UP' Magazine - Une conversation à bâton rompu sur l’innovation avec le Professeur Pierre Joliot

UP' Magazine - Une conversation à bâton rompu sur l’innovation avec le Professeur Pierre Joliot | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

C'est dans le cadre prestigieux de l'Institut de Biologie physico-chimique que le Professeur Pierre Joliot a reçu UP' Magazine pour un entretien exclusif. Un petit bureau ressemblant davantage à une cellule de moine, rempli d'un fouillis de livres et de dossiers et du fameux tableau blanc couvert de chiffres, de formules complexes et mystérieuses ; le quartier de la rue d'Ulm à Paris, concentré d'intelligence, d'éthique de la recherche fondamentale. Une conversation à bâton rompu sur l'innovation.

Entrepreneurship: Risks You Need to Consider (Infographic)

Entrepreneurship: Risks You Need to Consider (Infographic) | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

While entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes, one commonality binds them all together: the willingness to take a risk.

 

This Dun & Bradstreet Credibility infographic encapsulates many of the struggles and fears that small business owners have to overcome, including the ultimate risk of closure or bankruptcy. If you hear that Mark Zuckerberg is 28 and think that your opportunity to strike out has passed you by already, think again: Most company founders are middle aged, according to the infographic.

 

Being an entrepreneur is less about fitting into the Silicon Valley mold than it is about having courage, perseverance and ambition.

The Collaborative Organization Manifesto

The Collaborative Organization Manifesto | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Recently I had the opportunity to share my thoughts on collaboration in something I put together for Changethis.com. It’s a bit of a manifesto which I think fits nicely as a precursor to The Collaborative Organization. In this document I try to focus a bit more on the broader need and implications for collaboration inside the enterprise. A good portion of the content in this document is actually not in the book, yet it is still quite relevant. I talk about the many moving parts that are required for collaboration to successfuly take place and explore the broader impacts of collaboration outside of the workplace, something which I find to be very interesting.

A SymbioCity in Malmö: From industrial area to city of tomorrow | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

A once decaying industrial area has transformed into an exciting, sustainable urban environment with a bright future. Sustainability inspired the architects behind this eco-city within a city. The Western Harbour now has its own energy supply and waste treatment system, very few cars – and plenty of satisfied residents.

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

"...Online delivery, though, provides the opportunity to take an entirely new approach. Instead of 24 lectures, great online lecturers prepare around 400 sessions, eight to 10 minutes long, ending with a short quiz. Students’ answers to those quizzes determine which part of the course they progress to next.

So, students doing the same unit will start at the same point, but their journey through the material will be entirely different; some will need to interact with every one of the presentations while others may need to interact with far fewer of them. And students may interact with the same number of presentations, but in an entirely different sequence.

In this mode, students' experience is completely personal and adaptive to the way in which they are learning..."
