The 15 Enemies of Innovation | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

This is why established organizations are competing against their own human nature. Still, innovative organizations are not immune from falling into the complacency trap; they just have mechanisms in place to make it harder for their culture to fall into it.

A Visual Map for Strategic Risk and Innovation Terminology

However, these terms can easily be misunderstood or used out of context by those who are less familiar with their true meaning.

Product packaging the new hero in the marketing mix | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it
This means that product packaging found on the retail shelf is now also considered to be owned media. Product packaging must therefore be considered with as much importance as a company website or social presence. One could argue that product packaging is even more important because brand marketers can use their product packaging as a form of owned media. The packaging can now take up a centerfold position and become the hero in your marketing mix.

Managing your energy level is the key to being more innovative. "Let me just get through my to-do list and then I’ll get to the innovative thinking?" No way!... It’s hard to be more innovative at work when you are mentally and physically tapped out. At that point all you want is a bottle of wine and a couch. Your brain and your body are exhausted. It’s hard to be innovative when your whole being feels totally spent.

Balloon + Water = Instant flower vase!

Balloon + Water = Instant flower vase! | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it
If you’ve got a few spare balloons lying around from your NYE party, don’t let them sit in your closet until next year. Turn them into flower vases! Evan Gant’s rather nifty 3D printed support structure turns balloons into water-holding receptacles for your flowers. The balloons slip around the plastic columns and the instant you pour water in, the balloon swells up to resemble a bulbous vase shape. The water also ensures that the balloon’s base remains heavy and stays upright at all times, while the balloons themselves make rather alluring vases, especially since they come in such a wide variety of colors! Beautiful? Yes! Creative? Definitely!
