While the necessity to innovate raised sharply among executives, we still see so few organizations capable of innovating. We can create a long list of companies that lost the market because of the inability to innovate, Kodak, Blockbuster, Sears; the last example might be Intel vs. Nvidia on the ML chips. It would be great to discuss your experience with companies who attempted to create organizations capable of innovating.

High-end restaurant customer experience.
Connect the consumer with the food story
In our modern world, people are disengaged with the story of the food they are consuming in the restaurant. No one knows what we are eating: where it came from, how fresh is it, who grew it, what is unique about this food and who and how cooked it for us. With the end customer-focused digital technology we can bring the food story to the customer and give producers chance to be connected with the end consumers, give chefs the opportunity to take pride in their art of cooking. Food could become the conscious choice and life streaming entertainment in the restaurant. Wouldn’t you like to know what are you eating?
