Come join the online discussion on the fundamental principles for innovation management. The debate is sparked by an article by Heinz Essman, contributing editor on InnovationManagement from South Africa.
In his article, Heinz Essman, contributing editor from South Africa, introduces a set of proposed fundamental principles for innovation. It is indeed a proposal and we are very interested in hearing your views on this. Welcome to read and then visit the InnovationManagementForum.com to share your views and discuss with like-minded.
Abstract from the article
The process of realising benefits from creativity, the innovation process, can be complex. Numerous process frameworks are available to assist companies with delivering consistent innovation. These frameworks, however, always require significant modification for specific instances. So how does one go about making changes without spoiling the essence of the process? Or, how does one go about developing an innovation model from the ground up? Guidance from a set of fundamental principles is the answer.
Let your opinion be heard.

Interesting article. Here an abstract from the study.
IT-enabled online collaboration, particularly with online communities, is increasingly important for corporate reputation and brand management, according to a new Economist Intelligence Unit study.
The Verizon-sponsored study, “Dangerous liaisons: How businesses are learning to work with their new stakeholders,” surveyed senior executives worldwide on their views of how an emerging group of non-traditional stakeholders is impacting corporate reputation.
According to the study, 78% of the respondents say that interaction with special-interest groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or citizen groups is important to their business, while 33% say that online communities will be their most important category of “non-traditional stakeholder” in five years.

Det er blevet mere almindeligt at have en blog. Privat personer, virksomheder og organisationer bruger i stigende grad blogs som kommunikationskanal, men det er fortsat et usikkert territorium at bevæge sig ind på. De seneste skandaler og fyringer af kendte blogger, senest Politiken, viser hvor usikre spillereglerne er på området.
Jeg faldt over følgende artikelserie fra Freelanceswitch, som beskriver otte juridiske områder som en blogger skal overveje i sin færd udi det ukendte.

Karin Wall, chief editor of InnovationManagement, has spoken to Dr Eva Diedrichs, who is the responsible project manager for IMP³rove, the European Commission’s major project on innovation management. IMP³rove stands for IMProving Innovation Management Perfromance with sustainable IMPact.
The interview has resulted in a very interesting perspective on how to improve conditions for SMEs in Europe.
Abstract from the interview:
It’s a well known fact that Europe’s competitive potential is dependent on the capacity to be truly innovative and creative in launching new successful products and services. This can be a daunting challenge for many organizations, not the least for small and medium sized enterprises that often lack proficiency in innovation management. IMP³rove is an approach developed especially to meet the needs of SMEs to help them develop innovation management performance with sustainable impact.
