Why R&D Is Not Business Model Innovation

Why R&D Is Not Business Model Innovation | Models, ideas, frameworks for business transformation | Scoop.it
In this post we'll quickly explain how traditional Research & Development
(R&D) is limited in its ability to understand if new business ideas will
result in value to the customer, and value to the company. 
Frederic Etiemble's insight:

Why R&D is not enough...

"Kodak was a pretty innovative company, but its emphasis on product innovation and R&D did not stop the company from going bankrupt. Despite inventing the core technology that's used in digital cameras today, Kodak's technology innovation wasn't enough for the company to figure out a business model that could be a central piece to its future growth strategy."

How to run a company with (almost) no rules

How to run a company with (almost) no rules | Models, ideas, frameworks for business transformation | Scoop.it
What if your job didn’t control your life? Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to). It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about. Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?
Frederic Etiemble's insight:

Ricardo Semler: "how many people do you know who on their death beds said, boy, I wish I had spent more time at the office? So there's a whole thing of having the courage now -- not in a week, not in two months, not when you find out you have something -- to say, no, what am I doing this for?"

That says it all...

The Unfinished Business of Organizational Transformation

The Unfinished Business of Organizational Transformation | Models, ideas, frameworks for business transformation | Scoop.it
Many large, traditional organizations and their famously successful leaders have embarked on ambitious missions to "create, operate and trade" new businesses to compete with disrupters in an ever-changing economy.

Could be the beginning of a fascinating series...

The descriptions of the top 4 change drivers resonate with a lot of the frustrations I've heard from executives about to embark in organizational transformation: "our processes are too heavy", "we're not customer-centric enough", "we're too slow to innovative", "too many of our employees are disengaged".

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Dan Pink on a mission to upgrade the OS of the 21st century businesses:

"if we really want high performance on those definitional tasks of the 21st century, the solution is not to do more of the wrong things, to entice people with a sweeter carrot, or threaten them with a sharper stick. We need a whole new approach."
