After 88 years on U.K.’s high streets, British Home Stores (BHS) shut their doors for the last time on Sunday, 28 August, 2016. This was a sad occasion, especially for former employees, who are still not sure how a $747 million pensions black hole will be resolved. As the administrators continue to sell store fixtures and fittings to recoup some money for creditors, a question that has arisen among commentators is why BHS failed.
Jarenlang liet Capi Europe zijn lichtgewicht bloempotten (zie voorbeeld boven) maken in China en Vietnam, om ze vervolgens te verschepen naar Europa. Totdat het bedrijf een aantal jaren geleden besloot om weer in thuisbasis Tilburg te gaan produceren. Inmiddels werken in de productielocatie van het bedrijf in Tilburg-Oost zo’n 60 mensen, bijgestaan door diverse robots.
When Steve Jobs was trying to lure John Sculley to be Apple’s CEO in the early 1980’s, he asked him, “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” Sculley would achieve little at Apple, but Jobs would later make it the most valuable company on the planet.
We’ve all heard the statistic: 90 percent of startups will fail. And a big reason why is that they don’t recognize and realize the need to change — whether that’s a partial or a complete transformation. The power of the pivot can make the difference between a company being in that 90 percent or in the 10 percent that succeed.
Each year INSEAD team up with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) and Cornell University to produce an innovation league table for the countries of the world. It’s designed to rank the infrastructure and support environment for innovation around the world.
De wereldbevolking stijgt, de voedselproductie volgt niet en jongeren hebben amper interesse in het boerenleven. Experts doen een oproep om via innovatieve technologie jongeren warm te maken voor het beroep van landbouwer.
The web today is far more than a network or platform - it’s also our collective canvas. A global public canvas is an exceptional thing. It spurs innovation and creativity. It unlocks opportunity, empowers educators and fuels economies. In the 21st century, we should have laws that enshrine the power of the web.
The age of innovation is here. Both behind the scenes and at the consumer level, footwear firms are angling to become better technology-design companies. And why shouldn’t they? Abundant consumer data has aided curation and customization to make firms more powerful than ever before.
Education is ripe for disruptive change leading to innovative practices that improve learning outcomes for our students. What might have worked in the past will not necessarily have the same impact today, as the world has changed dramatically in a short period of time.
What became of the Stanley Steamer, the manual typewriter, or the black-and-white television? With our endless focus on the shiny and new, it’s easy to forget that no technology lasts forever. Examining the birth and death of old technologies, though, can yield new insights into the nature of innovation.
Pharma mergers might boost short-term profits. But long-term value? Think again, because everyone knows that big mergers hurt innovation. That’s the claim, at least, repeated by critics every time a major pharma combo hits the news.
The initial launch of tech-infused fashion was met with sneers and scepticism. Since the fashion and tech worlds have hardly ever collided before, it seems at first a marriage of opposites. These devices were expensive and in some cases, inaccurate. That’s changed. Today, smart clothes and wearable tech have been featured at New York’s Fashion Week as well as shows by Rebecca Minkoff and Tory Burch, among others.
“Innovative” tops the list of attitudes today’s companies say define their top performers. But one of the biggest problems in hiring for innovation (and other similarly abstract concepts) is that every company defines innovation a bit differently. Your definition of innovation may include taking big risks, or maybe it involves building support for your big ideas. You may focus on the ideational parts of innovation while other companies are concerned with the implementation.
For example, think about the salary cost (and associated risk) of having thirty people (many of them senior leaders) coming together for a day-long innovation strategy workshop without taking advantage of all the inputs we can. We think lowering risks in these situations ALL THE TIME.
A challenging economic environment, rapidly changing customer preferences and a strong competitive pressure: those are the factors forcing companies to embed innovation in their DNA.
