The LEAN Sprint Experiments power breakthrough discovery in both the Scientific Method and our adaptation of it for entrepreneurship: Herein lies the key to breakthrough in both: If your guess disagrees with experiment, it is wrong. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your guess is, how smart you are, who made the guess, or what their name is… it is wrong. – Richard Feynman But while experiments are highly effective at testing guesses, simply running experiments is also not enough. This begs the question: “Where do good guesses or ideas come from?” The answer is that good ideas can come from anywhere. This is exactly what the LEAN Sprint is designed to do. What is the LEAN Sprint A LEAN sprint is a time-boxed iteration cycle for sourcing, ranking, and testing new ideas. We have successfully applied LEAN Sprints both internally in our team and across several dozen entrepreneurial teams at both startups and large organizations. 1. 2. 3.

Amsterdam sera neutre carbone dès 2015 grâce à Cisco Par Frédéric Bordage - 02/10/2008 La semaine dernière, j’ai eu la chance de participer à la “Connected Urban Development (CUD) Conference” organisée par Cisco à Amsterdam. L’évènement avait pour objectif de présenter les avancées de la ville d’Amsterdam en matière de lutte contre les émissions de CO2, et de rendre publics les premiers résultats du programme CUD de Cisco. Avant de nous intéresser au programme CUD en détail, j’aimerais vous présenter le retour d’expérience de la ville d’Amsterdam. C’est Bas Boorsma, responsable du programme Connected Urban Development (CUD) à la ville d’Amsterdam qui est chargé de trouver des solutions. Allié à Cisco, la ville d’Amsterdam a donc lancé un programme pilote de re-localisation du lieu de travail de certains de ses salariés (25 pour commencer). La ville a fait son calcul. Au final, “nous avons réussi a sortir les déplacements de l’équation tout en faisant gagner du temps à nos employés. L’initiative de la ville d’Amsterdam n’est pas isolée.

Test Your Creativity: 5 Classic Creative Challenges Fascinated by how brains and creativity work, we frequently share new research on the 99U twitter feed, showing how everything from drinking alcohol, to taking vacations, to moving your eyes from side to side can make you more creative. What’s particularly interesting, however, is that most of these studies rely on just a small group of core creativity tests – and you don’t need any special lab equipment to take them. Below, we’ve collected five of the most commonly used creativity challenges for your self-testing pleasure. While creativity “testing” is far from an exact science, trying your mettle at these challenges could yield insight into when, where, and how you’re most creative. Or maybe it’ll just be fun. 1.

The Coworking Magazine Which is the most peaceful country in the world? Despite an increase in geopolitical tensions and an upsurge in violence in certain parts of the world, last year saw the overall level of global peacefulness remain stable, according to the latest Global Peace Index report. Four regions experienced an improvement in peace: Europe, North America, sub-Saharan Africa and Central America and the Caribbean. The remaining five regions – Asia Pacific, South America, Russia and Eurasia, South Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa – saw a deterioration. The MENA region is ranked the least peaceful in the world and saw the most significant changes compared to the previous year as violence flared across Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen. Overall, 81 countries became more peaceful while 78 countries were worse off. The Global Peace Index, issued by the Institute for Economics and Peace, ranks 162 independent states covering 99.6% of the world’s population.

Equilibre entre vie privée et vie professionnelle : Du télétravail au nomadisme digital ? Voici une vidéo de TEDx Paris (Technology Entertainment Design), particulièrement intéressante. Nicole Turbé-Suetens, animatrice du réseau Distance Expert, est une fervente partisane du télétravail à temps partiel. Car comme elle le souligne, avant de télétravailler il faut se connaitre, et lorsqu’on télétravaille, il faut se rencontrer. Le télétravail est l’avenir du travail Selon elle, tout le monde y gagnerait : - L’employeur qui aurait alors des employés beaucoup plus décontractés, mieux concentrés, plus productifs, moins absents ! - Les salariés qui auraient enfin, quelques heures de plus à consacrer à leur vie privée, enfants, familles et autres activités personnelles. - Les collectivités, les communes qui conserveraient une partie de leur population, au cours de la semaine, contribuant au développement des activités de ces communes. J’ai la chance de télétravailler très régulièrement, plusieurs jours par semaine de chez moi et même de l’étranger. Ce n’est pas pour tout le monde !

Franco-German Cultural Fund - Brand Identity on Behance [FR] LE CONCEPTNotre proposition s’articule autour de la notion d’échange croisés. L’allemagne est symbolisée par un axe horizontal, et la France par un axe vertical. Une couleur est attribuée à chacun de ces deux axes. La superposition des deux couleurs au croisement des deux axes symbolise la collaboration, le dialogue et l’échange interculturel entre la Fance et l’Allemagne.Le lien d’échange et de collaboration est renforcé par l’utilisation commune du mot «fonds». En effet, ce mot est le seul qui soit identique dans les deux langues. C’est donc légitimement qu’il a sa place au centre du logo, au centre du croisement. [EN] THE CONCEPTOur proposal is based on the notion of cross exchange.
