Harvard Business Review September 2009--Final Comments
This the FINAL of several postings this week regarding the September 2009 issue of the Harvard Business Review, which I highly recommend you purchase for your executives.
Articles worth reading in this issue:
Inside Cisco’s Search for the Next Big Idea: Read about the I-Prize and how getting innovation by merely offering a reward on a Web site, doesn’t always work. It takes much more than “crowd-sourcing” to be effective.
Death by Information Overload: With the flood of e-mails companies and people need to take some actions. I like the sidebar list “10 Ways to Reduce E-mail Overload.” Helped me.
And a focus of articles on sustainability:
--Why Sustainability is Now the Key Driver of Innovation
--On the Horizon: Six Sources of Limitless Energy
--Using Gifts and Trees to Make Recyclers of Indian Consumers
--Creating Value in an Economic Crisis
