KEYNOTE: Big Data Vs Human Data
8:45 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
Dave Snowden, Founder & Chief Scientist, The Cynefin Company

Will information come from the misty mountains of the internet or the cloud with no human engagement as Big Data suggests? Don’t we need human sensors to share knowledge? Our popular and provocative speaker discusses the cycles of techno-fetishism that try and ignore the importance of human intelligence, seeking to create the great algorithm which will answer the questions of life, the universe, and everything else. Big Data is important, but it’s only the start of the journey, and savvy organizations realize they need a synthesis of machine and human intelligence. Get lots of insights and ideas to take home to your organization.

Rainie shows how the large, loosely knit social circles of networked individuals expand opportunities for learning, problem solving, decision making, and personal interaction. The new social operating system of “networked individualism” requires us to develop networking skills and strategies, work on maintaining ties, and balance multiple overlapping networks. The “triple revolution” that has brought on this transformation: the rise of social networking, the capacity of the internet to empower individuals, and the always-on connectivity of mobile devices. Drawing on extensive evidence, Rainie examines how the move to networked individualism has driven changes in organizational structure, job performance criteria, and the way people interact in workplaces. He presents a glimpse of the new networked enterprise and way of working.

Linda Hummel, Chief Knowledge Officer, Fifth Third Bank
Katrina B Pugh, Lecturer & President, Columbia University & AlignConsulting

JHU/APL’s Knowledge Sharing and Innovation Initiative has been integral in moving forward an expanded innovation program. Focused on the goal of increasing innovation through small, funded exploration projects and increased sharing of technical knowledge, the initiative implemented changes to processes, technologies, and culture. The results are a community-driven program to fund project ideas proposed using social media, an enhanced community of practice program, and a program to develop and share videos that share technical knowledge and capabilities. In the second presentation, learn how a findability strategy can be extended to an innovation strategy. Users need to find people, rich content and just-in-time answers. Advancements in technology are helping us to get there, by providing a multitude of ways to access those resources, even serendipitously. Innovation is about bridging the content of findability and serendipity with changes in the markets or competitive environment, activities of the firm, and technology. That bridging is the work of the skilled convener. This session covers key aspects of findability, serendipity and innovation in our ever-changing competitive and collaborative landscape. Grab the strategies and techniques and hear about lessons learned and tips for developing, promoting and supporting an enterprise innovation program in your organization.

Attendee Luncheon in the Enterprise Solutions Showcase

C203: Communities for Innovation
2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.
Jeanne Holm, Senior Technology Advisor to the Mayor, Deputy CIO at City of Los Angeles, Information Technology Agency, City of Los Angeles UCLA, Open Data Collaboratives, International Academy of Astronautics

The U.S. government’s open data site, Data.gov, has blazed a trail for openness, transparency, and innovation. With more than 400,000 datasets from 180 agencies and many U.S. cities and states, the U.S. open data platform provides a wealth of information for citizens, researchers, and entrepreneurs. However, at the heart of Data.gov is a blend of data, information, and KM principles and practices that provides a platform for innovation. The expression of this is the Data.gov communities—17 topical areas focused around national priorities such as energy, health, and education. These communities (including Safety.Data.gov) allow collaboration amongst citizens, developers, analysts, data journalists, government officials, and business owners to get data into the hands of citizens to help them make better informed decisions.

C204: Clever Thinking & Organizational Success
3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Jeff Slapper, Vice President, MWH
Richard McDermott, President, McDermott Consulting Henley Business School

This talk describes how MWH, a global leader in wet infrastructure, uses “clever thinking” to distinguish itself with customers and separate itself from competitors in a rapidly changing business environment. It describes how individuals can distinguish themselves through clever thinking, which research on innovation suggests isn’t inherent talent. It can be developed through discipline and practice. Drawing on this research and interviews with managers and technical experts from a variety of fields, this talk describes the mechanisms of individual and organizational clever thinking: increased situational awareness, deeply understanding the science and principles that underlie the diagnosis and decisions, and generating unusual “just right” solutions. Using practical, hands-on examples, speakers share the “thinking tools and techniques” that improve the clever application of knowledge not by setting standards or best practices, but by guiding good thinking.

Coffee Break in the Enterprise Search Showcase
3:45 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.
C205: Balanced Scorecard Approach to Innovation
4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
John Gutierrez, Partner, Kalypso

Companies in every industry try to create environments that foster breakthrough new products and services, but few can evaluate the overall effectiveness of their innovation process. Faced with numerous business and operational challenges—from innovation objectives poorly aligned to corporate strategy to disconnected innovation data management—companies are too often making decisions about innovation based on incomplete and disparate information. Companies that focus on “running innovation like a business”— using a balanced scorecard approach—are more likely to drive real, measurable value for their shareholders. Gutierrez outlines the most effective strategies he’s found to institutionalize a more integrated innovation approach, from the front-end of innovation through in-market results.
