Shareable: Collaborative Consumption is Overrated

Shareable: Collaborative Consumption is Overrated | sustainable innovation | Scoop.it

Don't get me wrong, I like collaborative consumption. I think Airbnb makes the world a more interesting place, allowing people have more authentic travel experiences. I love TaskRabbit. I use it all the time for errands. I've written about tool libraries for MAKE Magazine. I get it. Access is certainly more appealing that ownership. For my lifestyle, at least.

Accor : la RSE comme arme de différenciation | sustainable innovation | Scoop.it

La RSE nouveau levier marketing ? Certains grands groupes l'ont compris. Aux PME de s'emparer aussi du sujet. Perçue comme une contrainte de plus, la responsabilité sociale des entreprises (RSE) pourrait, au contraire, les aider à se différencier face à la concurrence. C'est la conviction de Marc Jacouton, consultant spécialiste du développement durable et par ailleurs directeur marketing de Cepovett, une PME spécialiste du vêtement de travail. « Les consommateurs aussi vont de plus en plus en tenir compte dans leur choix », estime Marc Jacouton qui mise sur l'effet d'entraînement de ces nouvelles attentes.Sophie Flak, directrice du développement durable et de l'Académie Accor, retient trois points essentiels pour sensibiliser la clientèle et d'une certaine façon lui « vendre » la RSE.

Thierry Curty's comment, August 1, 2013 10:36 AM
C'est une absurdité ce rapport. Si aujourd'hui l'obsolescence programmée est à honnir, hier elle a apporté le travail et enrichissement à tout le monde.

C'est grâce (ou â cause) de l'obsolescence programmée que la population a pu se multiplier comme ça.

Non seulement ça, mais elle a aussi financé l'espérance de vie, la sécurité sociale, la retraite, les vacances, l'école. Grâce à cette formidable richesse issue de la consommation, l'ouvrier a pu apprendre à lire, il a acquis des capacités cognitives qui lui ont donné accès à la démocratie. Sans l'obsolescence programmée, la démocratie plurale et son corollaire, le vote censitaire, existeraient vraisemblablement toujours, tout simplement par manque d'éducation dans la population.

Alors, changer de paradigme est une chose, mais il faut tout-de-même prendre conscience du bien-fondé des choses.

Oui, l'obsolescence programmée doit être abolie! Mais aujourd'hui, C'EST POSSIBLE, pas auparavant. Désormais, la technologie permet —pour reprendre le fameux exemple de l'imprimante de salon qui a le tampon d'encre plein— d'imaginer des équipements modulaires. Une imprimante pourrait être un amalgame de modules : un chargeur de papier, un dispositif d'impression, un scanner, une partie commande, une alimentation et un boîtier dans lequel tout ceci trouve sa place. Lorsqu'un module lâche, on ne remplace que le module, qui part dans un circuit de collecte où il est testé puis reconditionné ou recyclé. Le changement de module pourra être l'occasion d'une mise à jour du fabricant ou de l'acheteur, qui pourra peut-être augmenter l'efficacité de sa machine. Quoi qu'il en soit, des années plus tard, sa machine ne ressemblera peut-être plus du tout à la machine d'origine, ni dans le fonctionnement, ni dans l'aspect, pourtant une seule imprimante aura été produite.

Donc, on peut faire les choses, bien évidemment, mais il ne faut pas cracher dans la soupe qui nous a fait grandir.

In business, the online and offline worlds follow the same rules. It has always been about the needs of audiences before businesses’.

 

Will 2013 be the year when all businesses wake up to this reality?

 

“In our Outlook 2013 series, a colleague of mine, Jacques Bughin, had an interesting piece about customer experience. He made the excellent point that in a time where people can check prices easily and use all sorts of third party platforms to research products, customer experience is becoming an important way to differentiate yourself and get (and keep) more customers.”

Dave Phillipson's curator insight, January 14, 2013 11:23 AM

While Equity-based crowdfunding may not see the light of day until 2015, there is plenty of abuse going on in the crowd-funding market place.   Not only are 'event promotors' raking in gads of money by posing themselves as experts on something that not even the legal beagles have put a stamp on yet, but companies that are not ready to perform, are taking millions of dollars from the economy by making promises they can't keep.

This story uncovers one of the biggest.

All investments contain risk and any or all of any investment can be put at risk.   Managing risk is paramount in a recovering economy, on all sides of the coin.

10 reasons why companies fail at business model innovation

10 reasons why companies fail at business model innovation | sustainable innovation | Scoop.it

Companies fail at business model innovation because they're so busy pedalling the bicycle of current business models they leave no time or resource to design new ones.

 

Most companies focus innovation efforts on new products and on driving efficiencies into current models. These are important activities, but not sufficient in the 21st century when business models don't last as long and face disruption. This means business model innovation is the new strategic imperative. In this post I outline the top 10 reasons why businesses fail to innovate.

Global Businesses That Capitalize on Consumer Behavior Changes Will Thrive


Via janlgordon, Stephane Bilodeau, François GARREAU

janlgordon's curator insight, January 26, 2013 3:46 PM

This article and infographic is based on research from Accenture - They have found striking differences between fast and slow-growing companies. Whether you're a global business or a national brand, there is something in here for everyone.


Please CLICK ON THIS LINK TO GO TO ARTICLE: bit.ly/WsB6Vw


Here is what the report covers:

 

**Draws on research from four sources:


**a global consumer behavior survey (10,000 online consumers),


a **global executive survey (600 business executives),


**industry-growth leader analysis of the world's top 3,000 listed companies by market capitalization and macroeconomic analysis with Oxford Economics.


Here are a few highlights that caught my attention:


**See opportunity in consumer behavior change


**Consumer behavior-driven markets are expected to grow at three and a half times the rate of emerging economies and times the rate of developed economies between now and 2016


**One of the key insights that Accenture brings as a result of some of its latest research is,


**you have to look beyond the ‘who’ and the ‘where’ of what is
happening in consumer segments to really understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’


**looking at how consumer behaviour is changing and the pace and scale of that change can be even faster than the
growth rates in emerging markets.

Infographic that contrasts consumer behaviors in emergng versus developed markets.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, January 27, 2013 8:54 AM

Accenture research shows that global businesses that capitalize on consumer behavior changes can achieve greater growth.

 

A growing opportunity 

By aggregating estimates of market size for industries and sectors associated with behavior change, the research indicates a growth opportunity of US$2.4 trillion over the four-year period from 2012 to 2016.
