Which Part of Your Business Model is Creating Value? By Tim Kastelle
Andrew Keen posted a fascinating interview with Jeff Jarvis yesterday. All of the interview clips are worth watching – they touch on a number of interesting topics, including the relative benefits of publicness and privacy, the future of news and how to best develop new business models for journalism, why google struggles with social applications, and the changing nature of internet-based business models. The latter is included in this clip:
Strategy starts with identifying changes by Jorge Barba
Pay attention to this McKinsey Quarterly interview of Richard Rumelt, professor of strategy at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management:
Smartfailing – a new concept for learning through failure by Stefan Lindegaard

Being Busy Makes Us Happier, but Our Instinct Is to Do Nothing by Robert I. Sutton, PhD
This research explains nearly 100% of my emotions, actions, and predilections! And it is very consistent with what every parent knows: When the kids are complaining about being bored or are sitting around being grumpy, get them to do SOMETHING no matter how trivial or inane it may seem. This may apply to bosses too, but I have to think about it.
Better Ideas Faster by David Sherwin
I had a chance to attend HOW Design Conference in Denver, Colorado, where over 2,500 designers gathered to be inspired by their peers, play with new tools and techniques, and network in some unusual ways—such as Neenah Paper’s closing party, where everyone wore white. (Have you ever seen a room with a thousand people all wearing white?) My contribution to the event was a session on how graphic designers can brainstorm more effectively.
How Can We Fix the Problems of Design Thinking? In Design Sojourn
This article has actually been sitting as a draft for a few months now. I knew I wanted to write a follow up to the popular (49 comments at the time of writing!)

Every Business Startup is a Series of Unexpected Events – Will You Be Ready? by: K. MacKillop
No matter how seasoned an entrepreneur, every business startup has its share of surprises. Whether the entire business idea changes radically during the early stages or an unconsidered market segment emerges as the top consumers, expect the unexpected. How a business owner deals with surprises is a major factor that determines who finds great success and who muddles through.
Design Thinking: A Solution to Fracture-Critical Systems by DMI
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The banking collapse. The foreclosure crisis. Tom Fisher, Dean, College of Design at the University of Minnesota, views each of these disasters as a “fracture-critical system,” and he sees design thinking as a potential solution.

Enjoy it! Delivering happiness: Not business as usual by Jorge Barba A few days ago I wrote about how Zappos has broken the rule that a business exists purely to make profits. They’ve designed their business model around the concept of ‘happiness’ and have made it clear that the customer IS their business. The […]
Delivering happiness: Not business as usual by Jorge Barba
A few days ago I wrote about how Zappos has broken the rule that a business exists purely to make profits. They’ve designed their business model around the concept of ‘happiness’ and have made it clear that the customer IS their business. The is idea is driven that by making their employees happy it further drives customer happiness. It’s common sense but we, as consumers, can’t really say that other businesses look after our well being.

Innovating Meaning by Tim Kastelle
Often when we someone asks us to describe a product or a service, we tell them about features. What does it do? How does it do it?
This is a mistake. Products and services are not about features – they are about meaning, and they are about getting jobs done.
A Great Boss is Confident, But Not Really Sure by Robert I. Sutton via Ralph Ohr
Recently, I posted a list of 12 Things Good Bosses Believe. Now I’m following up by delving into each one of them. This post is about the sixth belief: “I strive to be confident enough to convince people that I am in charge, but humble enough to realize that I am often going to be wrong.”
Some 1.2 billion people worldwide are drinking unsafe water. Although many organizations purify water for entire communities in the developing world, women and children often walk long distances to transport it — and it often becomes contaminated during the trip. From retrieval to consumption, water’s journey is complex and provides ample opportunities for improvement. Acumen Fund and IDEO, with backing from the Gates Foundation, joined forces to tackle the issues of water transport and storage.
