I would like to welcome readers to GGI’s innovation-centric blog. After twenty-five years as a corporation with a few hundred published articles and citations in trade press and media, and a recognized blog that is focused on overall R&D productivity, it seems appropriate to author a second blog more purely on the subject of innovation. In the coming months and years ahead, we hope to capture your intellectual curiosity and expand your creative horizons. Readers can expect to encounter thought leadership, thought provocation, facts and data, and occassionally some humor requiring very little thought.
In the near term, GGI’s founder, Brad Goldense will be penning most of the content. Over time, we expect to find ways to integrate some of the themes of our decade-long company newsletter, “GGI RapidNews,” into this forum; including book reviews, key trends, and essential news items for professionals in leading positions.
The initial purpose of GGI’s Tangible Innovation™ blog is to explore the rapidly evolving Innovation Body of Knowledge as it grows and matures.
Industry began demanding more innovation in the early 2000s. Practitioners and vendors alike rose to fill the demand. A myriad of new strategies, techniques, practices, tools, and software are now available and being tried by corporations. Some are working. Some are not. The jury is still out for most “new to” innovation enablers.
As well, numerous comparative studies exist that rank companies, states, and even countries on the subject of innovation and/or respect for intellectual property. Most likely, a company with high innovation goals would not wish to put a new facility in a state or country with a low innovation ranking that also rates low on intellectual property protection.
Hopefully this blog will help readers to better choose what might work better for them and/or their companies.
