Jason Fried: Why work doesn't happen at work | Video on TED.com

Jason Fried has a radical theory of working: that the office isn't a good place to do it. In his talk, he lays out the main problems (call them the M&Ms) and offers three suggestions to make work work.
CAlvarezVelden's insight:

"El problema para que el trabajo ocurra en el trabajo son los m&m: managers and meetings. Lo que la gente necesita es no ser interrumpida durante 4 maravillosas horas durante una tarde..."

Innovation Strategy, Execution – and War Games?

I have long been an advocate for companies to develop an innovation strategy that fits well into their overall corporate strategy. I think this is a good way for aligning innovation efforts with corporate direction, but I must admit that I have some difficulties finding good examples of such strategies. The best one I know of is almost 5 years old – the Innovation Intent by Grundfos.

Robert Bradford's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:32 AM

Of course, war games can help you develop your thinking about how to focus limited resources in the face of competition.  What's amazing is that people are just now coming to realize the utility of practicing these thought processes.

Why I Get My Best Ideas in the Shower

Why I Get My Best Ideas in the Shower | i-R&D | Scoop.it

I get a lot of good ideas in the shower, but I never thought too much about why until I read a new book by Ori Brafman and Judah Pollack, The Chaos Imperative: How Chance and Disruption Increase Innovation, Effectiveness, and Success (Crown Business, 2013). It turns out that it’s not the water pelting my noggin or the shampoo that promotes healthy, silky smooth hair triggering my creativity. It’s the default mode network in my brain.

What Google Tells Us About Their Innovation Culture:

"It’s really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favor ability over experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the company, we hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work, Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee to foxtrot.

De cómo se zanjó el litigio sobre Propiedad Intelectual que enfrentaba desde hace 7 años a la farmacéutica transnacional Novartis con la emergente India y segundo país más poblado del mundo (1.200 millones de habitantes). "El lunes 1 de abril del 2013, el Supremo rechazó la petición de patente para el costoso producto contra el cáncer con el nombre de marca Gleeve". Lo anterior, por tratarse de una innovación incremental: mismo principio activo, distinta presentación. No hay novedad, por lo tanto no puede patentarse!
