Building Innovative Organizations

Building Innovative Organizations | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

The ultimate goal of innovation leadership is not to create followers waiting for instructions, but to awaken self-leadership in people and allow them freedom to work on their ideas, share their thoughts and take initiative to meet their targets.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 28, 2013 5:53 PM

Organizations led by courageous people, filled with courageous leaders and followers will be innovative. We need to move away from holding onto the past and pretending deck chairs rearranged on a sinking ship is sufficient.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, April 15, 2013 9:17 AM

Great article by Dutch innovation professor Jeff Gaspersz on the role of leadership in fostering innovation. In short: While organizations "underutilize the creativity of their employees", stimulating creativity should be a "core task in leadership" and "will become a strategic priority."

 

According to Gaspersz, innovative leaders...

 

"...will challenge our old ideas and stimulate our curiosity in discovering new and unconventional viewpoints"

"...encourage their employees to be courageous and give them the space to act and even break out of the formation"

"...are (those) who stimulates me to think along new paths, question my own familiar practices and challenge my existing assumptions"

I am familiar with some of the writing and thinking of one of the founding editors, Brent Davis. He remains on the advisory board. It is peer reviewed and, in today's educational environment, complexity theory needs to be fully considered.

Bait car: how Hollywood has found a new way to make money

Bait car: how Hollywood has found a new way to make money | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Copyright trolling is a sneak attack on folks who may or may not be doing anything wrong. While certainly a film like The Divide is a piece of intellectual property that deserves protection, things break down when it is used as bait to gather lucrative lawsuits.


Via Luca Baptista
luiy's insight:

So what now?
“Don’t be fooled — these trolls can be fought using the same arguments as any of the others. An IP address still does not conclusively link to the subscriber as the downloader,” said Cashman.

“Each of these cases suffered from the same issues which would prevent them from going to trial — lack of personal jurisdiction, improper joinder of accused defendants, and that there were clear patterns in the rulings of the judges across the U.S. where they were clearly misunderstanding what was the real intention of these copyright trolls, and they were denying motions to quash and attempts of the internet users to prevent the copyright trolls from obtaining their contact information,” he said.

Jeffrey Antonelli, an anti-troll lawyer, told us that before those attacked do anything they should confirm that their computers are compromised or that a relative hasn’t been visiting The Pirate Bay without their knowledge.

Then you have to gamble. Do you hire a lawyer and forge ahead or ignore the notice?

 

“I have represented a number of people who were sued because they ignored the letters. It’s about trying to determine that chance, it’s difficult, and it would be helpful to have legal advice. You can be well-informed by reading the relevant sources. Copyright Trolls and Die, Troll, Die are both good sources and both are being sued by some copyright trolls,” he said.

Again, is this Dinerstein’s fault? No, said Antonelli. “Starting from the presumption that copyright owners – bona fide business owners that are providing content. With those assumptions, I don’t think it’s necessarily bad. I do have issues with the manner in which those people are doing their investigations/litigation and with the selection of people they actually decide to sue.”

 

Antonelli said Paul is looking at a claim of about $500-$750.

“Other law firms charge more, my firm is able to charge less. Litigation is quite a bit more expensive. Litigation can easily be up to $5,000-$6,000 and can quickly escalate to $50,000 if you’re the main defendant. It’s very burdensome. There should be strict rules on the ability to enforce copyrights through ISP subpoenas.”

 

In the end, copyright trolling is a sneak attack on folks who may or may not be doing anything wrong. While certainly The Divide is a piece of intellectual property that deserves protection, things break down when it is used as bait to gather lucrative lawsuits. Entire film studios produce second-rate movies to, presumably, show on Netflix and other services and, sadly, use to power these lawsuits. While perhaps the The Divide isn’t such a movie, the chances look good.

It appears to me as if these movie studios have been making second-rate movies for some time, more as a hobby as far as I’m concerned. Setting up a holding company and transferring the copyright to the holding company so that they could sue for copyright infringement appears to be a ‘business model’ of what is known as ‘IP monetization’ that lawyers are so excited about.

“In other words, they say: ‘It’s a bad economy, so let’s threaten to, but not sue the pants off of anyone who downloads our content,’” he said.

Sadly, for folks like Paul, sometimes that strategy works.

Directional sound is awesome. Long a feature of cinema and state-of-the-art home entertainment systems, directional sound uses several focused speakers to create sound that hits one ear differently than the other, allowing the brain to figure out which direction the sound is coming from. This has even been heralded as providing the competitive edge to gamers. Now, Raytheon wants to transfer that same edge from gamers to actual warfighters, by making them all a little more like Daredevil.

The technology goes by the flashy name of "3-D audio," and it's being aimed specifically at pilots. Rather than making pilots read visual displays about missiles and enemy fire, Raytheon wants to provide audio warnings that vary in strength and direction based on the attack. This is the Daredevil part: like Marvel's superhero with incredible hearing, Raytheon hopes pilots using 3-D audio will be able to hear and respond to threats instantly.

#Call: #Occupy Movement - Tell us your personal occupy story

#Call: #Occupy Movement - Tell us your personal occupy story | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

We are looking for personal stories on why you are protesting, why you support the movement and experiences that you may have had. This is your story, so feel free to tell it  the way you like, pictures are also welcome. Your voice in this movement is important and as valuable as the richest person in the world. Let us know what you are feeling inside, how you came to support the movement (does not matter if you are a protester or not), your vision for the future, the problems you see, the thing you fear the most and whatever else you would like to share. Remember this is your personal story, so tell it in anyway you want.

