Using Twitter as a data source: An overview of current social media research tools

Using Twitter as a data source: An overview of current social media research tools | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

The popularity of social media sites and the ease at which its data is available means these platforms are increasingly becoming primary sources for social research. Wasim Ahmedpresents a quick look at some of the tools available to social scientists for analysing social media data and also reflects on the limitations of the platforms and the methods used for this type of research.

I have a social media research blog where I find and write about tools that can be used to capture and analyse data from social media platforms. My PhD looks at Twitter data for health, such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. I am increasingly asked why I am looking at Twitter, and what tools and methods there are of capturing and analysing data from other platforms such as Facebook, or even less traditional platforms such as Amazon book reviews.

Why Europe should invest in imitation, not innovation

Why Europe should invest in imitation, not innovation | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it
In economic debates, it is about as close to a mantra as you can get: Innovation is good, and faster innovation is even better. You can never have too much of it. The World Bank, in a recent report, bemoaned what it called Europe’s “innovation deficit” and questioned whether Europe had “fundamental flaws in its economic environment”...

How to Get Great Ideas from Your Team

How to Get Great Ideas from Your Team | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

The thing about brainstorming, idea management and other business tools for collecting ideas is that they are artificial processes that attempt to induce creativity on groups and, as such, acknowledge a simple fact: the office is a terrible place for having and developing ideas!

7 key decisions behind innovation success. A roadmap to master innovation | Innovation Management | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it
As innovation practitioners, few of us would refute that decision-making is one of the biggest progress-halting problems in corporations pursuing innovation as a continuous process. This article introduces a hands-on tool to help innovators, management members and corporate boards to follow a visual, utterly practical method to “consider” (as opposed to evaluate) new projects and their possible implications in their companies’ future. The tool in turn, fosters lean communication and inclusive understanding among diverse participants, claiming that, by following its structure, innovation is not only possible, but repeatable.

The Secret Weapon of Intrapreneurial Innovators

The Secret Weapon of Intrapreneurial Innovators | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it
Last summer, Jennifer Sigler, the Chief Operating Officer at Global Giving, shared with me that her entire staff was reading the Lean Startup by Eric Ries. The idea that a senior manager of a non-profit would have all of her employees read a book about start-up strategy sounded unconventional and [...]
Rowan Norrie's insight:

This is a great article, which looks at good habits of successful entrepreneurs. Learning from failure, staying lean and developing  a Minimal Viable product that you can quickly take to market to get feedback and start revenue have all been mentioned before.

 

But it never occurred to be that having the group all speak a common language is a key factor. There are different ways this can be achieved - 1) lay out the ground rules and include a glossary of terms and what they mean 2) attend an innovation training event and agree what terminology you are going to use or 3) be part of an entrepreneurial movement like Entrepreneurial Spark to be imbued with innovation speak.

Innovation is the Future of Marketing and Customer Experience

Innovation is the Future of Marketing and Customer Experience | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

If you take a step back and look at the topline trends, the main focus of these innovation centers is also examining the deeper understanding of customer needs [35%]. That’s wonderful as people should always come first. It also seems to me that these innovation centers have things backwards. It should never be technology first. Without knowing the expectations, behaviors and values of digital customers, innovative technology is left without purpose. And, without purpose, technology is merely a means without an end. I learned this time and time again in my work in studying digital transformation. .
