Exploring Possible Futures Cases of Strategic Innovation by Philips (Design) for the TGCI Team March 13, 2012, Trivandrum, Kerala

n


summ

The slides present a compilation of the cases of various ‘strategic innovation’ projects conducted by Philips Design over the last 50+ years. By no means complete, the range nevertheless illustrates a wide diversity of projects and concepts, in terms of domains, content, the future scopes and business models. The selection was presented to the TGCI (Trivandrum Gloval City of Innovation, www.tgci.in) team in the campus of the International Institute of Social Entrepreneurship in Trvandrum, Kerala, to both inform and inspire their social and technological innovation programs.

BUSINESS:

Hmm.. (*)

(*) I often say that if Philips would endorse the LiMe concept and didn’t react with such a disbelief and resistance, the world now wouldn’t know the word ‘blogging’; we would all be ‘liming’ these days.
