Google X' Lessons for Failure

Google X' Lessons for Failure | Innovation | Scoop.it
Expectations are a big issue in this scenario of innovation. If senior leaders at Google expect a high output from Google X they would be sadly disappointed. But they explicitly reward failure.
Christian Bartosik's insight:

You must reward people for failing.  If not, they won’t take risks and make breakthroughs.  If you don’t reward failure, people will hang on to a doomed idea for fear of the consequences.  That wastes time and saps an organisation’s spirit.

"Digitale Transformation ist nichts für Angsthasen" (Torsten Toeller/FRESSNAPF am 4Gamechangers Festival)

Digitale Transformation ist nichts für Angsthasen, sagt Torsten Toeller, Gründer und Eigentümer @Fressnapf_at, am 4Gamechangers Festival.

 

"Um in Zukunft erfolgreich zu sein müssen wir die Kundenbedürfnisse in den Mittelpunkt stellen.
Wenn relevante, wiederkehrende Kundenprobleme nachhaltig gelöst werden können, kann man - selbst wenn man noch keinen Business Case hat - Geldverdienen nicht verhindern.

 

Für diese Unternehmensstrategie braucht es keine Berater. Es gibt überall unternehmerisch denkende Mitarbeiter!

 

Investiert werden jährlich zwischen 20-40 Millionen ohne zu wissen, was es letztlich kosten wird, denn wir glauben, dass sich das in Erfolg und letztlich Gewinn niederschlagen wird.

 

Digitale Transformation ist nichts für Angsthasen! Hier sind echte Unternehmer gefragt."

In my forthcoming book, Seeing Around Corners (now available for pre-order wherever you buy books), one of the major themes is that a major blind spot for organizations is that they tend to see the world through the lens of their existing industry.

The two questions companies should ask to stay relevant - A business professor's advice on how to avoid being disrupted | Innovation | Scoop.it
At the Brightline Initiative’s Strategy@Work conference in New York last week, Rita McGrath, a professor of at Columbia Business School and a strategy consultant to CEOs, shared her perspective on what large companies should do to avoid such disruption. A takeaway from her research, she said, is that leaders should always be asking two questions:

Who is listening to that one person in your company that sees change coming before everyone else?
What talents or resources exist in your already powerful firm that could be leveraged, and that would allow the company to stay relevant?
