Welcome to Innovate Cincinnati! A Website dedicated to promote Innovation & Entrepreneurship in our city in every area that we're touching: Education, Government, Community, University Research, Business, Economic Development.

 

A culture of innovation provides the foundation so that people can turn ideas into results and improve communities. Innovation can be found in all industries, fields, locations and communities - not just in business, technology, engineering or the physical sciences. According to the pioneering work of Nobel Prize winner Robert Solow, technological innovation is the ultimate source of productivity and growth. It's the only proven way for economies to consistently get ahead - especially innovation born by start-up companies

Cincinnati needs "Game changing"

Posted by admin on 2011/1/20 15:10:00 (1596 reads)

Cincinnati  needs to reinvent itself if we want to stay competitive in the new global economy. We are not only competing with other US cities, but also with cities around the world.

The recent report Our Region By The Numbers should be a clear wake-up call for the region and we need to do something about it very soon! 

The good news is that we have innovation experts locally, who showed how it should be done: 

As described on Amazon:

 

Blessings to Procter & Gamble—or, more exactly, its chairman and CEO, A. G. Lafley. Together with Charan, author of Know-How (2007) (and the most probable successor to management guru Peter F. Drucker), he defines, describes, draws examples of, and delineates how innovation became a part of not only the behemoth consumer-packaged-goods company but also part of Lego and Nokia (among others). Lafley is remarkably candid; the story of his “surprise” ascent to CEO-dom in 2000, taking over from Durk Jager, is the story of transformation. A number of commandments accompanied the company’s innovationcentric strategy: the consumer is boss, inside and outside cocreation is encouraged, the innovation process is tangible (and must be followed), and risks can be managed. Most important is his emphasis on human interaction as the key; even better, the last section focuses exclusively on developing a culture of innovation, from promoting the rules of brainstorming to the desired attributes for employees and leaders: courageous, connected and collaborative, curious, open. Sidebars are worthy of posting on a bulletin board; in fact, this is a sustainable reference on innovation that will be hard to beat. --Barbara Jacobs


It would be nice if our city leaders could leverage this know-how from these experts!
