Bypass the Naysayers

Destination Innovation

If the main route to market for your great innovation is blocked by naysayers committed to current products and methods, you should ask – who benefits most from this?

Technology Created

How relevant is a world where technology was so weak, so non-integrated? What about a student of technology? Why would it be important to dig into events such as the introduction of the Model A by Henry Ford in 1927 or the failure of IBM to react to Microsoft’s entry into the PC market in the early 1980’s? Why would they simply not be able to more effectively and easily move to a new market and opportunity as they occur? Newsweek (March 20, 2011), [link]. [2]

Adam Hartung

In a market of 95million barrels per day production, electric cars made a difference of 25,000 to 70,000 barrels of lost consumption; ~.05%.

Innovation Lessons from the Master, Steve Jobs

Destination Innovation

The marriage of aesthetics and technology became his life-long obsession. At the age of 21 Jobs founded Apple with Steve Wozniak in order to market the Apple I personal computer.

How the current patent system actually hurts innovation (and how patent trolls are being fought)

Idea to Value

Originally, patents had a simple purpose: By filing a patent, an inventor or company showed how their new technology worked, in exchange for legal protection for the duration of the patent.

Sometimes much larger changes, or new products which define a market.

Oversimplifying, R&D can be viewed as the process of converting financial resources into ideas and technologies, while innovation is the process of converting ideas and technologies back into money through business modelling and experimentation. The new technologies available in this day and age have a two-fold impact on the pharma industry.

Our inabilities to adapt needs changing.

Paul Hobcraft

According to a survey by McKinsey in 2011, 72% of our transformation programs fail to deliver on their original targets.
