New Frontier: Star Trek Replicator is Reality?

Star Trek Replicator

I came upon this post on the Web:

Feeding the Final Frontier: 3-D Printers Could Make Astronaut Meals and couldn’t resist to notice the similarity to Star Trek Replicator.

Is this prelude to the famous Replicator ?

Amazing what people can achieve in technology, and that movie industry sets the goals.

What amazing invent do you think will be realized after Replicator?

Teleporting?

What is the difference between innovation management and change management?

innovation_change

Hello again,This post is directed to all those who are new in the innovation field that will definitely be confused with overlapping nature of these two broad terms – Innovation and Change.

To shed some light on the differences between them I will first deliver you their definitions, and then with some effort, main differences that will help you understand your standpoint.

DEFINITIONS:

 

INNOVATION MANAGEMENT is the discipline of managing innovations. It can be used to develop  product/service, process or business model innovation starting from creative idea to launch.

The focus of innovation management is to allow the organization to respond to an external or internal opportunity, and use its creative efforts to introduce new ideas, processes or products to reach market demands.

Common tools include brainstorming, virtual prototyping, product lifecycle management, idea management, TRIZ, stage-gate process, project management, product line planning and portfolio management. (source: wikipedia)

 

CHANGE MANAGEMENT is an approach to transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations from a current state A to a desired future state B.

It involves the process, tools and techniques to manage the people-side of change to achieve a required business outcome.

Change management’s goal is to minimize the change impacts on workers and avoid distractions. (source: http://www.change-management.com)

 

Having this cleared, let’s move onto the differences.

 

Main differences between Innovation and Change management:

1. KNOWN VS UKNOWN

Change management largely deals with a lot of known’s, on the other hand innovation management deals with a lot of unknown’s. Every creative ideas has a certain known beginning, but not a known end. In change management point A and point B are well known, it is just a matter of good execution to bring the change to point B.

2. VISION VS EXECUTION

Innovation management is tied to detecting and developing new areas as organizational goals in terms of Strategy and Vision development, whereas Change management is tied to implementation of such a Vision. An innovation is a disruptive change that will challenge your core capabilities and your core rigidness. While, Change management will demand you to convince your people to follow through a chosen path among different alternatives that have been pondered. Although they seem to intersect in some points the skills sets required are different.

3. CHANGE VS INNOVATION – A change does not necessarily mean innovation, while innovation always means the change.

 

QUESTION: IS CHANGE MANAGEMENT JUST A BYPRODUCT OF INNOVATION MANAGEMENT?

 

 

10 савета како направити и одржати успешну презентацију

Здраво,
Пре него што наставим ка конкретној теми, желим да се захвалим својој супрузи која ме је тестирала пре мог јавног наступа са простим питањем:
“Драги мужићу (добро, ово је моја верзија),
Чиме се ти то конкретно бавиш? Видиш, питају ме сви редом од пријатеља до комшија и ја стварно не знам шта да им кажем.”
Замислите моје одушевљење. Коначно сам добио прилику да неком објасним чиме се бавим. То сам и урадио, али два сата касније сам увидео да сам је комплетно изгубио.
Приступио сам онда одбрамбеном ставу свих оних који раде у ИТ индустрији:
”Реци им жено да се бавим рачунарима”.
То је била једна вредна лекција за мене, јер након тог дана решио сам да константно радим на својој вештини презентовања у нади да никада нећу видети израз лица који сам угледао тога дана.
Зато вас љубазно молим да се упознате са мојим искуствима.
У једном озбиљном парчету времена, упустио сам се у интензивно изучавање појмова Иновација и Менаџмента Иновација и добио сам прилику да своје стечено знање применим и поделим са људима ван свог офиса. Наравно, поред своје супруге.
Био сам део семинара IT Open Days 2011у Београду као предавач на тему: ”Управљање иновацијама у Cloud технологији”.
Испрва сам био одушевљен приликом да своје знање поделим са својим суграђанима и младим студентима са Рачунарског факултета, који су узгред сјајни, али онда сам се сетио о чему треба да говорим.
Иновације је веома тешко објаснити некоме ко нема готово никакво знање о овом појму. Србија нажалост, није једна од земаља у којима је иновација популарна тема као што је у осталим европским земљама, те сам на самом почетку имао реалан изазов поред кратког рока за припрему.
Мој избор је био јасан. Имао сам опцију да им пренесем све релевантне информације везане за појам иновација и тиме их комплетно сморим, или да унесем мало креативности и приближим им тему на оригиналан и интересантнан начин.
Наравно, изабрао сам кеативност.
Ово су неки од закључака до којих сам дошао својим искуством:
1. ОДАБЕРИТЕ АЛТЕРНАТИВУ – Одбацио сам у старту конвенционалне начине креирања ппт презентација и одабрао мање познату, али ефикасну алтернативу: http://prezi.com/ntby344eeigr/upravljanje-inovacijama-u-cloud-tehnologiji/
Напомена: Ако нисте приступили линку онда следећа реченица неће имати много смисла
: ова алтернатива ми је дала фокус тамо где сам га желео и било ми је врло лако да је направим (5 радних сати) са симпатичним резултатима. Просудите сами.

