Purposeful Innovation

Recommended reading for the week …

A semi-recurring feature – items that I think are worth your time. Sourced from a variety of places around the ‘net – I’ll try to give credit for the recommendations where it is due. Some of these are older, some quite recent – I’ve got a backlog of interesting stuff to share. As always – your comments, observations, and other recommendations are always welcome!

  • What the Companies That Predict the Future Do Differently: To know more about potential future actions and outcomes and their probability — and to act on that knowledge — organizations are engaging in new kinds of relationships.
  • Designers are engineers: A discussion of the changing role of design and designers in emerging technology (I especially like the part about how Design manages Complexity).

  • Defining a High Performance Team: It’s not just about Structure: By consciously outlining and sharing all of the what, how’s and why’s with all team members, greater alignment of mindsets for correct focus & decision making can be created within your team.
  • Your Agile Project Needs a Budget, Not an Estimate: “How much is this ballpark going to cost?” is a fair question. Do I need to buy a shovel so I can build a sandlot? Or do I need to raise $100 million dollars to build Yankee Stadium? Stakeholders have decisions to make and deserve to have an idea of what their investment is going to cost and if it’s worth pursing.
