Are You Innovation Ready?

Collaborative innovation will be key for success in the future. Corporate leaders realise that they need to work collaboratively with their business partners, customers and governments to innovate successfully for the future. Innovation ecosystems that span across public and private sectors and extend to include citizens and societies have to be formed. Collaborative innovation is the name of the game for future success.

In one of the most comprehensive studies ever conducted on collaborative innovation, eLab@INSEAD, in collaboration with Logica, surveyed two hundred CxO level business leaders from blue-chip organisations from both the public and private sectors across the world, about their views on collaborative innovation. The research (available on http://elab.insead.edu) shows that, although they claim to grant high priority to collaborative innovation, most companies are handicapped by low levels of innovation readiness.

Los programas se proponen ayudar a abrir puertas a mujers cuyas circunstancias financieras y prácticas normalmente les impedirían recibir una educación comercial tradicional.


En los países latinoamericanos, por ejemplo, donde hay muchos trabajadores emigrantes, las mujeres suelen quedarse en su lugar de origen cuidando a sus familias y trabajando como peluqueras, artesanas, cocineras o niñeras.

Esas trabajadoras casi siempre forman parte de la economía informal, vendiendo lo que hacen en mercados informales. Para ayudarlas a pasar a integrar la economía formal, INSEAD participó del recientemente creado “programa de las 10.000 mujeres”.
