Open Innovation 2.0

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I recently read Twelve Principles for Open Innovation 2.0 , an article published last year in Nature by Martin Curley. Let me discuss each of these phases of innovation. Closed Innovation. Innovation was increasingly occurring in the marketplace, no just in their labs.

The Real Unemployment Innovation Challenge

John Hagel

Re-framing innovation. Many people have put their faith on innovation as a way to resolve the unemployment challenges that we face.  If we’re going to address the challenges ahead, we need to re-frame what we mean by innovation. Rather than focusing on product or service innovation, or even process and business model innovation, we need to focus on a form of innovation that isn’t yet on the agenda of our leaders – institutional innovation.

Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. The innovations build heavily on community and network approaches that I and others (Stephen Downes, David Wiley, Alan Levine, Jim Groom, Dave Cormier) have used in previous open courses. Videos, simulations, and graphics now contribute to formal MOOCs often costing several hundred thousand dollars to develop.

The Complex Nature of Cloud-based Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I find it helpful to look at cloud along two key dimensions: as a technology to improve IT productivity, and as a platform for enabling business innovation. Only one company in six viewed cloud as a way of fostering business innovation.

The Internet, Blockchain, and the Evolution of Foundational Innovations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The concept of disruptive technologies, as defined by Clayton Christensen 20 years ago, has become widely accepted as a way of thinking about innovation-driven growth, but it’s been often misunderstood and misapplied. Similarly, blockchain could dramatically reduce the cost of transactions.

Disruptive Innovations and Large Companies

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The subject of my seminar was Managing Technology-based Disruptive Innovations. Given my long career at IBM, as well as my more recent involvement with Citi, it is not surprising that I am particularly interested in entrepreneurship and innovation in large companies. Its lead article defined the term as: “somebody who offers an innovative solution to a (frequently unrecognised) problem. Startups are generally organized around one central innovation.

A Conversation on Innovation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Re: the negative side of innovation, there's a prettyconsistent assessment of innovation & technology, a pretty consistentstatement, by the youth in the occupy movement. If we go one step beyond innovation, we have actuallyreached a cusp in the west. Does the general population support innovation? We need to start thinking about 'innovation' and'Innovation'. Andas long as innovation is tech development, not social development, we willleave them behind.

Revolutionary, Ordinary Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

While the Square technology is very cool indeed, Davidoff’s key point is the ordinary nature of the innovation in question. The deal not only has the potential to change the way people pay for coffee and everything else, it also shows how small innovation applied to everyday tasks may be the next new thing for venture capital. Call it the rise of the ordinary innovators. Such major lab-based disruptive technologies are at one end of the innovation spectrum.

Cloud and “Game Changing” Business Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Innovation in Higher Education

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Tuition costs have risen much faster than the rate of inflation and keep going up, thus making it harder for them to serve the students most in need of their services. We need to look at higher education through the lens of disruptive innovation, argues a report published last February, - Disrupting College: How Disruptive Innovation Can Deliver Quality and Affordability to Postsecondary Education. Why are the costs of higher education so high?

Six characteristics supporting excellence in service delivery innovation

Ross Dawson

Last Friday, after delivering the breakfast keynote at CPA Congress in Brisbane (more on that in another post), I ran a half-day workshop at the partner offsite of a national accounting firm network on the theme of Disruption and Innovation in Professional Services. However in professional services probably the most important domain is service delivery, in which extraordinary possibilities for innovation have opened up in the network economy. Continuous innovation.

Big-Bang Disruptions: The Innovator’s Dilemma in the Digital Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It was later expanded into a book, Big Bang Theory: Strategy in the Age of Devastating Innovation published this past January. . The authors’ key premise is that innovation is once more undergoing drastic changes, driven by the exponential advances in digital technologies. They upend the conventional thinking on strategy, marketing and innovation, giving rise to a new set of business rules. They don’t create dilemmas for innovators; they trigger disasters.”.

Quip: innovation

Clark Quinn

Optimal execution is only the cost of entry; continual innovation is the necessary competitive differentiator. In a time when competitors can copy your innovation in a matter of months (or less), you can’t just plan, prepare, and execute optimally any longer. You now have to continually innovate in products and services, problem-solve faster, avoid repeating mistakes, and in general learn ( big ‘L’ learning ) faster than your competitors.

An Emerging Platform for Digital, Inclusive Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Internet became an incredible platform for innovation, enabling startups, large institutions, and everyone in between to quickly develop and bring to market many new digital products and services.

A Great Stagnation or a New Golden Age of Innovation?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

These new ventures continue to attract more and more financial capital from investors, which in turn helps improve the quality and lowers the cost of the new disruptive technology and leads to many new innovative applications. But inevitably, the investments in new companies and applications turns into unsustainable speculation, leading to a financial bubble which eventually crashes. The 1700s and 1800s yielded revolutionary innovations in industry, chemistry, and electricity.

Innovation at the State Dept.

David Weinberger

To begin with you are dealing with highly educated employees with a strong desire to keep their jobs… Likewise, the report cites a new willingness to experiment and fail, which is essential for innovation but anathema to State’s traditional culture. Implicit in many of the initiatives, there is new emphasis on Need to Share rather than Need to Know; the latter policy optimizes for security at the cost of intelligence.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Large Metropolitan Areas

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For several years now I have been thinking about the differences between various models of innovation and entrepreneurship.
