Innovation in and of itself presents challenges to companies that strategize to gain more market share or to stimulate growth. As executives seek to produce innovative products or offer innovative services, they often run into problems of finding an optimal means for effectively managing innovation risk. A recent Harvard Business Review article examines the realities of risks associated with managing innovation and provides helpful “food-for-thought” ideas about effective ways to frame an organization’s approach to managing innovation risk.

Marlon Waithe's insight:
I like this article because when you are running a large facility you must have some sort of emergency management in place in case of a disaster during a sport event etc..being trained is the first thing to do in order to be more efficient in managing the facility.
TAMPA, Fla. -- Almost two years after the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce dove head-first into the Rays' Stadium Saga, the influential group will release its findings today on "best practices" to fund a new Rays stadium.
The Tampa chamber teamed up with the St. Pete chamber for the study, dubbing their group of prominent business leaders the "Baseball Stadium Financing Caucus."
The group, which has been supportive of a new stadium in Tampa Bay without delving into preferred locations, has been meeting behind closed doors for the better part of the last 18 months.
Monday's press conference is likely to address the elephant in the room: location of a new stadium may not matter as much as finding a way to finance it.
While the timing of the announcement could be better - a recent firesale of talent by the Miami Marlins has cast public subsidies of stadiums in a negative light - the group is hoping its ideas can break the stadium stalemate the Rays and the region have been locked in for the last few years.
The NFL is getting more serious about conduct in the stands.
This year, its teams are requiring any fan who gets ejected from a stadium to take a four-hour online course before they are permitted to come back into the facility again.
The course, designed by psychotherapist Dr. Ari Novick in tandem with the MetLife Stadium security director Daniel DeLorenzi, focuses on alcohol abuse, anger management and crude behavior. A handful of teams have used the course over the past couple seasons, but this summer, as part of a review of their best practices, every team decided to enforce the course on offending fans this season.
Novick said when fans get ejected from a game this year, they will be sent a letter that encourages them to apologize to the team and complete the course. If they fail to meet the requirement, and they are caught on stadium property, they are told they could be arrested for trespassing.
Not only do fans have to take the course if they want to come back to the stadium, they have to pay for it, too. Costs vary by team. The Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons charge the least at $50, while the New England Patriots charge a league-high $100. When a fan completes the course, Novick's company forwards that information to the club.
Skeptics might wonder how teams are going to keep track of ejected fans from week to week. Ray DiNunzio, the NFL's director of strategic security, told ESPN the monitoring will vary by team but could at some point involve facial recognition technology.
Approximately 7,000 people were ejected from NFL stadiums last season. The number varied by team but some teams are known to be more strict in certain areas than others. The Oakland Raiders, for example, have a zero-tolerance policy for smoking. DiNunzio said the Raiders could eject up to 300 fans a game for lighting up...
