Three Steps To Developing An Innovative Instinct -- And The Questions To Ask Yourself To Get There | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Innovation requires an openness to trying something new. But what if you grow up in a world where you are educated to get the best exam score rather than to think broadly about a problem and debate possible solutions?

How do you learn to innovate if you are risk averse, and you can’t get the input you need to know how you are really doing?

7 key trends all sustainability execs should watch

7 key trends all sustainability execs should watch | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
It is 2018, and it arguably never has been a more difficult, unpredictable, yet exciting time to run an international business.

No doubt overcoming the Great Depression ahead of the outbreak of World War II in the 1930s was more than a little trying, of course. But fast forward 80 to 90 years and the global economy is an ever more complex and fast-evolving place, exposed to a widening variety of risks and shocks — a fact only underlined by last week's stock market volatility.

Operational Fragmentation Between Entities And Cross-Industry Integration

Operational Fragmentation Between Entities And Cross-Industry Integration | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Enterprises in a variety of industries confront a longstanding challenge of integrating disparate and discrete functional and operational silos. Finance departments struggle to share data with sales and marketing. Processes related to order fulfillment don’t properly link up with inventory systems. The issue is particularly onerous for businesses seeking to leverage data analytics to enhance the customer experience. How, for example, can a restaurant easily access a diner’s past orders to offer special menu items?

Innovation Isn't About What You Know, But What You Don't

Innovation Isn't About What You Know, But What You Don't | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When Steve Jobs first came up with the idea for the iPod, it wasn't actually a machine he had in mind, but "a thousand songs in my pocket." It was, at the time, an impossible idea, because hard drives of that capacity and size just didn't exist. In fairly short order though, the technology caught up to the vision.

Are the Most Innovative Companies Just the Ones With the Most Data?

Are the Most Innovative Companies Just the Ones With the Most Data? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Do you still use Yahoo? Do you still remember MySpace? Compaq? Kodak? The cases of startups with superior ideas dethroning well-established incumbents are legion. This is the beauty of “creative destruction” – the term coined by innovation prophet Joseph Schumpeter almost a century ago. Incumbents have to keep innovating, lest they be overtaken by a new, more creative competitor. Arguably, at least in sectors shaped by technical change, entrepreneurial innovation has kept markets competitive far better than antitrust legislation ever could. For decades, creative destruction ensured competitive markets and a constant stream of new innovation. But what if that is no longer the case?
