  1. 2. NIKE’s Innovation:
    Custom, custom, custom- “The sensors measure pressure created when the shoes, which happen to be on the feet of a lanky product manager named Brandon Burroughs, strike the ground.”

    This is an excellent innovation as not only is the market for track shoes, athletes and sports enthusiasts but now the average person is becoming very health conscious because of the influence of social media, television and the internet, as well as the increase in lifestyle diseases which affect close and loved ones.

    There is therefore a greater demand for comfortable, functional track shoes for exercising. Persons would be happy to wear a pair of shoes that is sensitive to their individual needs- they would be afforded best protection from injuries as the shock from movement would be absorbed with exactitude and there will be maximum protection for the user.

  2. Design Strategy for Technology ventures

    Relevance in posting
    They identified the importance of innovation and the critical success factors through which innovation works and is successful.

    What is critical?

  3. 1. Innovation of 07_Sproxil- For sticking it to anyone selling fraudulent goods.
    This innovation is commendable and relevant because with the growing competition on the global market, there is more emphasis on lower cost than health, safety and quality control standards. There are many unscrupulous businessmen who are only concerned with profits and not the health and wellness of the consumer.
    It is necessary that this be monitored in the absence of good corporate governance, transparency, accountability and reliability. Further, there are insufficient legal provisions to monitor, prevent and manage same. The number of statistics on medical negligence and the resulting deaths continue to steadily rise.
    Persons who have no choice but to purchase these drugs for use will now have a way to protect themselves from misrepresentation of the manufacturers and the resultants medical injuries and/or death as a result thereof. There will also be accurate and reliable information to use as evidence for grounds for fraudulent misrepresentation and/or medical negligence and/or negligence in a claim before the courts.

  4. As you watch and track a live match, view the cumulative statistics for a particular
    player up to that point in the match by rotating the i –
    Phone. Best of all, you can write notes even without wifi connection.
    Your toddler can tap anything in the illustration, such as a tree, and the word will pop up and
    be read out loud.
