Original Projects - The Social Network for Ideas Innovation de business model : best of 2010 Dans le plus pur esprit des best off de fin d’année, je vous propose une compilation de mes articles sur l’innovation de business model : Pour lancer le sujet commençons par le très précis et très exhaustif rapport sur l’innovation de Delphine MANCEAU et Pascal MORAND en 2009, détaillant ce qui freine l’innovation en France.

Comme point central de ce best off, je vous propose une présentation courte synthétisant l’innovation de business model (mise-à-jour dernièrement pour le réseau PACA Innovation) et une version encore plus condensée en format magazine.
