- Have a great idea? How to tell your boss – A good article from last year on CNN about ideas programmes. The really interesting thing though is at the bottom of the page when you look at the comments. How do you think we can overcome these negative responses in our innovation programme (Twitter – @CNN)
- Etiquette Guide for “Idea People” – One of the most popular questions we get asked is how can we improve the quality of the idea at the point of submission, although this article is a year old, the information it gives is still very relevant today. I would recommend any ideas manager to take two minutes of their day to read it! (Twitter – @leadchangegroup)

This is not unusual in my experience and this post explains why sometimes the IT function says NO to innovation. – (Twitter – @ovoinnovation)
