A Promising Future for Government-Driven Innovation

During the 20th century Governments and public agencies such as NASA played a major role in the innovation chain. The Internet itself was born through public programs, just as GPS and many other game-changing technologies.

But in recent years, questions arose over the efficiency of public efforts, challenged by smart, dynamic, powerful corporations such as Google, on the one hand, or bottom-up and open source models, on the other hand.

Are Governments out of the game?…

Sprayable Sleep: A Great Case of Entrepreneurship, Crowdfunding and Open Innovation

by Stefan Lindegaard
March 9, 20153/9/15 3 Comments

Great stories travel fast so I just read about a Silicon Valley startup that wants to sell better sleep through spray cans.

You might think this is a crazy idea, but as an indication that crazy ideas are sometimes the best ones just take a look at their IndieGoGo crowdfunding project site. They have already raised USD 325,000 and now the products are getting ready for launch this summer.

I like how this team of entrepreneurs takes a twist on a well-known and large problem (sleep issues) and combine this with crowdfunding to make it happen fast.…

R&D versus Innovation: What’s the Difference?

by Stefan Lindegaard
March 2, 20153/2/15 5 Comments

If you work in the R&D and innovation community – or communities – you have learned that R&D is not the same as innovation and vice versa. A good example is that companies that rely heavily on R&D such as pharma-company, Pfizer, has recently established innovation efforts that are deliberately different from their long-standing R&D efforts.

The key reason for this movement is the growing recognition that innovation, R&D, business development – or whatever we chose to call it – has to go beyond just products and technologies to be successful.…

The use of social media to promote and market the outcomes of innovation (products and services) is widespread. This is not the objective of this post as I want to focus on how people working with innovation can use social media in their efforts to create these products and services and to further develop their innovation capabilities.

I will cover Twitter in another post, but here we go with LinkedIn.

Some facts on LinkedIn:

I will be delivering a series of sessions on idea management and people management for better innovation together with Hype Innovation this spring.

Here you get some interesting insights on the topic, which I have compiled from blog posts from our sites.

Only 40% of the most innovative companies have a structured idea management program in place. This means that 60% of the biggest and best companies in the world are still using archaic methods to collect, organize, and manage ideas.…

Who Owns the Business Future of Healthcare and Medtech?

by Stefan Lindegaard
February 18, 20152/18/15 3 Comments

I had an interesting comment to my recent post on “An Example of (Slow) Open Innovation in Healthcare: GSK” that got me to think a bit on the business future of healthcare.

The comment from Andreas Silow went like this:

“Sorry to say, but symptomatic for pharma and healthcare industry. What happens now is that fastpaced ICT industry takes lead in the healthcare sector.”

This is an interesting observation and I agree that one of the dangers for the healthcare and medtech companies is that they can lose out to the ICT industry in some (maybe many) areas within their industry.…
