Hello incoming altMBA students! Congratulations on adding your name to the small but growing list of people who have decided to “leap” (as Seth likes to say) – to make the change you dream to make in your lives. Throughout the past month, as a member of the inaugural class of altMBA, I’ve felt extremely challenged at times, emotionally bare, getting the metaphorical crap kicked out of me by our latest prompt or challenge, and conflicted by what is comfortable and reliable (and boring and monotonous), and what is passionate and inspiring (and scary as sh*t). If I were Jack’s electric medulla oblongata, I would tell you that there are 3 real rules of altMBA, while on the altMBA site you will discover there are two core principles to the program.

Often we forget to frame what we want to really achieve in our innovation activity, instead we simply dive in and start innovating. I believe until we know what solutions we feel we need or the market wants, we will more often than not, end up disappointed in our innovation solutions. Simply generating ideas, for ideas sake, just does not cut it at all. In recent years our innovation understanding and its management have significantly changed, due to numerous factors that have been happening. These have been advances in technology, methodology or design- thinking and we do need to stop and think about how we could do ‘things’ differently by asking “what is possible?” This should be asked not just on each occasion of an innovation concept design but within the total innovation system we are presently operating under.
IBM CIO Discusses Big Blue's BYOD Strategy IBM CIO Jeanette Horan has plenty of IT projects and systems to worry about, but perhaps one of the most pressing and timely is Big Blue's ongoing BYOD (bring your own device) rollout, which is aimed at including all of the company's 440,000 employees over time. The IBM workforce is "hugely mobile," with many working at client sites, home offices and other locations outside corporate buildings, Horan said in a recent interview at IBM's office in Cambridge, Massachusetts. IBM has long had a corporate managed mobile-phone plan that historically has focused on BlackBerrys, she said. But over time, more iPhones and other devices began cropping up in the workforce, and IBM decided it was time to get in front of the issue, Horan said. "If we didn't support them, we figured they would figure out how to support [the devices] themselves," a no-no given the amount and nature of corporate information potentially at risk. HTML5 is "definitely a direction we've been focused on," Horan said.

May 08, 2012, 4:08 PM — There's a disconnect in the world of mobile computing and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies in the workplace. Only one third of CIOs say they allow employees to access corporate networks using personal devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops or other personal-technology choices, according to a survey released today by Robert Half Technology. CIOs hesitate to allow full BYOD access because they're balancing convenience and flexibility for employees with security and logistical concerns of their employers, according to conclusions in the Robert Half study. Even among companies that do allow BYOD hardware to connect to the network, only 28 percent offer full technical support. Two thirds of respondents offer limited support, while six percent offer none at all.

WhatApp’s valuation may be extreme, but huge gaps between revenues and valuation are increasingly common. Cloud-based sharing service Dropbox received venture capital funding at a valuation of $10 billion, or 40 times revenues. Airbnb.com raised funding at a valuation of $10 billion, which would make it worth nearly 20 times its revenues — and worth more than Hyatt Hotels or Wyndham Worldwide. Taxi-replacement service Uber is currently raising funding and is expected to see a valuation of $30 billion, estimated to be more than 15 times revenues.

What about when you try to explain how overwhelmed you are to your manager – or your HR department?
