Innovation and Web 2.0 – A Compelling Relationship?

I had a very interesting and exciting week!  I was a speaker at an nGenera Senior Executive Summit, which drew about 60 top executives from mostly large companies – CEO’s, CIO’s, CFO’s, HR and shared service heads, and even a couple of Lawyers and Platform/Brand managers.  It was an auspicious group – both in terms […]

Design Thinking 2.0: How Web 2.0 Might Foster and Enable an Innovation Revolution

About 3 years ago I first become aware of what can best be called a ‘movement’ dedicated to “Design Thinking,” when the term started showing up in some of my favorite blogs (e.g., Idris Mootee’s Innovation Playground).  The concepts became clearer and more compelling to me in June, 2008 when the Harvard Business Review published […]

Great Video on Social Media

IT's Top 10 Interests – Why the Perennial Oldies?
