How America’s Patent Laws have Changed

How America’s Patent Laws have Changed | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Entrepreneurs are eager to understand the implications of the America Invents Act, which was signed into law by President Obama on September 16, 2011. The new rules substantially change America’s patent system, but many provisions will not take effect for a year or more. The Act, which achieved bipartisan support in Congress, was signed into law with broad language and a stipulation that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) create rules to fill in the gaps.

Staying Human-Centered in a Technology-Focused World

Staying Human-Centered in a Technology-Focused World | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When Procter & Gamble was looking for ways to innovate and grow its business in the late 1990s, it found the answers not in technology but in human behavior. P&G started by watching how everyday people cleaned their floors, and noticed that a lot of effort was put into cleaning the mop itself, an unwieldy and often messy contraption. The solution? A simpler tool than the original—one that solved an everyday problem in a different way: the Swiffer.

There’s a Gender Gap in Internet Usage. Closing It Would Open Up Opportunities for Everyone

There’s a Gender Gap in Internet Usage. Closing It Would Open Up Opportunities for Everyone | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
We have all heard about a gap when it comes to participation of women in the tech industry. Facebook, Google, and Apple have 17%, 19% and 23% women in their technology staffs, respectively. Multiple surveys, such as the “The Elephant in the Valley,” have documented systematic discrimination against women. And there’s a continuous barrage of news stories regarding the challenges that women face across a raft of iconic Silicon Valley firms. No more than a quarter of U.S. computing and mathematical jobs are held by women, consistent with the data that around 26% of the STEM workforce in developed countries is female. In developing countries, those differences are even greater.

Crazy Idea Or Game-Changing Breakthrough? Put It To The Test

While the spirit of experimentation is right, poor test-and-learn execution has been known to hobble a company’s fortunes for years to come.

Communication and repetition are vital for innovation

I was working out this morning before work and as usual, watching the breaking news.  At 7am there are a range of news choices, and strangely each network seems to have the exact same advertisements on during the breaks.  As I was working out I realized that I knew the side effects of several medications that I don't need and don't take.

Innovation is widely perceived as one of the most powerful tools for business survival and growth in a fast-changing world, so it makes sense that everyone, no matter what industry or field, is eager to jump on the innovation bandwagon. Most companies, however, still struggle to jump start innovative thinking because they overlook the small details embedded within an organization's culture: the everyday, ritualistic occurrences that subliminally signal to employees that they shouldn't spend time exploring a new idea, let alone bring it up to the rest of their team.
