Geoffrey Canada: Our failing schools. Enough is enough! | Video on TED.com

Why, why, why does our education system look so similar to the way it did 50 years ago? Millions of students were failing then, as they are now -- and it’s because we’re clinging to a business model that clearly doesn’t work.

Designing the Corporate Center: How to Turn Strategy into Structure

Designing the Corporate Center: How to Turn Strategy into Structure | Innovation Nation | Scoop.it

If there is one overriding imperative for CEOs, it is to add value to the portfolio of businesses so that the whole is worth more than the sum of its parts. Such value creation requires steering by the corporate center—whether across businesses, across regions, or across functions. But whatever form that steering takes, the corporate center must not only choose its optimal parenting strategy but also design an organization that translates that strategy’s value-creation logic into practice. Many CEOs, however, struggle to translate strategic logic into action, and as a result, many corporate centers still fall short of their full value-creation potential.

 

The pressure to improve the center’s value creation is unrelenting and comes from all quarters. The capital market demands constant value creation and is quick to penalize corporate shares—and CEOs—if they fail to deliver. Analysts and shareholders pay close attention to valuation discounts. They are also quick to sound the alarm when overhead cost controls appear to be weakening. They compare the corporation against competitors that demonstrate excellence and ask why the corporation can’t keep up.

Learning to Manage Global Innovation Projects

Learning to Manage Global Innovation Projects | Innovation Nation | Scoop.it

For most of the twentieth century the story of innovation was largely one of co-location – innovation took place in one country, albeit at different locations, but where people shared the same context and culture. But this can no longer remain the case, as the knowledge and skills needed for innovation are becoming increasingly scattered around the world. Today, lead customers, technologies and capabilities are just as likely to be found in emerging markets as they are in Japan, the United States or Western Europe. To remain competitive, companies need to learn how to leverage this dispersed knowledge. In other words, innovation has to become a globally integrated activity.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, May 13, 2013 4:37 PM

As the trend toward knowledge dispersion grows and intensifies, the opportunities for co-located innovation will recede further in favour of a globally integrated approach. Being able to set up and manage global projects to replicate the benefits of co-location while leveraging dispersed knowledge will be paramount to building and maintaining competitive advantage. Readers will learn how to accomplish this goal.
