With the QUANT e-Sportlimousine, nanoFLOWCELL AG presents the first electric car equipped with nanoFLOWCELL® drive. The prototype is set to generate new impulses for research into battery development.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

El Quant es definitivamente el auto del futuro. Después de 15 años de investigación la empresa alemana Nanoflowcell ha creado un coche único. Es un coche eléctrico, pero que no usa baterías para almacenar la energía, sino soluciones iónicas en movimiento que producen electricidad  y que permiten el funcionamiento de sus cuatro (4) motores eléctricos, uno en cada rueda.  Además permite una velocidad punta de casi 350 km/h, alcanzar los 100 km/h en 2,8 segundos y una autonomía de casi 600 km.

Innovation and Building a Next Generation Organization

Innovation and Building a Next Generation Organization | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
All over the world, organisations are emerging from hibernation, once again stretching their limbs and flexing their corporate muscles ready for a post-recession drive for the future. But whilst hibernating, hunkering down and minimising risk in an effort to survive, the world and customers continued to move on at an ever-increasing pace.

Via Alberto Acereda, PhD
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Transforming an organisational culture into one of openness and innovation won’t happen overnight. And it certainly won’t come about unless considerable thought is put into designing the new culture, developing innovation leaders and training every employee in a new way of thinking and behaving. Sadly, for many, the recent surveys indicate there is some way to go on the road to becoming a Next Generation Organisation and driving innovation-led growth.

 

Intelligence – 60% of major UK company directors admit their leadership teams fail to understand their customers.

Collaboration – 66% of major UK business leaders claim their current organisational structure makes it difficult to share knowledge and understanding.

Adaptability – 68% of UK corporates take just as long to innovate and get solutions to market now as they did five years ago.

 

Intelligence, Collaboration, Adaptability; all of these require something far more than facts and rulebooks. Put bluntly if you think that sentiment or soft skills have no place in business then innovation is never going to get beyond a note in your annual report or a marketing strapline."

Alberto Acereda, PhD's curator insight, July 29, 11:25 AM

According to the article: "Building a ‘Next Generation Organisation’ is based on my latest thinking and working with some of the worlds most successful organisations and it boils down to three core attributes – Intelligence, Collaboration and Adaptability. The first challenge for organisations is ‘Intelligence’ and moving away from traditional approaches to data and insight. The second challenge is around ‘Collaboration’ and the re-design of cultures, networks, strategic partnerships and increasing co-creation. And the final challenge ‘Adaptability’ focuses on speeding up the commercialisation of innovation in order to bring bigger ideas to market faster."

Social Learning Trends

Social Learning Trends | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Is your company considering using social learning as part of your training and development program? Research suggests that this can be very beneficial. 

Via Vladimir Kukharenko
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"Take for example the 70/20/10 learning philosophy, a concept is based on research done by Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger at the Center for Creative Leadership. Their research states that people learn:

70% through job experience and problem-solving 20% from others 10% from formal courses and reading

When you compare the percentage gained from formal learning to the percentage gained through collaboration with others, it’s no wonder that social learning is rapidly gaining corporate buy-in and employee appreciation."
