Incorporating Metrics For Innovation | Virtual Cluster Initiative | Scoop.it

An excellent way to assess competition for a company in any industry is via competitive benchmarking metrics. These dimensions will definitely be able to determine the functionality of a business in contrast to its opponents as well as the business standard. By incorporating competitive metrics for innovation benchmarking could give a business a snapshot to urgent activities for improvement as well as advancement of its procedures and products.

WEBINAR RECORDING: How to Start a Seed Library

WEBINAR RECORDING: How to Start a Seed Library | Virtual Cluster Initiative | Scoop.it

At a seed library, patrons can check out seeds for free. They then grow the fruits and vegetables, harvest the new seeds, and "return" those seeds so the library can lend them out to others. In April 2013, New Dream hosted a webinar about how to start a seed lending program at your public library. Topics include funding models, obtaining starter seeds, patron orientation, and more. The webinar features speakers from seed libraries around the country.

Why pure innovation does not change the world

Why pure innovation does not change the world | Virtual Cluster Initiative | Scoop.it

 I think there are and there must be a lot of innovators in the world. Just thinking about all the scientists at the universities, the huge number of promotions and habilitations. Or the frequent claims and visions of huge companies which announce how important they rate innovation.
