Endless Innovation: Innovation trends
that I see coming to the forefront in 2010 -- real-time marketing, augmented reality, new mega-content companies to replace mainstream media companies, and interesting cultural trends like the re-invention of bank branding in the aftermath of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Until last week, it was easy to think of iPhone apps more as a distribution channel, less as a full-fledged business that deep-pocketed venture capitalists would attempt to bring to market. After all, for any Fortune 500 company, the current revenue stream from iPhone apps would most likely amount to little more than a rounding error. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Insurance industry relents on HIV
New policies are reflecting the fact that people with the virus are living longer. Chiara Cavaglieri and Julian Knight report Insurers may not put it in their marketing literature, but it is an industry which is based on discrimination. In car, life and home insurance, providers discriminate between good and bad risk and price products accordingly. However, the industry can take time to notice when the goal posts have moved. Take the position of those living with HIV; they have been routinely turned down for cover despite the march of retroviral drugs and treatments. But there are signs that the industry is waking up to the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Did Anything Happen to the Moral/Ethical Compass during the Recent ...
The recent economic downturn or the plunge impacted many dimensions of our thought processes in the business world. Layoffs were a common feature. Some reduced wages to avoid layoffs. Yet others diverted into different lines of business successfully or not. Some chose to hibernate; lying low to let the tide pass over. Some of the ingenious ones even took up an overall re-engineering to make a complete turnaround in the way they do business because it could not hurt more any way. What intrigues my mind is, do we know what happened to the morality part of the business leaders during this crises? Were ethics put on the altar? Did ...