2. УПОЗНАЈТЕ СВОЈУ ПУБЛИКУ – Изабрао сам да не говорим академским језиком, већ да прилагодим свој речник и своје изражавање у складу са годинама своје публике.
Напомена: Овакав приступ је био логичан и у складу са мојим сопственим сећањима из школских дана.

3. “БОЈНИ ПОКЛИЧ” – Фокусирао сам “бојни поклич” своје презентације на Иновације и на могућност управљања њима, а не на Cloud computing о коме су други предавачи већ говорили.
Напомена: Иновација је централна тема говора, не Cloud. Тако сам изабрао након простог прегледа Агенде семинара и сазнања да је већ било 5 различитих презентација поштованих колега које су обухватале тему Cloud computing.

4. ПРИМЕРИ, СЛИКЕ И ВИЗУАЛИЗАЦИЈА – Пажљиво сам одабрао примере који су препознатљиви и преко којих су слушаоци могли интимно да се повежу са темом.
Напомена: Био је то прави потез. Латинске речи, историја, дефиниције и набрајања…све то је било неважно, примери су закон!

5. ПОВЕЗАНОСТ ХУМОРОМ – Са хумором сам започео предавање да разбијем лед и дам предавању лични печат. Тим приступом задобио сам њихову пажњу и повезали смо се.
Напомена: Искористио сам своју харизму и духовитост како би урезао своје речи у ум својих слушалаца. Пробајте и ви.

6. ПРОСТОР ЗА ПИТАЊА– Оставио сам довољно простора студентима да формирају и поставе питања, и управо су та питања најбоља повратна информација шта је у вашем предавању било добро, а шта лоше.

Напомена: Та питања које добијете за време своје презентације су најбоље одреднице и савети за вашу следећу презентацију.

7. ОПАСНОСТИ? – Да, давао сам им савете. Не волим да дајем савете, али ове које сам пружао су били прецизни и природни. Представио сам им где су опасности у руковању иновацијама и предложио им шта да гаје у себи како би успели.
Напомена: “Бојни поклич” семинара је био “Ослободите свој потенцијал”. Повезао сам тај поклич са менаџментом идеја и креативношћу и дао им нов, дубљи смисао.

8. ОСЕТИТЕ СВОЈ ПУЛС, КОНТРОЛИШИТЕ ГА– Задржите поглед на својој публици и појединцима у њој, не правите непотребне и махните гестикулације и свакако немојте прелазе реченица обогаћивати са “Ааа”. Одржите своје тело и говор у равнотежи, будите присебни и не паничите ако немате у тренутку шта да кажете. Говорите са својим телом, али само у контексту речи које излазе из вас и поруке коју преносите. Ако је ово све превише тешко и неприродно…погледајте број 9.

9. БУДИТЕ ЉУДСКО БИЋЕ– Нисте машина и то они већ знају, зато не морате да се трудите да постанете такви. Они могу осетити вашу несигурност и то може потенцијално угрозити ефикасно преношење поруке. Међутим, можете ту своју несигурност окренути у позитиван смер тиме што ћете отворено говорити о томе и нашалити се. Тиме нешто што је лоше можете учинити чак и симпатичним.
Напомена: На почетку сам био нервозан… Како сам проговорио прве речи и када сам чуо и сам колико су биле мутне и несигурне прошло ми је кроз главу да ће то бити једна очајна презентација. Тик пре него што је то могло заиста и да се деси, направио сам паузу… сабрао сам своје мисли и чим сам их први пут насмејао опустио сам се апсолутно.

