Innovation Can’t Keep the Web Fast

CSS - Tricks

Every so often, the fruits of innovation bear fruit in the form of improvements to the foundational layers of the web. As technological innovations such as HTTP/3 and 5G emerge, we must take care not to rest on our laurels and simply assume they will heal our ills once and for all. If we do, we’ll certainly be having this discussion again when the successors to those technologies loom. The post Innovation Can’t Keep the Web Fast appeared first on CSS-Tricks.

Institutional Innovation - I Have a Dream

Edge Perspectives

When you look more closely at these initiatives, they tend to be applying digital technology in ways that can help the company do what it’s always done, just faster and cheaper. As I'll suggest, digital technology can help to drive a much more fundamental transformation but it will first be necessary to challenge all of our cherished assumptions about how to run an institution. Technology: Shift from tasks to learning.

The Financialization of Disruptive Technology

The Agile Manager

Organize for innovation , re-acquire lost tribal knowledge , challenge - but respect - commercial orthodoxy , and constantly re-apply what you learn to change the rules of engagement in an industry. Cheap capital makes it easy for anybody to enter the innovation game.

Innovation Exhaustion

The Agile Manager

"We've tried nothin' and we're all out of ideas." -- Ned Flanders' mom, "The Simpsons", season 8 episode 8: Hurricane Neddy We're constantly being told by the popular business press that we live in an "ideas economy," where survival is a function of disruption because consumer behaviors and emerging technologies are conspiring to obsolete the economics of established businesses. But even Amazon is showing signs of innovation fatigue. Innovation Strategic IT

Your technology architecture and engineering organization should coevolve as your startup grows

SpringOne Platform: Four great days of sharing new ways of innovating with Pivotal Platform


We took a look at the fact that as organizations migrate to Pivotal Platform to increase the speed of their application delivery, one last hurdle may be mastering the complexity that comes with cloud, microservices and containers across a vast technology landscape, and at scale.

Innovation Versus Control

The Agile Manager

It is also a good story to tell Wall Street as it allows a firm to create the aura of being the technology leader in their space while trafficking in the success of companies like Amazon. Platform" is conceptually conveyed as a technological phenomenon. But it stands to reason that the defining characteristic of the platform organization is neither the technology assets that they produce (e.g., This separates the sclerotic laggards from the adaptive innovators.

Organizing for Innovation, Part I

The Agile Manager

Innovation happens through people, not assets. Assets can be an impediment to innovation: software that is brittle, monolithic, poorly encapsulated, or high-maintenance inhibits creative new uses of it. But assets don't innovate by themselves. Innovation happens through the people you have. We saw last month that innovation is stifled where management's prevailing goal is control. Innovation

The Would-Be Innovator's Dilemma

The Agile Manager

It is appealing to think of your trading partners and competitors seeing your company as an industry leading innovator. Unfortunately, as we saw last month, innovation is an increasingly expensive game. You aren't the pied piper who will lead industry change, nor can you afford an escalating arms race developing weaponized technology. Do You have the Financial Profile of an Innovator? Innovation is risk, and equity - not debt - is risk capital.

Organizing for Innovation, Part II

The Agile Manager

3 Satisfying requisite variety is where technology platforms enable autonomous teams. While it is true that it is people and not assets who innovate, the assets can enable or prohibit such innovation. InnovationLast month we defined autonomy by the classes of decisions that are devolved to the team level, specifically that the smallest organizational unit - a team - has the ability to decide what it should do, can do, and will do.

Organizing for Innovation, Part VI: Putting It All Together

The Agile Manager

Visualizing it helps explain how all these things combine to create an organization that innovates as well as operates. With enterprises increasingly feeling the heat from new companies, technologies and products, executives charge managers with extracting more innovations from the business.

Looking for disruption? Don't look to technology

The Agile Manager

The chattering classes would have us believe that technology disrupts. By way of example, the technology to enable the sharing economy existed for years, but monetizing everything from spare time to the spare bedroom only became appealing when mortgages went underwater, wages stagnated, and the labor participation rate dropped. That computer technology was at the center of this disruption should be no surprise given the rise of the Information Age several decades ago.

Customer Conversations - How Intuit and Edmodo Innovate using Amazon RDS. From tax preparation to safe social networks, Amazon RDS brings new and innovative applications to the cloud. Empowering innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Amazon Web Services (AWS). I often get to meet, discuss, and learn from innovators how they are using AWS to deliver transformative applications to their users, customers and partners. This is a unique and innovative platform.

Organizing for Innovation, Part V: The Leadership Challenge

The Agile Manager

Over time, jobs become working annuities that require little servicing (such as skill acquisition or excessively long working hours) for comfortable levels of compensation with job security (by e.g., being the only ones familiar with a technology, service or function). While constraints force institutional responses such as prioritization and innovation, they are also opportunities for a systemic change. Innovation Leadership Restructuring IT

Organizing for Innovation Part IV: Autonomy at Scale

The Agile Manager

But a technology organization of tens of thousands of people will have hundreds of teams - and therefore an extraordinarily large number of communication pathways. Creating complex higher-order offerings as composites of lower-level capabilities is the “platform effect” of innovation. InnovationIt is easy to understand how a small organization of autonomous teams can function.

Using this visualisation, we can go further and identify patterns which will guide our technology strategy and software development investments in the present and the future. In this situation, the business should ask “Can we leverage the potential of technology here?

But Is It Really a Tech Firm?

The Agile Manager

On the plus side, tech firms have to invest for invention and innovation. The ability to create technology simply yields another Xerox PARC or Kodak digital camera; the ability to operationalize R&D is entirely another. Innovation Strategic IT

The Tortoise Strategy

The Agile Manager

Specifically, the technology cycle wasn't enough to overcome the credit cycle for peer-to-peer lending firms, which were resorting to selling their loan portfolios to traditional lenders, becoming buyers of last resort themselves when no buyers emerged, and offering deposit insurance for lenders.

Strategic IT Does More than Assume Technology Risk, it Mitigates Business Risk

The Agile Manager

Thus leadership and its derivative characteristics - notably innovation and responsiveness - are the result of calculated, not wanton, risk taking. Being asked to do nothing more than assume risk for something such as availability or performance of technology is appealing from an IT perspective because it’s a space we know, or at least we think we know. play with shiny new toys) without taking us out of our comfort zone (the technology space versus the business space).

Late Mover Advantage

The Agile Manager

Orders duplicated across multiple intermediaries meant that even the smartest algorithms and the fastest technology would provide only a fleeting edge as competitors would quickly catch up. An intermediary couldn't crush the competition with customer love, innovation, tech firepower, or scale.

Invest in What You Know

The Agile Manager

Many people in the tech industry - myself included - have advocated recasting technology as a financial phenomenon that yields returns rather than an operating cost to be minimized. Well, more accurately, recasting some portion of technology this way. In technology, "investing in what you know" requires substantial business domain knowledge and tech fluency with generous helpings of behavioral science and economics. Innovation Leadership
