Top 10 innovation and ideas management internet links – weekly round-up 2nd September

Wow, it’s already September, where has the year gone? Here in Wales, we’re beginning to feel a twinge of Autumn in the air, however, that means it’s nearing D-Day for our conference and we’re getting rather excited about it, menus confirmed, rooms booked and looking forward to meeting the delegates. In the meantime, here’s this week’s links:

  1. How to Tap Employee Ideas Fantastic piece about how and why to tap employee ideas, did you know how the post-it note was invented? Read the article and you will find out.
  2. Some tips and techniques on how to develop cost benefit analysis Not really ideas management related, but it always good to know.
  3. The benefits of self management I am not really a person for self-help articles, but this caught my eye and was a good read so I thought I would share.
  4. Told you we were getting excited about our conference: We’d like to remind everyone about our conference in November, it is a great event, and this year we celebrate our 25th Anniversary.
  5. It’s looking up if you are looking down It is always good to keep abreast of technology in the mobile phone market. Good concise overview of what’s coming next.
  6. The Creativity of Anger  Interesting and a little bit controversial in my opinion. Do good ideas come from angry and negative moods?
  7. Finding opportunities in Business Model Innovation Sometimes you read a news report that is so totally spot on, you have to read it twice to make sure you read correctly. I loved this piece and advise you to take a look.
  8. CEO as Chief Innovator Proves that innovation should be sponsored from the top level of management to avoid being seen as just another organisational initiative. Well worth a read!
  9. Five lessons to boost your innovation Practices Does what it says on the tin really, 5 tools to help you be more innovative within the organisation.
  10. And finally, just going to leave you with something that has been keeping me amused over the past few days. A friend introduced me to this game a few months ago and it is very addictive, perfect for a quiet Friday afternoon in the office, drop me a line to let me know your score.

Well that’s my top 10 for the week, hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a great weekend folks!
