Innovation Confidence Course

Jeffrey Phillips

The author refers to a lot of factors that stymie innovation, including many of the usual suspects: holding a brainstorm and then doing nothing sustaining a fear of failure thinking innovation is something the technology guys do One of the factors that caught my eye also got me thinking, however. That factor was "create an obstacle course for ideas". What's wrong with an obstacle course? Shouldn't the best ideas be the result of an obstacle course?

Transformation is the Only Way to Really Change the Game

Steve Jobs of Apple once stated, “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” What is interesting is how many individuals hear the call to action about changing the world and confuse it with what it means to transform the world.

Daniel Burrus

As technology continues to impact our lives, workers at every level in today’s ever-changing labor market need to be prepared with skills to adapt and succeed in the workplace. The problem is, we live in an uncertain world, and because of the high levels of uncertainty we all face, people of all ages and careers are finding it difficult to know what new skills to learn, what courses to take, and what degrees to get that will provide them with the most opportunity going forward.

Think Your Company’s Pursuit of Innovation has Run its Course? Think Again…

Qmarkets

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the last 10 years of technological advancements, it’s that humanity’s potential for enhancement, modification, deviation, and then reinvention, is categorically unfathomable. But it’s this mindset which must change in order for companies to maintain a competitive edge and fight disruption. Remarkably, the wheel hasn’t changed much in the time since then.

HR 4.0: how technology is transforming people management

mjvinnovation

Although the world will see even greater changes in the coming years, much of the technology needed is already in place to replace much of the current HR-related activities. The emergence of obligations such as eSocial, for example, has pushed HR departments to push technology into routines that were rarely done with paper documents – remember? With cloud computing democratizing technology, you no longer need to invest a lot of money in IT infrastructure.

How Energy Storage Can Change Everything

Daniel Burrus

Of course, we’ve been an energy-dependent society since the Industrial Revolution — but today, that notion rings truer as our global numbers continue to boom. The new renewable technology we’re counting on to help reduce our global carbon footprint—including all of those solar- and wind-harnessing companies—all depend on the environment itself to generate energy. In fact, the technology is now at our disposal to turn our electric cars into part of our nations’ power grids.

Innovation and the rapidly changing world of photography

Jeffrey Phillips

We've reached a couple of interesting milestones in a very short period of time, and it behooves us to pay attention to the changes in what has been an important industry - photography.

Why you should care about Trend, Technology, and Startup Scouting

ITONICS

We distinguish here between three pillars: technologies, trends, and startups. Even if not all identified trends or technologies are applicable to their current business needs, innovation forerunners should always be on the lookout for the latest developments to proactively address challenges as they arise. Being capable of identifying changes and assessing their relevance for your business, you need a systematic way of conducting a holistic trend management.

Going beyond the 5 bold steps offered to Reimagine the American Innovation Agenda

Paul Hobcraft

I have been reading a report written by Stephen J Ezell of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) along with a guru of innovation, John Kao, of ILSi on their concerns that something is amiss with the U.S. leadership as a birthright, as a matter of course.

The backdrop of digital transformation and its consequences

Paul Hobcraft

Digital transformation is doubly difficult, it forces us to work with mostly emerging, constantly evolving technologies, and then apply these in an integrated way into an existing business. Beyond making a series of incremental improvements to become cloud-ready, we are supposed to reflect social, mobile and digital technologies. Thus it is hard to convince those undecided to support this, whether they are just skeptical or lacking technology adroitness.

Technology is No Longer Something Left To Specialists

Game-Changer

Of course, tradionally lead businesses are not lead by leaders with the above qualities. To transform is to change before you have to; this is the playing to win mentality. They see technologists as cheap freelancers, and see technology as a cost rather than a catalyst for transformation for not just their business but their customers. This has to change not just in Mexico but elsewhere. Leaders must understand technology.

Jumping to a fresh cycle of innovation design

Paul Hobcraft

instead of delivering on discrete elements; this requires managing the whole ecosystem of the innovation design differently through technology where platforms dominate and transformation becomes an ongoing process to evolve the business model, so as to seek out constantly changing market opportunities, in agile, adaptive and fluid ways, for successful innovation outcomes, that meet those real customer needs. The question is can we make such a radical change in our innovation design?

So Where Is Innovation Heading?

Paul Hobcraft

We are in the middle of it, some of you may not have noticed its impact and change but it is significant on the understanding of innovation, in it’s future design. Often this era of change is not as well-recognized or being faced up to, as you would expect. Many companies are still in denial or not wanting to address the significant legacy and change required. It will fundamentally change the type of resources innovation requires.

Managing Energy Transition through Innovation

Innovation System Thinking on a Sunday! What, no roast or glass of wine? Later.

Paul Hobcraft

Of course, this greatly depends on what I am working on, for others and, or for myself. It so often, does not yield the impact we require from innovation; successful outcomes that accelerate growth or make for substantial change. If we can change individual behavior and keep coming back to improving the ‘whole’ design needed for innovation we do get to connecting it all up. We all spend our Sundays in different ways.

Reducing the friction around innovation

Paul Hobcraft

Technological risks to information, from hacking to cybercrime and privacy concerns to identity theft are on the rise. The Innovation Perspective view here is this : Innovation suffers from a lack of automating the innovation process, something I find not just arcane but nonsensical in today’s technologically connected world. With success, organizations calcify; legacy systems and bureaucratic processes slow down their responsiveness and ability to change.
