Thinking Externally

From emerging technologies trendspotters to R&D outfits, there is no one model for organizing around innovation. But there is one aspect in common among even the most sophisticated efforts: the recognition that the answers aren’t always in the room. Building externally aware teams and enterprises that can take advantage of new technologies and market opportunities is a skill unto itself, and is as much about a way of thinking as a way of working. At The Weather Company’s WeatherFX division, General Manager Vikram Somaya is building a business with these ideas at its heart.

This presentation was made at NYC Media Lab's Research Summit 2013 on September 19, 2013 at the Joseph Urban Theater at Hearst Tower. The Summit was a half-day deep dive into the Lab, featuring presentations and discussion on technologies and trends that are changing the industry. Corporate members also unveiled the results of NYC Media Lab's first round of seed research projects.
