Your Secret Weapon to Innovation: Vacation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
You know the feeling that creeps up when you’ve been sitting in your office for an hour too long and the objects on your desk start blending in with each other? You might show up in the morning ready for a productive day, then once you sit down it’s like you never left. I feel as though I’m told, “You need a vacation,” too frequently, but I’ve come to believe there’s some real truth to that statement.

Rethinking Design Thinking

Rethinking Design Thinking - Fahrenheit 212 - Medium

Design Thinking, the widely celebrated innovation model built on observation and prototyping, seems overdue to be assessed with the same scrutiny and iterative spirit it asks us to aim at everything else.

It’s time now to say, “Ok, we’ve used Design Thinking and prototyped this thing… what have we learned about creating new products, new services and new businesses? What’s working in our innovation and what’s not? What should the next model do that this one can’t?”

We've Become So Obsessed With 'Innovation' That It's Now Meaningless

We've Become So Obsessed With 'Innovation' That It's Now Meaningless | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The word "innovation" and its many derivatives have come to define the state of business today. Every company, regardless of size, the service they provide or the product they produce wants to at least be perceived as being innovative, regardless of the reality.

Building Smart City with Internet of Things

Building Smart City with Internet of Things | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Do you like the idea of living in a city with which you can interact – a living city with which you can set up a reciprocal relationship and which can cater to your needs. Throughout the world such cities are being built right from Masdar in Abu Dhabi to Songdo in South Korea. It is predicted that by 2050, about 75% of the world’s population will live in cities. This will put a huge strain on the already stretched resources of the city such as its transport system and emergency networks. To handle the huge influx of people our urban planners need to come up with new and innovative ways to increase the efficiency of existing resources while at the same time reducing costs and improving the overall quality of life of its citizens.

Anyone familiar with the back stories of Thomas Edison or George Washington Carver will note that their labs were not only places of great invention but also of great learning.
