Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation - Avoiding a lost generation June 2013 - EY - Global

Young entrepreneurs pinpoint five imperatives to help spur jobs and avoid an entire lost generation.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Entrepreneurship & Innovation- "3. Create a culture of risk-taking

Treps are crucial job creators, and their governments need to promote this. In fact, 50% of young treps think this action would have a high impact on supporting entrepreneurship in the G20. Society, too, needs to be more tolerant of failure and recognize treps as providers of innovative products.

As youth unemployment reaches crisis levels, schools and universities can help. "The key is to start earlier and to really engage students in unlocking their entrepreneurial mindset, whether or not they are going into large employment opportunities or starting their own businesses," says Amy Rosen, Chief Executive of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)."

Pursue Innovation, Reject Novelty

Pursue Innovation, Reject Novelty | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Companies need some structure for developing innovative supply chain ideas, not just implementing them.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

curated to GIBS Bog Blog, July -


"PwC suggests that companies follow some of these steps as a way to draw a line in the sand and separate out innovation from novelty. Though not supply chain-specific, they certainly apply and are probably already implemented to some degree among thought leaders.

 

  • Become systematic about innovation. Companies considered to be the most effective innovators have developed structures that allow employees to think like entrepreneurs, empowering them to think about problem-solutions scenarios that address their everyday concerns. Also, they have strong leadership that provides centralized support.
  • Think about the long haul. To vet out innovative ideas from novel ones, and to have a continuous stream of innovative ideas to pull from, innovative companies establish a pipeline where both incremental ideas and long-term big bets are frequently percolating.
  • Embrace digital. PwC notes the many forms of innovation have resulted from the digitalization of operational models. The firm suggests companies define what more complete digitalization could mean for the business and examine whether the company is taking full advantage of existing digital tools."