10. БУДИТЕ ДОБАР ПРИПОВЕДАЧ– Запамтите чињеницу да сте ту да пренесете поруку. Она ће бити упамћена само ако добро “продате” себе уз причу и својим генералним перформансом. Будите једноставни, интересантни и духовити. Испричајте причу.

Надам се да је ово за трунчицу помогло да препродите опасности и препреке ка успешном предавању о иновацијама и уопште.
Уздравље.

Public education VS Creativity – Can you break the rules?

Creativity

Last year I started poll on LinkedIn addressing influence of Public education on our creativity. I posted well known Ken Robinson video and waited for the poll answers.

I was taken by surprise how much this topic is hot, and what contributions were left.

In this post I wish to share with you the brilliance of people involved in the discussion.

Enjoy!

“You have to know the rules before you can break them. All things will stifle your creativity or stimulate it to a certain degree and so in that sense, public education won’t kill creativity, but it will guide it towards something which is an acceptable norm within the constraints of established thinking. “

Ian Furniss • I think It’s a difficult question to give a definitive answer to. To some extent there will always be a need for formal education and a saying comes to mind which shows that “You have to know the rules before you can break them”. Could you be a Photoshop pro for example without actually knowing how to use it? No. You could certainly learn to use it without formal education of course, but that takes time and so I tend to see structured learning having an advantage up to a certain point. Where that point changes is in where you mention, thinking inside or outside boxes. Consider something like Partizan and Red Star, if you support one or the other it’s highly unlikely that you will convince an opposing supporter that yours is the team more worthy of support. That goes the same for ideas. When you have had a lifetime of indoctrination into a certain way of thinking, no matter how much you implore someone to “think outside the box”, what you are really looking for is for them to think within the constrains of your box. Could you have convinced Pavarotti that his talents were wasted and he should have been singing heavy rock? The only way to have free creativity is to abandon formal or public education and teach yourself. Even then, that will be limited by your own life experiences, the things which you like or dislike, each of which will influence your direction. At that point the conclusion I come to is that all things will stifle your creativity or stimulate it to a certain degree and so in that sense, public education won’t kill creativity, but it will guide it towards something which is an acceptable norm within the constraints of established thinking. As a caveat, I should add, it is still possible to do something that is seen as original within those constraints, but it is more likely to be an amalgamation or extension of already existing ideas i:e was rock & roll a new idea or was it an adaptation of R&B, blues, jazz, etc?

 “One should be careful with phrases like that old silly stuff of “deschooling society” the very expression of narcissistic intellectualism. Education is good by itself, schools too. We can certainly make them better and better.” 

Gabriel A. Ramirez • The question itself is tricky. In some way implies that education kills creativity. It puts education under suspect. A much better question is daniel Vauldrin’s and, perhaps an still a better one is: What ca one do to help education and educators to enhance, through educational systems, creativity even and more? One should be careful with phrases like that old silly stuff of “deschooling society” the very expression of narcissistic intellectualism. Or such a good music with lyrics that goes like this “… We don’t need no education, we don´t need school control. Teacher, teacher lives the kid alone” The authors of that music did never ever imagine that with that lyrics they were so massively contributing to today overabundance of “bricks in the wall” all over the world and specially in Britain. Education is good by itself, schools too. We can certainly make them better and better.

Job hiring: Much emphasis has been put on their having a degree, and less on what they bring to the table in regards to real experience, expertise, skills, and abilities.
Melanie Edwards • I am very fascinated by all the comments in this poll. I appreciate the broad spectrum of backgrounds and personalities that LinkedIn brings together for discussions such as this. I agree with much of what I am reading, and had my own “filters” in place when I first commented. For one, thinking in terms just the American public school system. Going beyond that, and outside of other “filters” i had in place, I can certainly appreciate the comments of Ian, Michelle and Vasco regarding stifling creativity in order to be compliant with a structure (my paraphrasing) — but want to take it further. In the USA, there are many people who have not completed their formal education to the point of securing a degree, for a variety of reasons. Some, may pick it back up later in life, some may not, again for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, the persons who are not degreed (I refuse to say uneducated, as that is NOT definitive in all cases) are most often “weeded” out of an interview process for jobs or even promotions, and passed by for someone who has a degree. It is common knowledge, as well, that few people in the USA work in their field of degree anyway. Much emphasis has been put on their having a degree, and less on what they bring to the table in regards to real experience, expertise, skills, and abilities. Our own corporate hiring practices throughout the USA award the people who have conformed to the point of securing a degree (any degree, often), and sometimes overlook the person who can offer the most to the company’s bottom line, top line, mission, and whole environment. IMHO.

