I sat down with Scott at Under the Radar to talk about trends in media. Scott is the founding principle of the Management Innovation Group in SF. Scott has a fresh view on the recent shift toward social media and its’ implications for businesses. Scott and I had a great chat. We agreed too much on things. He’s a real professional in this area of social media.
Mangement Innovation Group, MIG, is a consulting firm focused on helping companies find new ways to successfully grow and operate their businesses. To us, that means not only finding new product potentials, but also helping our clients learn new ways of managing their companies. We believe that successful innovators work simultaneously to improve their products, process, and culture.
We have learned from our clients that often the primary barrier to innovation is not a lack of ideas, but rather the organizational inertia that makes it difficult to execute them…and that this disconnect between corporate vision and project execution is very costly to the business.
A leading authority on innovation valuation and process development, Scott’s passion is helping companies realize their creative potential at all levels of the organization. His management philosophy is based on empowering people — experience he acquired during six years as a social entrepreneur designing innovative youth service programs.
Immediately prior to founding MIG, Scott launched the business strategy and valuation practice at Adaptive Path, the premier user experience consulting firm. He has helped clients in a variety of industries — including Network Associates, Blogger, PlanetOut, Hitachi Data Systems, and Dow Corning — gain a deeper understanding of their markets and technology and more successfully leverage their strategic investments.
An avid inquisitive, Scott was lead researcher and principal author of “Leveraging Business Value: How ROI Changes User Experience,” an in-depth study of how five global companies financially value their design investments, done in collaboration his alma mater, the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, from which he received his MBA. He lives in San Francisco, CA but has a vivid mental map of ancient Greece.
