Announcing the 2015 Global Innovation Survey

Imaginatik

To help innovation leaders and forward-thinking companies do better, Imaginatik has launched the 2015 Global Innovation Survey. This research initiative, a follow-up from a similar study in 2013, is aimed at defining the state of innovation in the enterprise in 2015. There are 5 sections in the 2015 State of Innovation survey, probing issues such as: How today's companies have structured innovation governance, and how they think about resource allocation for innovation?

Nomination Wanted: 2015 Thinkers50

Matthew May

NOMINATIONS CLOSE JULY 31, 2015. Not until this year’s Thinkers50 nominations would I have ever given the possibility of being nominated a glancing thought. I consider myself to be more of a solid practitioner of others’ ideas than a high-concept thinker.

Thanks to the Internet and global distribution, consumers have access to lots of choices. That’s good for them but not so good for the folks selling those goods.

How 2015 Changed Corporate Innovation: An Overview

Innovation Excellence

There were several key (and generally welcome) themes that emerged throughout 2015 within corporate innovation. These are, in part, driven by the increasing value that corporate and business leadership place on this (still relatively) new competency, the sophistication of practitioners in the field, and the results of seeing what works or fails. It is truly an exciting time to be in this field and to see these changes form across the industry.

Leading a Community of Innovation: Long Term Emergence vs High Value and Rapid Success

Imaginatik

Yes, even before the Internet and social media became essential tools in aiding collaboration. For all these years, we have successfully helped many companies benefit from collective intelligence, keeping participants engaged, creating specific tools for managing their communities, and systems of analysis.

Idea challenges: Giving a Voice to New Business Opportunities

Imaginatik

How many ideas fluctuate within your organization without enriching your portfolio or becoming business projects? The vast majority of them are never even voiced, why bother when nothing happens right? Engagement programs are a valuable path to change that dynamic. At Imaginatik, we have developed eight sustainable strategic processes to achieve engaging in ideas and taking them beyond idea to action.

The Innovation 'Function'

Imaginatik

“Innovation” is often discussed in terms of the “idea” as the product and the formation of that idea as somehow unique and ineffable …. Light bulb / Eureka! / “I was in the shower when…”.
