Domino's would need to rapidly expand its technological know-how—and fast. To get there, the company increased its software and analytics staff, which now accounts for half of the 800 employees at the company's headquarters.

The most popular strategies companies use to save money also kill innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
ISO9000, outsourcing, and downsizing have three things in common. First, they became very popular management practices 10 to 15 years ago—and they still are. Second, when implemented correctly, they quite rapidly increase firm performance: ISO9000 helps identify the best way of running key processes and making them “best practices” throughout the firm, which swiftly increases productivity and reliability.

How to Use Data Science The Ten Types Of Innovation | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The first decade of this century was all about business intelligence as a competitive advantage.
