first_img continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr I’ve written before about the false promise of innovation theatre— getting caught up in activities that look like innovation, but don’t really add value.I have said that the antithesis of and antidote to innovation theatre is to define innovation as implementing new ideas that create value. This does create a bit of a paradox, though. If we only work on new ideas that we can implement, and we only implement ideas that are sure to create value, how innovative are we really?As Oren Harari said, “The electric light did not come from the continuous improvement of candles.”If we are going to do more than a few minor feature tweaks or product extensions, we are clearly going to have to break some new ground. Breaking new ground means trying some things that might not work and, in fact, some of those things might never see the light of day with customers.last_img read more

first_imgHedonism without borders – Colors, smells and tastes / #HeadOnEastCroatia The story was created last year, for the needs of holding the Day of Croatian Tourism in Slavonia, and the great news is that the event has turned into a brand concept that continues. Thus, as a continuation of the story, an introductory slogan was created, and the event was also held this year, but of course on a much smaller scale due to the epidemiological situation. New short promotional videos have now been recorded, promoting active and wine tourism and the gastronomy of Osijek-Baranja County. The whole of Slavonia, Baranja and Srijem already have something to offer and show, certainly a program filled with seven days, but first we focus and sell for three days, ie a weekend trip to Slavonia. Move your boundaries, and start selling the continent in the market. It is now “sharing cards” and positioning itself in the market, and it will be too late later. Agencies are key Hedonism without borders – active in nature / #HeadOnEastCroatia #HeadOnEast is a great slogan and concept, and it is a great pity that it did not come to life as the slogan of the whole of Slavonia. Of course, there is still a lot to do and round up, but tango always takes two. Let’s push our boundaries and move forward through synergy. How? The first step. Call the county offices of the Tourist Board and make the first contact or ask the “almighty” Google. And this time I emphasize again, without the activation of domestic travel agencies, it is difficult to initiate a more serious focus on continental and rural destinations. It was this crisis that highlighted the need for nature, new destinations without large crowds, and a focus on the continent and rural areas. Move your borders, head to the east of Croatia! – is the slogan of the Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board as part of the phenomenal #HeanOnEast concept. PS You know, the distance between Osijek and Split and Zagreb is the same in both directions. Hedonism without borders – Wine postcards / #HeadOnEastCroatialast_img read more

first_imgSEALNG, a coalition promoting the use of liquefied natural gas as a marine fuel, has been joined by the German provider of large-bore diesel and gas engines and turbomachinery MAN Diesel & Turbo.MAN’s technical expertise will augment those of existing SEALNG member OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) Wärtsilä and GTT, SEALNG said in a statement.MAN’s increased focus in the field of converting existing vessels to operate using LNG fuel is exemplified in its pivotal role in the world’s first conversion of a container ship’s propulsion system from heavy fuel oil (HFO) to LNG. The dual-fuel conversion saw the 1,036 TEU feeder container ship Wes Amelie retrofitted in August 2017 to a multi-fuel, four-stroke unit that enables dual-fuel operation.In October 2017, MAN pledged a €2M (US$2.3M) discount to convert 10 HFO engines into gas engines as part of its drive to find clean solutions for seaborne trade and transportation.Peter Keller, SEALNG chairman and executive vice president, Tote, said, “Combining expertise in infrastructure, finance, regulation, and technical areas are all essential if LNG is going to fulfill its full potential as a marine fuel today and into the future. We welcome the opportunity to leverage MAN’s in-depth knowledge of, and extensive understanding in the fields of propulsion as we continue to support the energy transition in shipping.”The addition of MAN to the coalition further strengthens SEALNG’s collaborative membership which continues to leverage knowledge, networks, and real-life examples to obtain a competitive global LNG value chain for cleaner maritime shipping.SEALNG recently voiced its support for the level of ambition outlined by the IMO’s Initial Strategy of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50 percent by 2050, compared to 2008 levels, and stressed the importance of LNG in supporting its achievement.LNG is ready now as a solution to local emissions requirements, and as a pragmatic bridge to a zero-carbon future. It far outperforms conventional marine fuels in terms of minimizing local emissions to improve air quality and can significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, SEALNG said in its statement.And in combination with efficiency measures being developed for new ships in response to the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), LNG will provide a way of meeting the IMO’s decarbonization target of a 40 percent decrease by 2030 for international shipping.The coalition believes that the decision adopted by the IMO’s Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) during its recent 72nd session underlines how essential LNG as a marine fuel is as a commercially viable bridging solution to a zero-emissions shipping industry, while enabling it to comply with the immediate regulatory demands of the IMO 2020 global sulphur cap.last_img read more
