Science or Art In Product Innovation

A Whitepaper by IBM

For a lazy reader like me, it's hard to drag me read, but recently an article in SolidWorks Community attracted my attention. It go like this:

Far too many companies think of Innovation as an art rather than the result of high-performance business processes.

Every day, companies gamble with their futures, making bets big and small, risking “currency” in the form of their strategic direction…

Best Performing Companies derive 65% of their success from innovative projects:

65% of best performers succes from innovative projects. The best example in my mind now is: Apple's products, I-pod, I-phone, I-pad, I-touch etc. In short period of time, now Apple is the leading technologies player in the market by launching products that drive the whole world crazy!

SolidWorks World 2011, San Antonio, Tx

World class event of the year.

Yes, I been to SolidWorks World 2010, Anaheim, CA. The trip was unforgetable. At the same time, we went to Hollywood and world 1st Disneyland and took picture with Mickey Mouse. So wish that I can go again. ^.^

Never though that I haven wake up from my unforgetable experience, SolidWorks World 2011 is now open for registration; just right after the launch of SolidWorks 2011 Beta 1.

This time, SolidWorks World will be held in San Antonio, Texas. 23-26 Jan 2011.

The famous river walk is a just part of the MUST-GO reason for you to attend SolidWorks World. SolidWorks World offer you a chance to:

> get to know SolidWorks users around the world,
> be the 1st to know what's new in Solidworks 2012 (yes, I really mean 2012)
> solution partners' showcase and exhibition.

For the time being, I just put 3 because this is not the main intention I wrote this. The main reason:

Just in case you didn't see the green little post-it in the link I shared, do read above image properly: SAVE $200 for early bird. The currency is in US Dollar, so you can save up to RM700.00 if you register before 29th October 2010.

Don't take too much time to think, I can guarantee you it will be fun and fruitful. Ask your boss to sponsor you now and maybe you can get a better bargain for flight ticket too. :)
