Here's Why Emotions Are The Secret Sauce Of Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Many business leaders tell me that one of their top priorities is increasing the quality and speed of their organizational innovation. Faster and better is now being applied to innovation just as it has been applied for decades to operational excellence.

The New York Times today released a 35-page internal report, “Journalism that stands apart,” as a follow up to its widely read 2014 Innovation Report. The Innovation Report was a blistering take on the Times’ digital shortcomings.

Turn Your Organization into an Idea Factory: Part I

Turn Your Organization into an Idea Factory: Part I | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Up to 80 percent of an organization’s improvement potential could come from frontline employee ideas. However, the average employee suggestion box or idea program gets less than 10 percent adoption, has fewer than .5 ideas per employee per year and can hurt employee engagement. High performing employee idea management programs, on the other hand, have over 50 percent adoption, many ideas per employee, and make a significant contribution to the bottom line. Even more, it results in increased productivity and employee engagement.

Your Employees Hold The Key To Innovation

Your Employees Hold The Key To Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation remains a key focus and stated priority for many organizations, and for good reason. The world is enamored with Uber, Airbnb, and other disruptive company success stories. For leadership, it creates both a desire to create their own equally disruptive offerings and a fear of becoming obsolete. But with disruption leading the conversations around innovation, have we lost sight of the value of continuous improvement? Research indicates that much of the time, it’s these small, incremental changes that yield much better results.

Following the UK's leave vote, Dublin was found to be the second most attractive financial center in Europe by a PwC survey – and although London still topped the poll, uncertainty over the terms of Britain's exit from Europe make the Irish challenger more appealing by the day.

Should Apple Pursue the Stale Automotive Industry?

Should Apple Pursue the Stale Automotive Industry? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Chris Lattner’s jump from Apple(AAPL) to Tesla is surprising. That’s like leaving NASA to go work for a company that makes horse saddles. As I had written yesterday, the whole self-driving car thing is wildly overblown. Autonomous vehicles and electric powertrains are lipstick on a very mature pig. Regardless of what Peter Thiel thinks, the real exciting things in tech in the future will be outgrowths of the smartphone market, because moving information, not pounds, is where the value is.

Intel believes 5G wireless could reach far beyond smartphones to smart things

Intel believes 5G wireless could reach far beyond smartphones to smart things | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The Internet of Things is expected to grow quickly to tens of billions of connected devices, from smart refrigerators to smart showers to smart cruise ships.

But at some point, the wireless data networks won’t be able to handle all that traffic from the connected devices. That’s why tech companies want to upgrade to 5G wireless, which is a fifth-generation mobile network that can transmit data at gigabits per second, compared to the single-digit megabits per second that we get today on our smartphones.
