Brainstorming Rules: What TO DO and What NOT TO DO..

These two short videos are priceless! They were created by students at the Stanford Design Institute. The first oneshows how NOT to brainstorm and the second one shows HOW to do it effectively. They picked a fanciful problem to solve - saving your chewing gum when you go to class.

The worst case example happens all the time. In fact, I was at a meeting last week with people with whom I don't normally work, and we were "brainstorming" about a new program. One person made a suggestion, and someone else literally responded with, "Go shoot yourself." For anyone who has spent any time polishing their brainstorming skills, they know that the FIRST rule is to defer judgment. This was a great, real life example of how NOT to do it.

Here is a video summary of what NOT to do:

Here is a video summary of what TO DO:

- Defer judgment - Capture all the ideas - Encourage wild ideas - One conversation at a time - Build on other people's ideas - Be visual - use wo…

Different types of entrepreneurship

The entrepreneur engages in an innovative activity that results in novel methods, processes and products.Emphasizes the founding and management of a business that builds upon and improves an existing product or service.The imitative venture foundation by an trepreneur who is involved in the rapid dissemination of an innovative idea or process. This person or group finds a novel innovation and transfers it to another environment, region or country.Rent-seeking or profit-seeking... focuses on the use of regulation standards, or laws to appropriate some of the value of a monopoly that is generated somewhere in the economy.

Creative Destruction & Process Renewal

Dynamic capitalism is the process of wealth creation characterized by the dynamics of new, creative firms forming and growing and old, large firms declining and failing. In this model, it is disequilibrium - the disruption of existing markets by new entries - that makes capitalism lead to wealth creation (Kirchhoff, 1994)

Creative Destruction incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, destroying the old structure and creating a new one.

- The profit of the new firms is the key to economic growth and progress. By introducing a new and valuable product, the innovator obtains temporary monopoly power until rivals figure out how to mimic the innovation.

The forces of entrepreneurship, competition, and globalization have encouraged new technologies and business methods that raise efficiency and efficacy. The business system works to drive out inefficiency and forces business process renewal.

How it understands and uses its total resources, activities, and relationships

First, a firm is clear about its mission and purpose. Second, the firm must know and understand its customers, suppliers, and competitors. Third, a firm's intellectual capital is understood, renewed, and enhanced as feasible. Finally, the firm must understand its environment or context, which is set by society, the market, and the technology available to it.

The firm as transforming available inpıts into desired outputs

Entrepreneurial Capital = entrepreneurial competence x entrepreneurial commitment

Intellectual Capital = can be thought of as the sum of knowledge assets of an organization. This knowledge is embodied in the talent, know-how and skills of the members of an organization.

3 Elements of the intellectual capital (IC) of an organization

Human capital (HC): The skills, capabilities, and knowledge of the firm's people
Organizational Capital (OC): The patents, technologies, processes, databases, and networks
Social Capital (SC): The quality of the relationships with customers, suppliers, and partners.

IC = HC + OC + SC

Entrepreneurs thrive in response to challenges and look for unconventional solutions. They apply creativity, create visions, build stories that explain their visions, and then act to be part of the solution. They forge new paths and risk failure but persistently seek success. Entrepreneurs distinguish themselves through their ability to accumulate and manage knowledge, as well as their ability to mobilize resources to achieve a specified business or social goal.

Entrepreneurship - Think Different

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

(IBM tarafından data analytic, POS çözümleri ile bağlantılar ön görüyorum. Forester Reseach çalışanlarından birisi blog’unda Tim Cook’un perakende de kasayı kaldırmak istediğini bu konuda araştırmalar yaptığını belirtmişti.)

Bence, kurumsal tarafta hali hazırda verilen 2g’ye bağlı operatör yetenekleri yerini teknoloji yaygınlaştıkça  dijital hizmet halkalarıyla değiştirecek… Bu bağlamda, operatörlük yeteneği de zorunlu değişime uğrayacak…

Key Characteristics of Charismatic Leader: Nelson Mandela, Invictus Movie Scene

Model Leader Behavior: Invictus film scene
Nelson Mandela invites the rugby team captain Mr. François Pinard. At 0.14, Mr. Mandela thanks captain for his visit and then firstly, he asked the captains ankle injury. Although they never met before, Mandela gives close attention to his guest. Then, at 0.46 Mandela’s maid entered the room for tea servce. As you see, Mandela gives great interest all the persons around him. He introduced Mrs. Britz to Mr. Pinard, then gives thank for the service. We can give these as examples of key characteristics of charismatic leader: the sensivity to follower needs.
Then, Mandela changes the subject, he was trying to create link with Mr. Pinard. While he poured teas, he said that, the English culture bringt South-Africa many beautiful things such as rugby, but the tea is the best thing that they bringt from the culture. I think this shows the characteristics of unconventional behavior and vision artuculation.
Moreover, at 1.42 he started the conversation wi…