 

“Freedom to self-determination leads to more creative behaviour!”

Ron Broens • Vitomir Rašić already shared the speech from Ken Robinson which explains that the current education set-up is not really supporting the development of creative skills and competencies. But also have a look at Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc . His speech is all about following your passions and making your own decisions for your education. Freedom to self-determination leads to more creative behaviour! The system requires change to become more effective in teaching skills that are more difficult to measure. Stay hungry, stay foolish!

 

I lost my independence of thought. So, along about 10 years of “professional career”, I ended up seeing that it was exactly those personal traces that were so much frowned upon that were actually valuable in the real world: autonomy of opinion, transversal thinking, imagination… the things I had to keep in a box in order to succeed in academia are the things society actually needs in order to survive and thrive.”

Vasco Névoa • Like Ian, I agree that we are first and foremost the sum of our experiences. Hence we cannot escape the shared experience that is school. It formats us, whether we like school or not. The deeper question is then: shouldn’t we be more than just that sum? We all believe that we should be capable of using all that experience in novel ways, by remixing it and re-contextualizing it, and we see the world becomes better when we do it. The problem is that this creative thinking implies “doing things differently”. Stepping outside the norm. And being different, like Michelle pointed out, is usually frowned upon in the academic world. It starts in the kindergarten and goes all the way up to college. If you act differently, you’re either weird or cheating. And this is one point where I’d like to make a positive criticism: not all cheating is bad. Some of it is quite creative. Some of it is creative enough to make a difference in the capacity for survival in extreme or unusual conditions (like, say, a global crisis?) Personally, I was always the “different” kind of student. Mostly I was just weird and sometimes loud-mouthed, and sometimes I felt I had to cheat to survive like anyone else. It was a very long and very tough fight, and by the time I finished college I thought I had won: I knew the system and more or less how to navigate it with moderate success. I kept my imagination to myself and just concentrated on being “compatible”, which made me an excellent asset for any company who was looking for a robotic humanoid to expand their production line. But in truth, I had lost. I lost my independence of thought. So, along about 10 years of “professional career”, I ended up seeing that it was exactly those personal traces that were so much frowned upon that were actually valuable in the real world: autonomy of opinion, transversal thinking, imagination… the things I had to keep in a box in order to succeed in academia are the things society actually needs in order to survive and thrive. I’ve been investing in my old self for the past few years, trying to recover that imaginative child that didn’t take “no” as an acceptable option. The good news is that I’m slowly getting there. The bad news is that there is a critical point of no return, at least apparently, and that others are not as lucky. Some of my classmates fared very well in academia, but very poorly outside. They forgot how to think independently, and worst of all they lost their self-confidence. I know some other people that just gave up their mind, transformed into a neural message recorder, a knowledge sponge, and are now capable of memorising just about anything you throw at them, but are utterly incapable of criticising what they have learned. These are the casualties of the “education war”, for we are at war with our nature when we force ourselves to memorise something we don’t even like. And they happen because school is a massive logistic system, and most people believe it must be managed as such, leaving no room for individuality — that would be too complex to manage. Criticising constructively, I believe that “cheating” must be revised. The system must welcome some forms of cheating. For example, if a student blatantly copies another student’s test by peeking over the shoulder, that’s plain stealing and no benefit comes from it. But if two or three students work together to split the heavy curriculum between themselves and share their knowledge during the exams, that’s actually very organised and competitive team work. The kind of successful team work that companies kill for. This is another aspect I think the schooling system has to seriously improve in the short term: promote self-reliance and individuality via team work. Less individual exams, more team challenges. And more group learning. Cramming 30 to 50 kids into the same classroom in front of a teacher is not group learning; they have to be able to experience the subject freely, to discuss, to debate, to contradict, to find the logic behind it — TOGETHER. This is what takes people to finding their place in society — a place where they feel useful, not the first place where they can survive. Like Melanie says, there are some fantastic teachers out there, I had some. Unfortunately they are fighting a loosing battle against the majority of bosses, colleagues, students, and parents. This positivism of believing in the individual student and bringing out its best personal features is something that has to be institutionalized, or we will just keep making humanoid robots. Which are defective by nature, in that role. Some of the “alternative” northern european and north-american schools have achieved this goal. But why are they viewed as the exception instead of an excellent example to follow? Because of logistics. It is far easier to control a system with a simplistic rule set, than it is to care for quality.

