20 Ideas for 2009 from the HBR

The Harvard Business Review, or HBR as some like to call it just redid its website. It is much easier to navigate now and I’ve ran across one segment that I want to highlight. It is called Breakthrough Ideas of 2009.

Here is the list of 20 ideas:

Just Because I’m nice, Don’t Assume I’m Dumb
Beware Global Cooling
Institutional Memory Goes Digital
Stumbling to a Longer Life
The Rise of Forensic Economics
State Capitalism Makes a Comeback
Now’s the Time to Invest in Africa
Consumer Safety for Consumer Credit
The Ikea Factor: When Labor leads to Love
Launching a Better Brain
A Central Nervous System for the Earth
A Looming American Diaspora
Harnessing Social Pressure
Western Union World
How Social Networks Network Best
Should You Outsource Your Brain
The Dynamics of Personal Influence
Forget Citibank, Borrow from Bob
The Business of Biomimicry
What you Need to Know about the Semantic Web

Many opportunities await.  I particularly like Launching a Better Brain because it reminds us that having fun learning stimulates the brain to develop new neurons and pathways.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
