How Open Innovation Increases Consumer Value

How Open Innovation Increases Consumer Value | Innovating Growth | Scoop.it

What to break some rules ...

 

Today’s most innovative companies recognize that it is not unique technology or features alone that drive winning innovations, but the value and impact that those innovations contribute to their customers. Just as marketers must now engage in intimate social media conversations with consumers, R&D must utilize new methods & processes, operating closer to their end user than ever before.

 

By leveraging Open Innovation throughout each phase of the development process enterprises can ensure that their output is relevant and authentic, thereby de-risking projects and increasing the likelihood of market success.

Google Is Trying To Give The Entire World Internet Access With High-Flying Balloons

Google Is Trying To Give The Entire World Internet Access With High-Flying Balloons | Innovating Growth | Scoop.it

How do you deliver Internet access to the entire planet? Google revealed this month that global Internet access is one of the "moonshot" programs the company is working on at the Google[x] lab, which is also working on self-driving car technology.

 

Project Loon’s goal is to build a ring of solar-powered, high-pressure balloons that hover 12.5 miles above the ground--twice as high as airplanes fly. The balloons deliver Internet access (at 3G-like speeds) on open-frequency radio bands. Anyone on the ground who’s in a building equipped with a special antenna can log on.
