Innovation for the Dotcloud Revolution

Innovation for the Dotcloud Revolution | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The 1990s were known for more than the unkempt grunge look in fashion. The dotcom boom reigned supreme as well. Even though dotcommers seemed to take pride in their lack of fashion sense and innovation in the pervasive hoodie and jeans combinations they preferred, this era delivered some of the greatest technology innovations that changed how we see the world.

Innovation In Fear-Based Cultures? Or, why hire lions to be dogs? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Command-and-control, top-down organizations have the most trouble innovating.

Fixing the Power Grid through Open Markets and New Technologies

The electric power system makes our modern, mobile, information-age economy possible. But it is organized in much the same way it was in 1884, when Thomas Edison created the first system of power plants to light up homes and businesses in lower Manhattan. By way of comparison, the iPhone, which is the spiritual descendent of the telegraph, packs more computing power in a user's pocket than mainframes that once filled entire rooms. Meanwhile, the electric system is still built around central generating plants delivering power to customers via a monopoly provider—the local utility company.

How To Disrupt Using Reverse Innovation

How To Disrupt Using Reverse Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation is not the same for everyone and can come in many shapes and forms. Which model to choose is often a hard question, but testing and experimenting is a good practice to start with. Today, many companies tend to choose a disruptive model, where they jump in an existing gap at the bottom of the market and make their way up until they replace incumbents. But successful cases of this approach are a rarity rather than common place.

Businesses are like sharks: if they stop moving they die.

In a traditional team, everyone knows their job and what’s expected of them. This is certainly true of the pit crew of a Formula 1 car team, for example. However, for the team charged with innovating and eliciting change in a fast moving and ambiguous environment, clarity of this order can be counter-productive.

Self-driving cars will need to "build up a relationship" with their occupants to reassure them that they are safe, according to BMW board director Peter Schwarzenbauer.

Speaking to Dezeen, Schwarzenbauer said that psychological barriers were now bigger obstacles to driverless technology than legal ones.

"I don't think regulation, insurance and those kinds of barriers will hold back this kind of technology," he said. "I think we are going to find solutions to overcome them."

Why Is Innovation So F*cking Difficult?

You’re an engineer. Let’s say you’re charismatic enough to have the persuasion skills to pull other engineers to you. You decide to take the startup route, packaging yourself, your colleagues and an aspect of your research as ‘doing X for Y within a market’ where the market size is something in the X$billions.
