What is Big Think?  

We are Big Idea Hunters…

We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload. With the sum total of human knowledge, past and present, at our fingertips, we’re faced with a crisis of attention: which ideas should we engage with, and why? Big Think is an evolving roadmap to the best thinking on the planet — the ideas that can help you think flexibly and act decisively in a multivariate world.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think

Big ideas are lenses for envisioning the future. Every article and video on bigthink.com and on our learning platforms is based on an emerging “big idea” that is significant, widely relevant, and actionable. We’re sifting the noise for the questions and insights that have the power to change all of our lives, for decades to come. For example, reverse-engineering is a big idea in that the concept is increasingly useful across multiple disciplines, from education to nanotechnology.

Themes are the seven broad umbrellas under which we organize the hundreds of big ideas that populate Big Think. They include New World Order, Earth and Beyond, 21st Century Living, Going Mental, Extreme Biology, Power and Influence, and Inventing the Future.

New Forrester research report on Indian innovation

March 14, 2007, 6:10 AM

Radjounavi In order for the Indian IT sector to make the next step in its economic development, it must embrace the broader world of business innovation. That's the thesis of a new research report from Navi Radjou of Forrester Research, who analyzes how Indian IT providers must reinvent their innovation strategies to sustain global leadership:

"Indian IT service providers recognize that their future growth is dependent on their ability to innovate. Yet their insular and operationally biased innovation agenda will prevent them from delivering what clients value most: business innovations. To sustain global competitiveness, Indian vendors must recast and upgrade their innovation competencies to drive not just delivery excellence but, more importantly, client intimacy. And to speed client time-to-value, they must network their vertically integrated innovation assets with resources available in partner ecosystems. To speed India's transition from a low-cost IT service provider to an innovation sourcing hub, Indian IT providers must upgrade their human infrastructure, and multinational vendors must finance regional ecosystem development."

In addition, Navi has written a brief report on the link between India and IBM's global innovation strategy.