 

These stories will be published in papers, book form, on the web and broadcast throughout the world. The stories are intended as a future and current historical perspective of the occupy movement. The project is also intended to put a human face (not just sound bites) on the movement and to reach those who only get their news from the main stream media. This is another way of expressing what is going on while changing the world for all, for the better.

 

Please e-mail your story with your name (can use a fake name), city, the story and your e-mail to OccupyStory@gmail.com. We will do our best to let you know when and where you are published. It would be very helpful if you could spell check and edit, we intend on publishing exactly as received.

 

As interest in this project grows, we will create a site dedicated to the stories of the occupy movement with a link from this page to the new site. Thank you and look forward to what you have to say,

Lisa and Paul

The most comprehensive geo-political news service available on the Internet, covering over 263 countries and regions, all U.S. States and Industries.

luiy's insight:
Embracing Openness Online

Chinese consumers across all segments are becoming increasingly connected. In May 2012, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that the number of mobile phone users in China exceeded 1 billion. Additionally, the number of Internet users in the country recently reached 538 million, with mobile Internet users now up to 388 million. As more users access the Internet, many are also accessing social media services and applications. McKinsey found that 95 percent of Chinese living in Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities are registered on a social media site, and that Chinese consumers spend 46 minutes a day visiting social media sites, compared with only seven minutes in Japan and 37 minutes in the United States.

 

While the social landscape in China remains crowded with many different players, these rich communication channels are allowing Chinese consumers to connect in multiple ways. While censorship does kick in, if one tool suddenly becomes unavailable, it has been shown that the Chinese will simply find another means to interact with one another. As more and more Chinese go online, digital connectivity — which started off in the ’90s as an inevitable consequence and supporting tool for the “socialist market economy” — is now being shaped by a wide variety of consumers. As they find new ways to exchange dialogue, their voices will only become louder and clearer.

Four types of data analytics that providers are using to improve population health

Four types of data analytics that providers are using to improve population health | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
An interview with Explorys CMIO on four types of data accountable care organizations are using to improve population health such as predictive analytics and comparative analytics.
luiy's insight:

Descriptive Analytics 

 

This accounts for the biggest chunk of big data across industries and it tends to focus on what went wrong or assessing why outcomes are more or less than what was expected. “Most people are pretty well covered when you think of descriptive analytics,” says Jain. One example of descriptive analytics is giving hospitals a better understanding of current assessments, like how many of its patients should have received a pneumococcal vaccine or how many diabetes patients in an endocrinology department have their blood sugar under control?

 

 

Predictive Analytics 

 

Big data is chiefly being used to identify patterns, predict how to predict future outcomes, and avoid preventable events as a way to reduce healthcare costs. Jain says the most frequently asked question, particularly from accountable care organizations is, “‘What percent of our patients will be re-admitted?’ They are also looking at how many patients will use the emergency room.” Explorys’ big data platform includes a tool that can score patients based on their risk profile, such as whether they have chronic conditions, so providers can develop more effective approaches to care.

 

 

Prescriptive Analytics 


One of the most noticeable trends at HIMSS this year was the increasing interest in prescriptive analytics. A recent report from Gartner looking across business intelligence said that only 13 percent of organizations are using predictive analytic but even fewer — 3 percent — are using prescriptive analytics, so there is plenty of opportunity for growth and the demand is increasing. Prescriptive analytics involves helping a provider measure and manage a patient population. For example, one tool from Explorys’ big data platform allows users to focus on patients with obesity, add a morbidty like diabetes and assess their LDL levels or other measurement to determine where they need to focus attention.



Comparative Analytics 


One of the most interesting ways providers can use big data is to compare their performance to other healthcare facilities. Explorys expanded into the comparative analytics market this year with its National Benchmarks platform. The platform uses comparative metrics throughout more than 92 billion clinical, financial, and operational data sets across a continuum of care. By combining clinical data with claims and administrative data, it gives insights into patterns and trends. Providers can compare their performance with a particular patient population compared with the aggregate network, made up of providers such as the Cleveland Clinic, St Joseph Health System and Legacy Health. Patient information is de-identified and made HIPAA compliant while keeping participating providers private. For example, providers can see how the LDL levels of their patients compares with that of the network and can use different sets of criteria across age, race, geography and gender. Providers can use the information to develop insights to improve performance.

As Congress inches toward major immigration legislation, a new Sunlight Foundation analysis (based on almost 8,000 lobbying reports) offers a comprehensive and interactive guide to the web of interests with something at stake.

 

As legislation continues to take shape, a wide range of sectors will continue flooding Congress with their lobbyists, trying to make sure that their particular concerns are fully addressed. These visualizations can help to better understand who these interests are, what they care about, and how intensely they are likely to lobby to get what they want.

Working with people in my daily life and condition of vulnerability in central Sao Paulo. Education with digital inclusion has changed lives.

 

Sidnei Campos Pinto's comment, May 3, 2013 11:08 AM
The work of teaching and learning in young and adult literacy, digital inclusion, education for the media, has the role of providing people in vulnerable conditions in the central region of São Paulo, in Brazil, the recovery of full citizenship and the practice of justice social.
Sidnei Campos Pinto's comment, May 3, 2013 12:25 PM
The dynamics of the course has an entrepreneurial approach. There is a very natural and intuitive way to stimulate the ability of each student. The role of the teacher is no longer teaching but a mediator. Encouraging and show that the student is capable. It is not an easy task. You know how to use the power of collective intelligence (Levy, Pierre Pierre Levy) to achieve goals. Organization and replacement are sought within almost endless battles within each personal reality. There is a system of effective collaboration that does not allow this process to be interrupted.
