What 2019 holds for innovation

RTI Innovation Advisors

I wrote my obligatory look back at 2018 article on innovation recently, so it is natural that we should turn our attention to where innovation will take us in 2019. In the 2018 review I made some disparaging remarks about Apple, which may or may not have caused it to lose a tremendous amount of market capitalization. Or perhaps the stock was overvalued and Apple has become more interested in margin than in innovation. I'll let you, gentle reader, be the judge.

Living With Technical Debt: Balancing Quality and Perfection
