Accounting Comparability And Corporate Innovative Efficiency

We posit that when a subject firm has greater accounting comparability with industry peer firms it facilitates that firm’s learning from peer firm investments leading to better investments by the subject firm. Therefore, we expect firms with greater accounting comparability with industry peers to generate more and higher quality innovations, which are key determinants of corporate innovative efficiency.

Failing Actually Isn't All That Cool | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Twice in the past month, I have come across articles about Fortune 100 companies losing a massive amount of money, time and effort because a new “innovation” did not turn out as planned. To avoid adding insult to injury I’ll avoid spilling on which companies these are; suffice to say they are virtually universally known in business circles.

Singapore has yet to produce a truly innovative startup. Here’s why.

It is no overstatement to say that, over the past couple of years, Web 2.0, sometimes called the “second .com boom” has changed the world.

European innovation scoreboard shows established inequalities persisting

European innovation scoreboard shows established inequalities persisting | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The European Commission today releases the 2016 edition of its Innovation Scoreboard, which looks an awful lot like the 2015 version: happy green colors to the north and west contrasted against underperforming yellows and oranges to the south and east. This has been the map of European prosperity for at least the past century and, unfortunately, it doesn't look like the trends across the continent will do anything to redress the balance.

This innovative bike helmet could make cycling in traffic so much safer | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Sharing the road with vehicles is a constant threat to cyclists. Everyone has a story of a motorist (knowingly or unknowingly) running them off the road.
