Drucker on Innovation Opportunities

Drucker on Innovation Opportunities | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Still the most renowned and cited management consultant in recent times, the Austrian Peter Drucker, offered a radical view of business endeavors.   He claimed the purpose of a business is to create a customer – and thus, the only business activities that add value are innovation and marketing, and the rest are costs (Peter’s profound insight was that the world was moving from the Marxist industrial worker to the modern, knowledge worker).

As a result, even successful products can expect to enjoy an advantage in the market for a shorter time than in the past. Companies need services to grow and develop competitive advantage, if they want to avoid the commodity trap.

Evolution from digitisation to digital transformation, with big data as a key mover

Evolution from digitisation to digital transformation, with big data as a key mover | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Digitisation? Digitalisation? Digital Transformation? For some, the words have become interchangeable, but they do mean different things. Put simply, digitisation is converting a physical object into its digital twin, or turning a manual process into an automated workflow. A photo is scanned into a computer. A sound is recorded to a computer. A copier collates your report.

Ten Things Great Leaders Do To Get People On Board With Change

Ten Things Great Leaders Do To Get People On Board With Change | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Change isn’t easy. Even change for the better. Great leaders know this and don’t pretend otherwise. Yet they also know that embracing change with the right mindset - one that is open to learning and "unlearning" on-the-go - is paramount to creating an environment where change isn't just a once in a decade occurrence to be endured, but an integral part of their organisation's DNA to be embraced and enjoyed.

Is a “robot tax” really an “innovation penalty”? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When Bill Gates recently suggested robots should pay income tax like any other employee, I didn’t immediately disagree. I applaud Gates’ bold thinking to help solve one of society’s biggest upcoming challenges: embracing automation in a way that “lifts all boats” instead of leaving large swaths of society behind.

To Innovate in a Big Company, Don’t Think “Us Against Them”

To Innovate in a Big Company, Don’t Think “Us Against Them” | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
“This seems like pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking. Have you actually seen this done?”

I often hear this question when I visit companies and speak about how to make an innovative idea less terrifying to high level executives. The skepticism is warranted. There are plenty of pundits arguing that big companies need to innovate, and pointing out that it is difficult to do so. Far less often do we hear how it really comes together, especially inside a large organization.

The role of a leader is paramount to a team.
Imagine an orchestra that has all the best musicians in the world except a conductor. Though every member can play perfectly on their own, if they come together, they will only produce incompatible melody; an orchestra can only create harmonious music when it is led by a conductor.
