Well, a month and a half later the eagerly awaited (cough, cough, gag...) innovation contest winner was announced.

It amuses me greatly.

No, I'm not going to reveal the winning idea. That'd be a Bad Idea. I will say that I know someone who has been working to build a business around it for 2-3 years now and it's finally picking up some steam. But I won't spoil the fun and tell anyone at work that it's not really "innovative" if someone else is doing it (and has been for quite a while).

(Oh, wait. I think some of my coworkers read this.)

At least they found a way to get rid of that stereo. :-)

Fast Company had a "unit of 1" thing on innovation a year or three ago. As someone commented in your previous entry: innovation doesn't work that way.

You have mentioned "Innovation and how not to."[1] previously. I am wondering if you have ideas on "Innovation and how to"? Really, it would be nice to hear.
