With New Chief, Microsoft’s New Mantra Is ‘Innovation,’ Over and Over - NYTimes.com | Innovation Articles fresh, inspiring and rehashed | Scoop.it
It looks as if the new Microsoft, which is now being run by Satya Nadella, the chief executive who is taking Mr. Ballmer’s place, has an updated mantra: “Innovation. Innovation. Innovation. Innovation. Innovation.” In a flurry of media that began flowing out of Microsoft on Tuesday announcing the new C.E.O.’s role, the word “innovation” peppered news releases, videos and internal emails.

Are you solving your most profitable opportunity?

 

The formula is based on identifying things that customers need, how adequate the current solution is, how often the customer has this need, and how important this need is. To quantify your opportunity, ask yourself the below three questions:

1. (Importance) On a scale of 1-5, where 5 is very important and 1 is not at all important, how important is it to the customer that this need gets met?

2. (Frequency) On a scale of 1-5, where 5 is frequently and 1 is infrequently, how often does the customer have this need?

3. (Frustration) On a scale of 1-5, where 5 is very frustrated and 1 is not at all frustrated, how frustrated is the customer with the current solutions that are available to address this need?

 

Now that you have these three scores, plug them into the below formula:

(importance + frequency) x frustration = size of opportunity

You can either plug in the numbers based on your gut feel or you can be a bit more scientific about it and survey a large number of customers asking them the above three questions. After applying this formula to a selection of potential opportunities you could solve, it will become obvious where you should focusing our time.

Professor of Storytelling & Narrativity: Just the Tip of Creativity Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning

Professor of Storytelling & Narrativity: Just the Tip of Creativity Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning | Innovation Articles fresh, inspiring and rehashed | Scoop.it

How do you inspire creativity and innovation in postsecondary education? That’s the challenge that Sheridan College has embraced as a key milestone to becoming Ontario’s first university exclusively dedicated to undergraduate professional education.

 

The immense curiosity generated by Sheridan’s recent job postings for a Professor of Storytelling & Narrativity and a Professor of Creativity & Creative Thinking might provide some indication that Sheridan isn’t alone in recognizing the importance of teaching creativity to future generations.

 

“Creativity is the new currency in the knowledge-based economy,” says Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, Sheridan’s President.  “As Ontario and Canada continue to wrestle with jobs that constantly evolve and emerge, we have an enormous obligation to give our students the hard and soft skills they need - not to participate in the future, but to help inform it.  To do that, we’re building what I like to call The Creative Campus.”

Marci Segal, MS's insight:

Sheridan is also seeking a Professor of Creativity and Creative Thinking, in Canada.  Bold move.  Great to see, glad the door is opening to new disciplines for students and a broadening of talent in faculty ranks.  Kudos
