How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget

How to Prioritize Your Innovation Budget | Innovations in the Market | Scoop.it

Here’s the scene: A problem has come up with one of your supply chain vendors, threatening to delay timely shipment of your product. At the same time, a potential opportunity appears that, with some exploration and investment, could lead to a new generation of products down the road. Which do you respond to first? You probably reach for your firefighter’s hat to extinguish the short-term problem. And therein lies a bigger problem. Leaders and organizations are under more stress than ever to do two things simultaneously: deliver on today’s pressing commitments by troubleshooting and refining processes; and find and invest in innovation opportunities that will create tomorrow’s success. How your organization responds to this stress in allocating scarce resources is a crucial but often unaddressed issue. The natural bias is to respond immediately to what is in front of you (like answering endless emails as they come in, for instance). The problem is, this instinct crowds out longer term, innovative thinking.

Changes in the U.S. Economic Geography

Changes in the U.S. Economic Geography | Innovations in the Market | Scoop.it
In 1990, the manufacturing industry was the leading employer in most U.S. states, followed by retail trade. In 2003, retail trade was the leading employer in a majority of states. By 2013, health care and social assistance was the dominant industry in 34 states. This animated map shows the top industry in each state and the District of Columbia from 1990 to 2013.

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 14, 2014 6:42 PM

According to the map, in 1990, manufacturing had the highest employment rates. By the early 2000's, it appears that retail trade has then taken the top spot for employment rates. Finally in 2013, most of the US is covering in orange, which represents employment in the health care and social assistance work field. When I opened the article, all these facts were written above the map. However, I did not even notice the written facts because I was too busy playing with the map. This article tells us the facts but does not really elaborate on why things have changed. For one thing, I think  the manufacturing job market decreased because once the products were being made to be sold, retail took it from there. Of course manufacturers were still needed to supply items, but then retail takes it over. Health care and social assistance services were both in the top by 2013. This is probably because more people who were certified in medical fields were needed. Thus they were hired, which lead this job market to the top.

Danielle Lip's curator insight, January 26, 4:19 PM

I found it quite interesting to see that most of the world in 1990 had manufacturing jobs because working at factories was the only job that was accessible with not many health care service oppurtunities. While in 2013 health care takes up most of North America, when you might expect the majority of North America to be made up of retail trade because so many malls and building are being constructed throughout the world. One positive part of this map is that job opportunities were even there in the first place, without working the economy will go downhill.

Lora Tortolani's curator insight, February 2, 6:49 PM

It's amazing to see how priorities have shifted over time.  Also, this is a great display of how technology has taken over what once was human labor.

The Global Innovation Index

The Global Innovation Index | Innovations in the Market | Scoop.it
Bloomberg's 2015 ranking of the world's 50 most innovative countries takes a more prosaic approach to the question, focusing on six tangible activities that contribute to innovation. South Korea tops this year's overall ranking. The U.S. places sixth, and China 22nd. Morocco finishes last. You can click here to go straight to the full results, but don't do that just yet. The point of this list isn't to award bragging rights to one country over another—it's to see whether a broad formula for innovation can in fact be identified, and what companies, and governments, need to do to reproduce it.

How good are strategic intelligence forecasts?

How good are strategic intelligence forecasts? | Innovations in the Market | Scoop.it

A IRPP Research Program Study. they did serve two important functions. First, they reminded analysts what the words they were using were supposed to mean. Second, they provided an invaluable source of information that could be used to answer the accuracy question.

When we met, Alan was already tackling that question by keeping track of how events in the world that were forecasted actually turned out. To know how accurate forecasts are, one must also know what eventually happened. Yet such ex post facto tracking is hardly ever done by intelligence organizations. That’s not too surprising either, given how much time it takes to keep careful, systematic track of the past.

Too Late To Start? Why Success Doesn't Have An Expiration Date

Too Late To Start? Why Success Doesn't Have An Expiration Date | Innovations in the Market | Scoop.it

Does success really have an expiration date? Is there an actual deadline you have to meet before you cant be successful? And if you answered yes to all of these questions, whats the best age to succeed? Let me break it down for you; time has, with no exceptions what so ever, no expiration date. It’s never too early to start a venture. It’s never too late to become great. Whatever rationalized concept or idea you have, imagining that there is a strict correlation between age and success, forget about it! Because at the end of the day success is what we all strive for and the only people who “cant” achieve it, are the ones who put up imaginary barriers between them and their goal.
