CEO Secrets: 'Don't sell your technology too early' Convicted Post Office workers have names cleared. Europa ultima un plan para dar la batalla en el negocio de los datos. El momento de ponerse manos a la obra no podría ser más propicio: en pleno cambio político en Bruselas, con la llegada de Ursula von der Leyen —durante años delfín de Angela Merkel y figura muy cercana a la canciller alemana— a la cúspide del Ejecutivo comunitario.

Europa ultima un plan para dar la batalla en el negocio de los datos

La Comisión Europea prepara un plan de ataque tecnológico para el arranque del mandato. El objetivo es impedir que los monopolios en el acceso y manejo de los datos se conviertan en una barrera que impida crecer a sus empresas y depender de un socio como EE UU que, con Donald Trump en la presidencia, se ha demostrado mucho menos leal de lo que cabría esperar en un inquilino de la Casa Blanca. A diferencia de hace años, cuando la cuestión de la economía de los datos —un ámbito en el que las firmas especializadas ingresaron 59.000 millones de euros en 2017 solo en suelo europeo— flotaba en el ambiente comunitario como una tarea más en la larga lista de pendientes, ahora la prioridad es clara.

Everything You Need to Know About 5G. Today’s mobile users want faster data speeds and more reliable service.

Everything You Need to Know About 5G

The next generation of wireless networks—5G—promises to deliver that, and much more. With 5G, users should be able to download a high-definition film in under a second (a task that could take 10 minutes on 4G LTE). And wireless engineers say these networks will boost the development of other new technologies, too, such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and the Internet of Things.

If all goes well, telecommunications companies hope to debut the first commercial 5G networks in the early 2020s. Right now, though, 5G is still in the planning stages, and companies and industry groups are working together to figure out exactly what it will be. To achieve this, wireless engineers are designing a suite of brand-new technologies. At the moment, it’s not yet clear which technologies will do the most for 5G in the long run, but a few early favorites have emerged.

In markets characterized by rapid change and a ceaseless quest for the faster, better way to operate, one of the most prized corporate attributes is innovation.

How do you build a culture of innovation?

But many of the natural byproducts of corporate success—hierarchy, routinization, the elimination of risk—can stifle innovation. A 2009 study in the Journal of Marketing examined 759 companies across 17 countries, looking for the factors that predicted whether a particular firm would innovate. While the degree of innovation was influenced by external factors such as the local culture, government, and supply of labor and capital, the study found, the most important driver was internal corporate culture. An article in Sloan MIT Management Review identifies a series of "building blocks" for an innovative culture, including hard-to-measure characteristics such as values, behavior, and climate.

CEO Secrets: Five tips from tech titans

How do you build a global digital brand from scratch like Instagram, Kickstarter or Wikipedia? What better way to find out, we thought, than to ask the founders who built these companies. For a few months now we've been asking the bosses who cross our paths at BBC News to share the advice they wish they had known when they started out, as part of our ongoing series CEO Secrets. Our coverage of the recent Web Summit in Dublin, followed by some fortuitous chief executive visits to London, have allowed us to assemble an impressive line-up of tech talent.

The hope is that the advice they choose to share will both betray something about their personalities, and the environments that fostered their businesses.

It was an European project within the Central Europe Programme that foresaw cooperation between five Central European cities: Leipzig (DE), Genoa (IT), Gdansk (PL), Ljubljana (SI) and Pecs (HU). The project specifically addressed creative industries that are defined as “those industries which have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent and which have a potential for wealth and job creation through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property.” “Lo que está en crisis es la manera de gestionar las empresas hoy” Capital - A fatal flaw when choosing the right leader. Politicians and other leaders from virtually every corner of the globe inevitably disappoint. But the much bigger concern is the mindset of voters, board members, and nominating committees when selecting our leaders — and the uncomfortable realisation that we’re not very good at it.

What if we’re not that good at figuring out the most critical challenges and opportunities we want our leader to solve? I’m not even talking about the myriad of mistakes we make in selecting talent when we hire, from preferring people who look and act like us to believing that we can size someone up from an interview (the data on this last point, by the way, shows we are astoundingly bad at that). The single biggest problem — the fatal flaw in choosing presidents, school board leaders, or football coaches — is that we believe we can predict the future rather than looking for a leader who can quickly adapt to whatever the unpredictable future holds.
