A MOOC Star Defects, at Least for Now

A MOOC Star Defects, at Least for Now | Innovation management - making it work research | Scoop.it
Mitchell Duneier loved teaching sociology to 40,000 students online. But, fearing that legislators will use MOOCs like his to gut public colleges, he put it on hold.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Personally: I think experimenting with the mix of real class and a MOOC as for example a replacement or addition to the articles/books people read can be of great value... and in general: let the debate about the use and purpose begin. 

 

"It's unclear how many professors have been invited to license their courses. Another MOOC-teaching Princeton professor, Jeremy Adelman, says he has not been approached with an offer like the one Mr. Duneier received. Starting in September, he will once again teach "A History of the World Since 1300" on Coursera."

IT Governance is Killing Innovation

IT Governance is Killing Innovation | Innovation management - making it work research | Scoop.it
Traditional project-centric approaches to IT are outdated.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Unfortunately, when it comes to IT's ability to allocate investments in response to the new work environment, traditional governance processes prove grossly outdated.  Some of the key challenges:

Companies don't identify the very best ideas for investment because most capital allocation processes start with business partners' existing ideas about projects to fund.  As we've noted in our previous blog, senior business partners might not be that knowledgeable about what actually drives productivity on the front lines.Companies allocate capital to the wrong investments because our traditional emphasis on ROI-based business cases undermines IT's ability to invest in high-return-but-hard-to-measure areas like improving knowledge worker productivity.Companies tend to spread their capital allocation bets too thinly across business groups or functions, often for political reasons. This practice helps 'keep the peace' but means that often the most transformational opportunities get short-changed.

The Triumph of Science | Activities | Nexus Institute

The Triumph of Science | Activities | Nexus Institute | Innovation management - making it work research | Scoop.it

When science will have answered all questions on man, will we then know the secret of man? In 1959, British scientist and novelist C.P. Snow pointed to the growing gap between the ‘two cultures’, between the truth claims of hard science on the one hand and the ‘lived’ truth of the humanities on the other.

Welcome To The Unicorn Club: Learning From Billion-Dollar Startups | TechCrunch

gideon.shimshon's insight:

4. But enterprise-oriented unicorns have become worth more on average, and raised much less private capital, delivering a higher return on private investment.

5. Companies fall somewhat evenly into four major business models: consumer e-commerce, consumer audience, software-as-a-service, and enterprise software.

6. It has taken seven-plus years on average before a “liquidity event” for companies, not including the third of our list that is still private. It’s a long journey beyond vesting periods.

7. Inexperienced, twentysomething founders were an outlier. Companies with well-educated, thirtysomething co-founders who have history together have built the most successes

Design and the circular economy: toasters that won't be binned

Design and the circular economy:  toasters that won't be binned | Innovation management - making it work research | Scoop.it
After looking at how a chair manufacturer redesigned its products with their future life in mind, Rich Gilbert decided to apply the same thinking to the toaster
gideon.shimshon's insight:

Designing a product without an understanding of where it will end up is useless.

We wanted to see how we could apply this thinking to electrical products. We had seen from the recycling centres that anything smaller than the diameter of a household bin is unlikely to get recycled, so  we decided to design toasters, a simple everyday product. We named our toasters the Realist, the Pragmatist and the Optimist.

The price of creating a connected future

The price of creating a connected future | Innovation management - making it work research | Scoop.it
Future generations will live in a world more connected in almost every way, but how will human interaction suffer, asks author Tad Williams.
gideon.shimshon's insight:

We are  Data hunter gatherers

We are social animals, but as the dangers of being different have diminished since we started (the presence of large predators can do a lot to compel uniformity) individualism has become a greater and greater force in our societies and ourselves. Modern technology is one big reason, and two very powerful forces are now rapidly altering the dynamics of self-versus-society – monofocus and the transfer of allegiance from vertical societies to more fluid, horizontal groups.

 

The change in perspective won't stop there. Technological shifts are moving us closer to our own physical selves as well.
