Large-Scale Networking for Efficiency and Innovation...

Just read an article in the McKinsey Quarterly, which I can’t unfortunately link here, that some Chinese organizations (automobiles – bikes) are getting innovative and are using the concept of modularization and Toyota-like JIT assembling to make their bikes on record time and in the most efficient way possible. What is more interesting to me from the KM perspective is that they are leveraging on the power of networks across the country and the power of collaborative and cross-functional thinking to strategize and execute and deliver! – Article – Innovation Blowback by John Seely Brown and John Hagel III