 

My final thought is that creativity and originality have to be valued. The older a student gets, the more difficult it is for that student to offer original insights without being laughed at. After being ridiculed a few times by peers, that student will most likely keep her mouth shut the next time she has an idea. It doesn’t matter how much encouragement she gets from her teacher, she will not share it. After a while, she might even stop getting those ideas. What’s the point anyway? On the other hand, what if students got marks for original ideas or clever ways of finding solutions? What if we really looked at the work in progress and not just the final outcome?”

Michelle Vaudrin • People go to school in the hopes of getting into the university and the program of their choice. So what do American students do to get into university? They study for the SATs. I have never written the SATs, so I would like to know the following: Does the SAT have a section to evaluate creativity? (If it can really be evaluated.) Does the test look at HOW the students got their answers, or is it only the end result that is looked at? As for Canadians, we have to get high grades. To get high grades, you have to give the teacher what the teacher wants. Yes, there are teachers who encourage creativity, curiosity, and spontaneous discussions. Just last week, I was teaching history/geography to grade 5 and 6 students, and we were really into the Canadian Shield and rock formation. I kept looking at my watch worried about not having enough time to finish my lesson. I found myself saying, “Ok, guys. We have to stop this discussion now. We still have all these pages to cover for today.” I felt disgusted with myself afterwards. As a teacher, I constantly feel this pressure to cover the whole government program. I also have the parents to worry about in the private sector. “What did you do in class today Johnny?” Imagine the parents’ faces when they hear, “Oh, we just looked at rocks and talked about them.” My final thought is that creativity and originality have to be valued. The older a student gets, the more difficult it is for that student to offer original insights without being laughed at. After being ridiculed a few times by peers, that student will most likely keep her mouth shut the next time she has an idea. It doesn’t matter how much encouragement she gets from her teacher, she will not share it. After a while, she might even stop getting those ideas. What’s the point anyway? On the other hand, what if students got marks for original ideas or clever ways of finding solutions? What if we really looked at the work in progress and not just the final outcome?

 

My original question was:

Can public education kill our creativity? (http://linkd.in/ehGsqy)

“Can educational frame limit us to thinking just within the “box”? Are we too much influenced by social paradigms that we cannot think outside them? http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_changing_education_paradigms.html “
Vitomir
My question to you:  What can public education do to enhance creativity?

Serbia has potential for Frugal innovation

Strawberry-team_Serbia

Hello,
In previous post I tried to bring you closer to Frugal innovation and its examples and showed you what impact they have on world most influential markets.

(http://www.innovation-post.com/?p=43)

In this post, I`ll try to connect the core of Frugal innovation with Serbia and its market.
To recollect most crucial elements of Frugal innovation I`ll quote my previous post:

Key elements of Frugal innovation:

  1. Outsource all non-core activities
  2. Use technology in imaginative way
  3. Apply mass production techniques in unexpected areas

Serbia in these days is little known by its outsourcing potential, but in fact respected number of Europe`s and North America`s companies choose to outsource their business to Serbia.

Why is that you wonder?
It`s pretty simple: High quality work force for low wages.

Serbia`s standpoint by elements:

1.Outsource all non-core activities

Serbia is ideal ground for Frugal innovations because of large number of capable experts that can solve high level system problems by developing solutions that are cheap, practical, efficient and accessible. There is no longer need for Asia, there is great outsourcing potential with far better infrastructure in the heart of the Balkans and in the Europe itself.

Serbia had one of the toughest educations systems in the Europe that mustered legions of bright and resourceful work force. As Serbia passed through some of the toughest times in its history with recent wars and economical transition, many of those bright people fled all over world to become best and most respected workers in their companies. Many of them stayed behind to try to rebuild what was left.
Serbian intellectual elite is represented with 11% of Serbia`s population overall.  Downside is 22% of overall unemployment (but great for outsourcing). Currently there is 22 000 young students that are seeking job, waiting for the chance to put to use their hard earned knowledge and bring prosper to their employers. In various sectors: banking, ICT, Production and Engineering, smart companies are investing with the support of Serbian government. That fact was recognized by some of most influential companies in the world, that chose to invest in this untapped source of profit. Boy, they were right!

Belgrade, the capital, has been awarded as the City of the Future for Southern Europe 2007 by the fDi Magazine.

