    Ich halte - natürlich wie es sich gehört, unter unserem Innologics-Brand - auch einen Vortrag. Thema: "Denkst Du schon?". Hoffe auf zahlreiche Teilnahme am Fr., d. 20.09.13 in der Maximilianstrasse in Augsburg...

    Respekt für die Teilnahme. So viele Worte in 6 Minuten 40 Sekunden hat es wohl noch nie bei Pecha Kucha gegeben :thumbup:

    Am 18. April 2013 besuchten die Innologen die Pecha Kucha Night in Augsburg. Prima Sache. Schade, dass in der direkten Münchner Umgebung sich noch kein Pecha Kucha etabliert hat. Die letzten Veranstaltungen fanden in 2010 statt - und waren von den Veranstaltern sozusagen "inhaltlich gefärbt". In Augsburg ist alles sehr locker und offen. Wir wollen das auch so. Wer möchte mitmachen? Wie kannst Du uns unterstützen? Unser Vorschlag ist Starnberg als Veranstaltungsort...

    Nach seinem Rekordsprung aus 39 km Höhe beklagte Felix Baumgartner gestern den Ausfall seines beheizbaren Helmvisirs. Prof. Walter vom DLR vermutete einen Wackelkontakt am Stecker. Nach dem Idealitätsprinzip wäre ein Visir ohne Energiezufuhr durch ein Kabel die beste Lösung. So könnten z.B. Solarzellen oder Peltier-Elemente integriert werden.

    Hier ein gutes Argument, unser Tool zu verwenden (von smartdraw.com):


    The Valuation of Meetings


    ROI:"Expressed usually as a percentage, return on investment is a measure of
    profitability that indicates whether or not a company is using its resources
    in an efficient manner."


    It's well documented that a considerable amount of time (our most valuable
    resource) is wasted in meetings. For most organizations, this is a hidden
    cost that is affecting the bottom line. The question is, by how much? As
    Hamlet said, "Ay, there's the rub."


    The first step in valuing a meeting is to determine what resources comprise
    the investment. Most meetings consist of three cost factors.



    1. Time spent by those participating in the meeting


    2. The facility cost (rent and utilities of the meeting space)


    3. Any incidentals (equipment rental, copies, food and beverages)


    For most organizations, the time of the participants is the largest cost
    factor for meetings. Consider the statistic that most executives spend 23
    hours a week in meetings. At a $120,000 salary level and based on a 48-week
    work year, that's a weekly meeting cost of over $1,400 per executive.


    For most enterprises, meeting cost is a relatively straightforward
    mathematical computation. In our hypothetical meeting ROI model, we will
    apply the following assumptions:



    * An executive spends an average of 23 hours per week in meetings


    * Average annual executive salary is $120,000


    * A manager spends an average of 12 hours per week in meetings


    * Average annual manager salary is $60,000


    * Our company has four executives and 16 managers regularly attending
    meetings.



    It could be argued that meeting time is more or less valuable than time
    spent in other pursuits. But for this model we assume that the value of an
    executive/management hour is the same, regardless of activity. After all, if
    it was a less valuable investment of time, then why have meetings at all?
    Conversely, if it were more valuable, then it would make sense to invest
    even more time in meetings.


    There are probably as many ways to compute the average value of attendees as
    there are meetings. For the attendees at this company's meetings, we will
    apply an average value per hour ("billing rate", if you will) of $75



    A search of the Internet for statistics on meetings reveals some alarming
    data on the inefficiency of business meetings:



    * According to a Microsoft® survey 63% of meetings are conducted
    without a prepared agenda.


    * According to an MCI Network Conferencing white paper, 9 out of 10
    people daydream during meetings.


    * The same white paper also reports that 73% bring other work to
    meetings.


    * Nearly one in ten meetings is held without the primary decision
    maker(s) even being present.


    * Executives average 23 hours per week in meetings with 7.8 hours
    identified as wasted time.


    * An article in the Fall 2006 issue of The Facilitator newsletter
    reports that 49% say unfocused/unproductive meetings are their biggest
    workplace time-waster.


    * All too often there is no accountability for results, with only one
    in five meetings having any type of follow-up.


    * A Tulsa University study estimated meeting productivity rates of 33%
    to 47% - the rest ofmeeting time is wasted.




    The average proficiency rating is 43%, meaning that 57% of the time and
    potential productivity of meetings are lost. This number is consistent with
    survey data. Presented in mathematical terms, it means that companies are
    suffering a negative ROI of 30% on their meetings.

    Die Tagung vom 9.10.12 MOC München befasst sich mit Car to Cloud Lösungen. Koennen damit Staus reduziert werden? Man konzentriert sich auf "intelligente Kommunikation" im Auto zu zentralen Servern. Koennen nicht auch Strassen "intelligent" gemacht werden?

    Eine Möglichkeit dazu sind sogenannte Osmose-Filter. Man könnte mit Leonids Idee ein neues Geschäftsmodell aufbauen. Eine mögliche Gebühr sollt dabei nicht durch Münzeinwurf, sondern z.B. durch eine RFID-Karte mit aufladbarem Guthaben oder durche eine Smartphone-App gelöst werden. Ideal wäre eine Smart-Phone App, die weitere Marketingmöglichkeiten erlaubt. Es können dann z.B. Freiguthaben zugeteilt oder verschenkt werden. Die Bezahlung erfolgt z.B. über die Mobilfunk-Rechnung.
