On NBC Discussing How Companies Can Be More Innovative (video)

philmckinney | April 6, 2012



Yesterday, I recorded two segments  for NBC’s Press:Here that will appear on Sunday, April 8th @ 9:00AM in SFO and then later on cable in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas and Washington DC..

In segment one, the questions focused on the stodginess of HP, the Palm acquisition, the cancellation of the TouchPad, webOS and the role that culture plays in innovation.

In segment two, the discussion covered what do companies like HP and Yahoo need to do to be more innovative, killer questions, the role of founder CEO’s in the innovation efforts and CEO’s that are innovation leaders.

    Great job Phil! Interesting stuff. Thanks for the mention!

      Thanks .. I wasn’t expecting the Boy Scout/Eagle Scout comment at the start of the show.

      One point of correction, Scott starts off saying “.. was an Eagle Scout”. Once your an Eagle, you are always an Eagle.

    We really miss you at HP. I really thought you were going to be that driving force webOS needed. Thanks for standing by us.

    After watching the second segment, I have to ask, did the CableLabs board give you the “Founder CEO abilities” you mentioned?

      Its never 100% when you are not the founder but the board is made up of leaders who “get innovation”.
