Here is my round up of all the things I have been reading this week, as usual, there is no particular order, just things that have caught my eye.
- One of the questions we are always asked is regarding the tax implications of running an ideas programme within the United Kingdom. This article does a pretty good job of explaining it and it comes from a tax accountant.
- Found a great blog this week called The Employable. A great source of articles for the person looking for a job. Well worth a visit and spend some time there.
- Another blog that has recently linked into us vgalovski I have spent a few hours on this blog in the past week and the content is very good. Take a look for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
- One of the delegates from our last networking session has done their own blog post about the event and asking the question – Can Social Media Enhance an Ideas Scheme – Again, do take a look and see what you think.
- Most people have heard of The Six Hats, here Paul Sloane explains the Disney method of thinking. A very good piece that I will certainly be trying very soon.
- Shifting Paradigms – Refreezing for Innovation. Looks at how to embed a culture of innovation within the middle of your organisation. A fascinating post that had my brain cells buzzing!
- Pollinators: The New Breed of Innovators This article was recently published in Forbes Magazine. Have a read and ask yourself, am I a Pollinator?
- Top 8 Reasons I can’t get anyone to embrace innovation at my organisation! One of the best articles I have read this week and strikes a chord with me personally as it reminds me of an organisation where I worked in the past. The key to success is that persistence will always win at the end of the day!
- A recognition that innovation is a complex adaptive system. Another well thought out blog that I really like. I would encourage you all to subscribe to it today. This post really had me thinking about innovation and what we at ideasUK talk about on a daily basis. Take a look and tell me what you think.
- As ever, my number 10 is always a little light hearted and this week is no different, Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you The Cat Scan. The only way I can describe this site is that it is what the internet has been waiting for.
Hope you enjoy my links this week, if there is something you think I should read or a site you have come across you think I should include, please drop me a line or add them below.
