Insurance market could be among the most potentially disrupted as connecting people and devices becomes mainstream. In our last post we discussed how collaborating is a good way to deal with the challenge of insurance things in an innovative way. The same thing can be said about insurance people.
The recent partnership between Roost, a provider of home telematics, and the insurance company Erie lead us to consider the question of the many ways IoT can fundamentally impact the insurance market and the kind of collaborations needed by insurers in order to adapt to and survive this disruption.
Among the different practices shared in our Co-Session dedicated to new ways of working we included Agile applied to R&D and the personal experiences of a freelance scientist and an entrepreneur in the tech area. We also held a workshop among the participants to determine to what extent changes in these ways of working will affect their companies and sectors.
Modern technological transformations, which are so disruptive in so many contexts, will make it possible and even obligatory for us to work in different ways to how we have been doing over the last century. This is why we dedicated our last Co-Session to finding out more about these new ways of relating to each other in the workplace.
Taking a look to the close to 200 post already published in this blog, we surprise ourselves realizing how scarce mentions and examples on co-innovation with employees are. But willing to mend this lack, we decided to highlight three historic successful cases of corporations understanding how companies can benefit from the ideas of each of its employees, regardless of function, status, skills or seniority.
