    TEI 006: Studies In Organizational and Open Innovation – with Karla Phlypo, PhD

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you another episode of The Everyday Innovator.


    The podcast is all about helping people involved in developing and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.


    Our Guest:  Karla Phlypo is an avid dreamer, builder, artist, and scholar. She holds a Ph.D. combining research in social innovation, knowledge management, and decision science. Her background is in automotive product engineering. Although she has many interests, the common thread is contributing to a culture of sharing and innovation through collaboration.


    Highlights from the discussion include:



    Karla studied how people participate in innovation environments (open, crowdsourcing, and collaborative communities)
    Key contributors needed in innovation environments are solution providers that tend to be quiet (may not offer ideas until asked to do so), non-political, and boundary-less with a systems view
    Organizational innovation is improved by knowledge managers who aid the flow of knowledge in an organization and identification of best practices
    “Hardy perennials” are not flowers, but problems that keep showing up in product efforts that need to be pruned
    Idea management systems that collect suggestions for employees can destroy trust when they don’t understand how their ideas are used – they can be counter-productive when not managed properly

    Special Guest, Musician - Aris

    in LGBT

    "I am hard at work on my 3rd full length album "Pulse", and uplifting journey of love and life. I'm making an album that will touch you and inspire you and resonate with all your emotions. The album is a mixture of dance, rock, soul and world sounds... tribal beats, soaring hooks, entrancing guitars, lush strings and bubbling synths .  I want this album to be a soundtrack for the passions of your life. I also hope for "Pulse" to feature several notable guests vocalists - amazing powerhouse vocalists who have touched your hearts and made your bodies move on the dance floor. 


    I've started recorded basic tracks for the album, and I will utilize this crowd-sourcing campaign to finish the instrumentation on these recordings, and give them extra layers of dimension with live string arrangements and supporting vocals. This is my second time as executive producer on an album, and based on the success and critical acclaim of my last release "Twilight Revival", I am certain I can deliver my best material ever.  With your help, we can bring this music to the world!


    I was raised by a single mom who always taught me to dream big. She herself had toured in the 1960's and 1970's as a belly dancer. She taught herself how to dance, how to sew, and sewed all her own costumes. She taught me how to be brave. She taught me how to love. She taught me that love could change the world... that it could move mountains!


    This new album "Pulse" is all about love. Falling in love, Loving yourself, Loving Life, and I can't wait to share it with you all!" - from Aris.