  • Selection criteria – economic potential, cost effectiveness, human resources, IT and telecommunications, transport, quality of life, and FDI promotion.

In 2008 the municipality of Indjija was ranked among the Top 25 Most Attractive locations for foreign direct investment in Europe by the fDi Magazine.

“Serbia is forecast to make the largest improvement in the business environment in the region of Eastern Europe between 2009 and 2013. Out of 16 countries included in the research, Serbia will be leading the region in terms of business reforms by a wide margin”.

PricewaterhouseCoopers ranked Serbia as the 3rd most attractive manufacturing and 7th most attractive services FDI destination among emerging economies.

Ernst & Young recorded nearly 150 inward investment projects in Serbia in 2007, 2008 and 2009 – the 2nd best performance in the South East Europe region.
So as fertile ground to super quality outsourcing, Serbia gets + for good foundation for Frugal innovation. Low cost, high quality workforce is perfect ground for Frugal enterprise.

2.Use technology in imaginative ways

Precisely that potential of bright and resourceful citizens, gives Serbia unique ability to generate low cost, but brilliant products and services.

Confronting limited resources, bad economic state, and tough legal restrictions Serbian experts are largely used to work with limited resources, bad conditions and to seek direct and cost-efficient ways to indulge market needs. Interesting fact is that universities and institutes apply the least patent applications, especially business related. So, one of the recent great initiatives is combining technology potential of the academic research and their spin-offs to industry leaders investors and business intelligence. Using DataStation platform as an infrastructure in future will allow more intimate connection between university and industry, and hopefully spawning large amount of useful and efficient ideas, products and services for start-ups. This way technology that is developed, can be really used and commercialized.

Downside is definitively embarrassing outcome of IP protection rights for the patents and inventions. Serbia has 299 patented products and services this year from several thousand of registered inventors. That is compared to 14.435 patents from Germany just a fragment. Luckily, there are ongoing initiatives in strong innovation entities within Serbia that are constantly working on spreading the knowledge and help with IP rights protection and constant encouragement of creativity and innovation overall. Innovation landscape is changing for sure.

Serbia`s innovators are well known winners of many worldwide competitions. For example, they collected and won 6 gold medals and 3 silver ones on the worlds most prestigious fair of science and innovations based in Moscow, called “Archimedes” . There is quality on the work here.

Examples:

Best results are in medicine, pharmacy and industrial machines, construction projects.

Hazelnut chopper – Former workers in construction of aircraft parts from Utva in cooperation with Milan Grubanov from Pančevo, constructed unique chopper that can chop and classify over 100 kilograms of hazelnuts per hour. This automated machine could make major difference in in region as one of the best competency advantage from the rest of the competition. (source: http://www.b92.net/biz/vesti/srbija.php?yyyy=2011&mm=12&dd=11&nav_id=564828)

Strawberry Tree – Several students of Serbia led by Miloš Milisavljević won the European Commission competition of renewable sources of energy with their project in the category of “Cuts in Public spending”.  From 309 projects, as youngest participants their work on Public solar light mobile recharger took the throne by right. They call it “Strawberry Tree”.  (source: http://www.blic.rs/Vesti/Drustvo/247679/Studenti-iz-Srbije-pobedili-na-takmicenju-Evropske-unije )


Fuel-efficient engines for cars – Professor dr Vujo Gordić, graduated engineer from Užice, won the International festival of innovation, knowledge and creativity “Tesla Fest 2008”. Gordić invented engine that for same amount of energy spent creates 12,68 times greater torque than traditional internal combustion engines. That means that for the same amount of fuel, car that is using his engine can travel 10 times greater distance than standard SUS engine car.

3. Apply mass production techniques in unexpected areas

Strong IT companies and software engineers lead the way for this section. Major productivity, efficiency and quality of developed solutions in ICT sector is prime jewel in the crown of Serbia`s market. Combining best practice techniques from industry and PM methodologies with local mentality and resourcefulness leads IT companies to thrive.

Example:

 

DataStation – Cloud based innovation management software platform.

Using Cloud and SaaS model from its birth 2005, and applying custom techniques and methodologies in combination with world best practices to uncover one of the unique and best software solutions for innovation management in the world. Young, unique and diverse IT company with special mission – to push the boundaries of software engineering beyond to excellence with the touch of peculiarity.

Engage outsourcing potential, low cost high quality work force and strong ICT.

Scratch the surface, there may be a diamond underneath.
