Your Employees Hold The Key To Innovation

Your Employees Hold The Key To Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation remains a key focus and stated priority for many organizations, and for good reason. The world is enamored with Uber, Airbnb, and other disruptive company success stories. For leadership, it creates both a desire to create their own equally disruptive offerings and a fear of becoming obsolete. But with disruption leading the conversations around innovation, have we lost sight of the value of continuous improvement? Research indicates that much of the time, it’s these small, incremental changes that yield much better results.

Following the UK's leave vote, Dublin was found to be the second most attractive financial center in Europe by a PwC survey – and although London still topped the poll, uncertainty over the terms of Britain's exit from Europe make the Irish challenger more appealing by the day.

30 Under 30 Europe: Reinventing Industry With Flying Cars And A Better Picture Hanger | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Sometimes the simplest inventions can be the most profound. That was certainly the experience for Jordan Daykin, who developed the basic concept for GripIt Fixings in his garden shed, after being frustrated at the inability of other available solutions to hang heavy objects from plasterboard walls.

Should Apple Pursue the Stale Automotive Industry?

Should Apple Pursue the Stale Automotive Industry? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Chris Lattner’s jump from Apple(AAPL) to Tesla is surprising. That’s like leaving NASA to go work for a company that makes horse saddles. As I had written yesterday, the whole self-driving car thing is wildly overblown. Autonomous vehicles and electric powertrains are lipstick on a very mature pig. Regardless of what Peter Thiel thinks, the real exciting things in tech in the future will be outgrowths of the smartphone market, because moving information, not pounds, is where the value is.

Intel believes 5G wireless could reach far beyond smartphones to smart things | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The Internet of Things is expected to grow quickly to tens of billions of connected devices, from smart refrigerators to smart showers to smart cruise ships.

But at some point, the wireless data networks won’t be able to handle all that traffic from the connected devices. That’s why tech companies want to upgrade to 5G wireless, which is a fifth-generation mobile network that can transmit data at gigabits per second, compared to the single-digit megabits per second that we get today on our smartphones.

Innovation in a Reinvented World

Innovation in a Reinvented World | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
“A passion for innovation is something that comes deep from within a person,” wrote innovative thinker and author Dee McCrorey in her book “Innovation in a Revinvented World“. “It isn’t something that can be faked or taught in a classroom using textbooks. Of course, you can teach someone to use the tools of successful innovators, but passion for innovation lies dormant until it is tapped, released or expands on its own.”

Turn Your Organization into an Idea Factory: Part I | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Up to 80 percent of an organization’s improvement potential could come from frontline employee ideas.

High performing employee idea management programs, on the other hand, have over 50 percent adoption, many ideas per employee, and make a significant contribution to the bottom line. Even more, it results in increased productivity and employee engagement.
