Tomorrow’s world: A guide to the next 150 years | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it

Over the next 150 years, our society will undoubtedly see an array of  technological advancements take shape. But the impacts that these technologies are capable of creating socially, politically, culturally and ethically will be down to us: will human rights, democracies, standards of living; levels of education and the state of the environment be improved for all?

Kodak: why the moment has passed

Kodak: why the moment has passed | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it

Just as the music industry was rocked by the world of downloads after the launch of the CD, Kodak fell foul of new technology. 


The news that Kodak has filed for Chapter 11 is rather like hearing about the death of a much-loved elderly relative. You've known for ages it was going to happen, but it's still a shock when it finally does.


Kodak has teetered on the brink of collapse for the best part of a decade. Despite the continuous optimism of the CEO, Antonio Perez, the numbers simply never stacked up.


Its new digital businesses kept growing, but didn't make any money. The old film business remained profitable, but shrank: shifting from consumers to professionals to diehards.

Science fiction writers hired by Intel to help drive their future technology

Science fiction writers hired by Intel to help drive their future technology | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it
It sure seems some days that what was once science fiction is increasingly becoming today’s technology. From Arthur C. Clarke’s satellite to electronic circuits that can be embedded in our skin science fiction seems more prescient than ever.


“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.” [John M. Richardson, Jr.]


Being a futurist @ Intel must be the best job ever!

In Technology Wars, Using the Patent as a Sword

In Technology Wars, Using the Patent as a Sword | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it
Alongside the impressive technology advances of the last two decades, many see a destructive use of software patents corrupting the marketplace for ideas.


When Apple announced last year that all iPhones would come with a voice-activated assistant named Siri, capable of answering spoken questions, Michael Phillips’s heart sank.


For three decades, Mr. Phillips had focused on writing software to allow computers to understand human speech. In 2006, he had co-founded a voice recognition company, and eventually executives at Apple, Google and elsewhere proposed partnerships. Mr. Phillips’s technology was even integrated into Siri itself before the digital assistant was absorbed into the iPhone.


When the first lawsuit went to trial last year, Mr. Phillips won. In the companies’ only courtroom face-off, a jury ruled that Mr. Phillips had not infringed on a broad voice recognition patent owned by Mr. Ricci’s company.


But it was too late. The suit had cost $3 million, and the financial damage was done. In December, Mr. Phillips agreed to sell his company to Mr. Ricci. “We were on the brink of changing the world before we got stuck in this legal muck,” Mr. Phillips said.

Marc Giget: «Il n’y a crise que s’il y a innovation»

Le fondateur de l’Institut européen de stratégies créatives explique que la sortie du marasme économique est liée au progrès humain.
Joanna Emery's insight:

We hear often about why an economic crisis could be the right time for companies to engage in 'disruptive innovation', enabling them to propel themselves out of recession. But recent work by Marc Gidget suggests that innovation is actually directly linked to causing economic crisis. He proposes that crises come about during important phases of innovation.

Industry: In search of inspiration. China's industrial creativity.

Industry: In search of inspiration. China's industrial creativity. | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it
Gao Jifan sits at his desk in front of a blown-up panorama of the Milky Way – a suitably arresting backdrop for a man trying to reach new frontiers.

China overtook the US as the world’s biggest goods producer by output last year, reclaiming the global supremacy it lost in the 19th century. But it still has to dispel the image of being a low-cost workshop where quality is inferior and the best ideas are copied – or stolen – from the west.

In his headquarters, abutting Trina’s huge factory of 14,000 employees, Mr Gao is relentlessly upbeat about China’s industrial creativity. He points to Trina’s new generation of “Honey” solar cells, which have produced record-breaking efficiency levels, as being examples of homegrown Chinese innovation.

Difference between successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs? Testing business models & customer development

Difference between successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs? Testing business models & customer development | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it

ALEXANDER OSTERWALDER: Are yoThe ability to build great products is of course a prerequisite for building a successful company. Yet, better business models almost always out-compete better products and technologies. A great business model can be the difference between an insanely profitable and a merely surviving business for exactly the same product or technology. Today we know how to design great business models.

C’est une longue prise de conscience. Depuis l’apparition de l’information sur Internet, chacun a tâtonné dans son coin, a essayé de trouver le meilleur compromis entre ouvrir les portes et faire payer l’accès.


Presque deux décénies plus tard, pour les sixièmes Assises du journalisme, qui se tenaient la semaine dernière à Poitiers, les professionnels de la presse en ligne ont fait leur mea culpa : faire du gratuit a été une erreur.

Creating Shared Value - Porter & Kramer

Creating Shared Value - Porter & Kramer | Innovation and Management | Scoop.it

A growing number of companies known for their hard-nosed approach to business—such as GE, Google, IBM, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, Unilever, and Wal-Mart—have already embarked on important efforts to create shared value by reconceiving the intersection between society and corporate performance.


Yet our recognition of the transformative power of shared value is still in its genesis. Realizing it will require leaders and managers to develop new skills and knowledge—such as a far deeper appreciation of societal needs, a greater understanding of the true bases of company productivity, and the ability to collaborate across profit/nonprofit boundaries. And government must learn how to regulate in ways that enable shared value rather than work against it.
