SAP's curated and presented some nice think pieces here on the importance and relevance of innovation now.


Innovation isn't everything, but it's a darn fine place to begin. As the economy hyperaccelerates and differentiation becomes critical, the emphasis you place on innovation, not just in terms of investment but in terms of how embedded innovation is into your business, brand and marketing strategy, defines and sharpens your edge. 


Some nice thoughts here to inspire you, provoke you and help you provoke others.

This is not a "free" business model generator, it is a software program built on the "free information" business model.  


I looked through this and there is some solid information even if you don't purchase this software.  The 78 page info graphic style explanation does an excellent job of talking about offering "free" and monetizing a portion of your information.  


Play around with it and let me know what you think.

Getting it together! Lets make some dough!

Paul P Roberts's curator insight, October 11, 2013 3:44 PM

As someone that does a lot of business planning this tool looks very interesting. It's simple design output also makes me wonder whether this could be adapted in the market research market, a one page insight delivery might inspire more detailed and focussed work.

Moreover, most of these apps and tools are free to use. Even for the ones that you have to pay for them, it's actually not expensive and really worth what are you paying for. 

Technology is really developing more and more and it's really important to keep up with thees developments and changes because they are helping us managing our life and makes our life easier.
