I was lucky enough to go to the Forrester Research IT Forum this summer which I thoroughly enjoyed as it crystallized a lot of my thinking and shone a torch on some important issues. My immediate reaction was to look at the Industrialization of IT , and it’s impact on the workers within the industry.
I’ve found some Forrester videos on Youtube which focus on innovation that I think you will want to see.
CIOs: Don’t Wait to Innovate : Forrester Research Principal Analyst Bobby Cameron says IT can become an innovation leader by helping find, fund, and reward business innovation.
Enterprise Architecture and Innovation: Forrester Research Vice President Mike Gilpin says Enterprise Architecture professionals are in a unique position to drive innovation. In order to do so, they must manage the process via what Forrester calls an innovation pipeline. Great definition of Innovation!
Social Technologies: Your Customers Are Revolting: Forrester Research Vice President Charlene Li says emerging technologies don’t tell you much about the adoption of Social Computing; people do. Identifying people’s various levels of participation — why do people participate and how do they participate — give you a better understanding of how your audience is contributing to the Groundswell. A particlar favorite of mine as it demonstrates true innovation – customers challenging their suppliers.
