab than to spend several days calculating what might happen by using a controlled theoretical simulation. I like to say: try it in the lab and see what happens. As I said a moment ago, you enable creativity by inspiring people to take risks. At its most basic level, this can be as simple as saying What problem are we trying to solve? Let s evaluate as many different ways as possible to solve it. Are there other ways we can solve this pain point? The role of a good leader is to lead your team to asking the right questions and then letting them develop a wide range of answers. Of course, great creativity leads to lots of great ideas. But it s important to remember that a good CEO needs the courage to choose the best course or at least what looks like the best course, given what we know right now. You cannot separate leadership from decision-making the team needs you to make a decision. Execs who cannot make decisions quickly lose their way in this economy faster then they find it. Good leaders know how much risk to take and when. There is no gain without risk. Last question: what have you learned about leadership? Today s leaders especially those in Silicon Valley face a massive challenge every day: disruption. Entire industries are changing more rapidly each year. This means you must continually challenge your team and your business to evolve, because if you don t disrupt your own business today, you ll probably be out of business tomorrow. A successful leader must care about his people and gain their trust to the point that they will follow you to the grave. They have to believe in the team s ability to achieve, even when you set the bar impossibly high. By that same token, a good leader must know when to seek guidance and help from those who have been there before. People who think they know everything and don t need help will never make good leaders. We all need help, everyday, and forever. Learning every single day is a great skill and in the end brings great joy.
