[E100 Alert] - International Innovation
Fundamentals - You are invited...
With this E100 Alert, I am pleased to announce that Joyce Wycoff has recently been added as an E100 and is now featured on the Global Knowledge Leadership Map.
Many of you are already familiar with Joyce's work on the Innovation DNA, the ThinkSmart Monday e-mails and Convergence conferences. You may not know that she was the person who made available to us the first conferencing for the E100 that has now migrated to CoLayer!
Recently she launched an exciting collaboration project to define the Innovation Fundamentals; and you - as E100 - have been invited to participate.
Innovation is at interesting stage. If you are interested in the entire spectrum of innovation, we'd like to invite you to participate in a collaborative project to capture the fundamental essence of innovation.
There are a lot of great innovation practices beginning to be
documented and discussed. But what are the "fundamentals of
innovation?" What things, if not done at all or not done well,
could actually cause the failure of your innovation efforts?
We would like to invite you to participate in this unique, online collaboration which will use very simple tools such as collaborative blogs, wikis, and email to collect our thoughts and create a report which can be shared broadly. The online work will be supplemented by three teleconferences.
You can see the very beginning of the collaborative blog at http://thinksmart.typepad.com/innovation_2004/.
Innovation practitioners from corporations, non-profits and
governmental units as well as consultants and academics will be taking
part in this collaborative effort. This deliberately diverse
gathering is international in scope and represents many different
organizational disciplines such as quality, the learning organization,
knowledge management and others.
You can already see the panel of Advisors:
And the Sponsoring Organizations:
If you have any questions, please contact Joyce Wycoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 760-872-3628. The report will be presented at Innovation Convergence 2004, September 26-29, 2004 in Minneapolis. Participants will receive their copy of the report by September 25.
