Knowledge Management et cetera

Knowledge Management et cetera | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Knowledge management is not primarily about tools. It is primarily about mindset.
Somehow, “knowledge management” seems to be in the air. In the last days, I have discussed the topic three times, and usually the discussion started around the tools. “Microblogging is important” said one, “wikis are great” said somebody else. And then they moved on to wonder why, despite these great tools, helpful content didn’t emerge as quickly as desired.

Even Life-Saving Innovations Don’t Sell Themselves

Most businesses wouldn’t survive without driving demand for their products or services, either through marketing and advertising or through involving users so deeply in the design of the product that word of mouth spurs adoption. The same is true for social innovators. However, unlike many business leaders, it is easy for social innovators to overlook making an intentional effort to drive demand because the need for their innovation is so great. But even the most needed innovation does not sell itself.

The world’s first solar panel-paved road has opened in France | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
At this rate, just about every man-made surface there is could be covered in solar panels in the future.
Yesterday, Tourouvre-au-Perche, a small town in northern France, opened what is likely the first road paved in solar panels in the world, the Guardian reported. The road is roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) long, with one lane covered entirely in a patchwork of small solar cells that look rather like bathroom tiles, or a very dirty version of the road in the Wizard of Oz.

A Refresher on Discovery-Driven Planning

You’re working on a new venture and you know you’ve got to create a plan to execute it. So you look at past projects, gather and analyze relevant market data, make predictions about how much revenue you’ll be able to generate, decide what resources you’ll need, and set milestones to reach your targets. Right? Not so fast. That process might work for conventional or ongoing business lines, but new ventures, which are less predictable, require a different set of planning and control tools. That’s where the discovery-driven planning (DDP) process comes in.
