Organizations continue to support innovation efforts with everything from innovation labs to hackathons. While such efforts are well received by investment analysts, and are great fodder for senior-level strategic planning meetings and competitive chest thumping, the one thing lacking from many of these efforts is a supportive culture for actually implementing new ideas that are generated.If these efforts receive top-level support from initiation to implementation, entire organizational cultures can be transformed. An example is a hackathon I just participated in, sponsored by Intesa Sanpaolo, Italy’s leading banking company, in Bratislava. In its third year, the 24-hour Novathon included more than 20 teams working on 6 categories of new solutions.What stood out about the Intesa Sanpaolo event was the level and breadth of commitment to the process by the entire organization. Heading up the event was Maurice Lisi, Head of Multichannel and Customer Experience at Intesa Sanpaolo. He was one of many senior executives from Italy and across Europe who were very actively involved. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
Press Association Briggs levelled the scores with 20 minutes on the clock with a penalty of her own but England regained the lead just before the interval as Millar-Mills dove over the line following a powerful scrum. Mclean missed the conversion with the last kick of the half and Ireland were soon level after play resumed following the break, with Larissa Muldoon darting over from close range. Briggs hooked the attempted conversion well wide but made amends with what proved to be the winning penalty after England were penalised at the breakdown. England lost 13-0 to Wales in their first Six Nations fixture before beating Italy 39-7 at home. World Cup winners England suffered their second away defeat in the Women’s Six Nations on Friday, losing 11-8 to Ireland at Ashbourne RFC. The visitors led 8-3 at half-time thanks to a penalty from captain Katy Mclean and a try from Harriet Millar-Mills, but were pegged back in the second period and lost to a late penalty converted by Niamh Briggs. Mclean missed a long-range penalty before giving her side the lead moments later, this time making no mistake with a penalty despite the windy conditions.
