IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Getting employees to actually submit ideas into innovation management software may be an issue for some enterprises. But for others, idea overload is the real issue. Kindling, a SaaS innovation management vendor, learned that executives at two of its major corporate clients stopped using Kindling because they were overloaded with ideas. Kindling is trying to change that by introducing a new feature: an idea recommendation engine. klint finley Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Although innovation management has been around for years, pioneered by companies like Imaginatik, interest has accelerated recently. We recently identified three key trends in idea management, but the are continues to, well, innovate.Kindling’s recommendation engine starts off with a short questionnaire aimed at determining users’ interests – it’s similar to the ones presented when you start using Netflix or Hunch. Users can opt to answer only a few questions or continue to answer many questions. Users can display the reason a particular idea was suggested and downgrade certain selection criteria to improve Kindling’s recommendations. Although the recommendation engine’s utility remains unproven, Kindling product manager Tim Meaney is optimistic that this transparency and feedback mechanism will help make it very smart very quick.Other new features include a redesigned backend and support for user groups.Existing features for organizing ideas include the ability to list ideas by popularity, votes, number of comments, the “Ideas I’m Watching” section that allows users to follow the comments and activity on particular ideas, and a highly configurable e-mail notification system.Kindling can act as a stand alone solution or integrate with Microsoft‘s Outlook and SharePoint. Users can export ideas to Excel, or use the application’s API to export ideas in a variety of ways. “We don’t feel entitled to your data,” Meaney says, “If you decide to leave Kindling at any time, you can bring your data with you – we won’t keep any of it.”Kindling was spun out of the New York City based consulting firm Arc90. The product was released in 2009 (see our coverage) and has landed several big-name clients like The Motley Fool, Symantec and Medtronics.

Sahara Group on Saturday defended its decision to snap sponsorship ties with the BCCI and withdraw from the IPL, saying the relationship between the two has become so strained that it could not be possible to continue any longer.”The decision we took to end ties was not a bad one at all. We had enough of it. Any relationship does not break on one single issue only. We had a long relationship. It has to do with many issues and has happened continuously,” Sahara Group chief Subroto Roy told a press conference in Mumbai.”There were so many genuine things we had but they (BCCI) did not give heed to such a small thing like opening the bid. They did not open the bid (when Sahara had submitted its bid for the first time). Rules were broken for other teams but we were not given natural justice,” he said.Roy said Sahara had approached the BCCI to settle the issues through arbitration and it had even proposed an arbitrator but the Cricket Board was not interested.”We even approached the BCCI for arbitration and even proposed the name of the arbitrator,” said Roy.He said considering the number of matches reduced from the originally-proposed 94, Pune Warriors paid 25 per cent more money to the Cricket Board for owning the franchisee.”It was 94 matches calculation, the gate money to collection of advertisement money would have been 25 per cent more. We have paid 25 per cent more. Differential amount is 25 per cent of the total amount,” he said.Roy said he would not want to blame anybody but he was snapping ties with the BCCI and pulling out Pune Warriors from the IPL as it involved emotional issues.”Again without blaming anybody, I thought it would give us lot of happiness. It involved emotional issues. Let us put all this money in sports development in villages.”advertisement
It’s just past the first hour on the opening day of the second Test in Nottingham as I write this and the West Indies are already in deep trouble, having lost four top-order batsmen. It would be fair to say that they are pretty much on the back-foot already. Would Chris Gayle have made a difference?This is a rhetorical question, of course, but worth asking nonetheless. Perhaps Gayle too may not have survived long on a seaming track on which England’s formidable pace attack is always likely to revel, but from a cricket follower’s perspective what is pertinent is that the best player is available.Surely, neither Kirk Edwards nor Adrian Barath, promising young batsmen as they are, quite measure up to Gayle’s class or experience. The brawny left- hander, who was a sensation this IPL season too, has two Test triple centuries to his credit and has spent a decade and more at the international level.That should matter a heck of a lot to a team that is trying to rediscover some of the chutzpah and exhilarating skills that made the Caribbean style of cricket so endearing. Gayle’s presence would have forced England to rework their strategies, perhaps even put some fear in their ranks – apart, of course, from improving the calibre of his own team.It must seem ridiculous that Gayle, who is currently in England, is not with the West Indies team playing against England! Add Dwayne Bravo and Sunil Narine, and you have three players who could strengthen the current West Indies team enormously.advertisementThere is no guarantee that England could have been beaten in the first Test, or before that the Australians in a home series. But scores and performances of the past few months suggest that the West Indies did several things right, but lacked that little class and experience than can make a winning difference.If only wishes were horses… The issue, of course, is not as simple or as easily resolved as getting a few players into the side. West Indies cricket has been awash with complexities arising out of disputes related to player and authority, as also inter-island power-play for almost two decades now. At its worst, this led to revolt, at other times to rancour-driven indiscipline.Whatever the causes, the effect is that West Indies cricket has suffered. A lack of vision and planning in the 1970s and 80s led to a dearth in talent in the early 1990s when greats like Viv Richards, Gordon Greenidge, Malcolm Marshall etc retired. With England ceasing to be an attraction for young West Indians to go to for jobs and the United States as the new El Dorado, cricket too gave way to other sporting pursuits for the generation that grew up then.All this is too well documented to bear repetition here. What is pertinent is that after a dismal two decades, the opportunity exists for West Indies cricket to revive itself from its moribund state. This can only happen if players and administrators – along with the game’s minders at large – are on the same page.The game’s bigger than ever before, and the clamour for the Caribbean brand of cricket keeps growing. In a sense, the IPL and other leagues have sparked off fresh demand for West Indies cricketers, and the players themselves stand to benefit because the prospects of livelihood are enhanced.The flip side to this is that the West Indies cricket can be torn asunder if the players and administrators don’t find common cause, as seems to be the case now. If the administration is indifferent to the needs and sensitivities of the players, and the players see only moolah as the reason for them to play, West Indies cricket may not regain its pristine power or prestige.It beats understanding that the conflict between Gayle and West Indies cricket should fester so long. If it is only about some radio interview he gave, a mediator who is both clever and compassionate should be able to broker a truce pronto.There is also the issue of recognising and nurturing talent. It also beats understanding that Narine is not only overlooked for international matches but is not given a central contract which would keep him in the fold either. If Kolkata Knight Riders’ talent scouts can cough up $ 700,000 for him, surely he is worth something.There are complexities beyond just player-administrator conflict of course. These have to do with how and where the modern game is headed. Without proper windows for leagues like the IPL, the temptation for players from financially weak boards will always be great.advertisementHow that is going to be addressed is not known, but for the present if players like Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Narine can be seen in the maroon West Indies cap, it will be a big step forward.(The writer is a seasoned journalist)
