The Most Valuable Commodity on Earth

Performance management guru Peter Drucker once noted that the greatest contribution of management in the 20th century was the 50-fold increase in manual work productivity. For the current century, Drucker calls upon management to similarly increase the productivity of knowledge employees.

How can we answer this call? Not by simply acquiring knowledge, but by sharing knowledge with each other. Knowledge sharing is the first step to enabling the workers of today to succeed in business.

In the spirit of knowledge sharing, we have recently revised and expanded the Innovation 360 Institute Online Resource Library. Here you will find a long list of useful resources — from webinars to case studies, research to thought leadership. For example:

  • Converting Human Need Into Innovation – A 30-minute webinar that explains how to enable true innovation by viewing product and service innovations as “jobs to be done” that fulfill specific customer needs.
  • Continuous Improvement in a Poor Economy – Research into how Lean Six Sigma companies are responding to the economic crisis, looking at business operations overall and at improvement programs themselves.
  • Leadership Competencies Development at Intuit – An in-depth look at how Intuit identifies and develops internal talent for leadership roles.

I invite you to download these resources to assist you in the areas of strategic planning, continuous improvement, systematic innovation and leadership development.

As author Kurt Vonnegut once said, “New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.” I am confident you will find our library to be a valuable resource.
