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.

Rather than talk in hypothetical, lets dive behind the curtain and see how this has come together.  As a refresher: Core attributes are those attributes the organization holds which form the foundation on which its perform work and conduct itself.  Done well, they are empowering to an organization.
