A Monument to Team Collaboration, Forged in Steel

Team Collaboration: A Historical Case Study To help you understand the profound impact that teamwork has on innovation, one only needs to look at a key idea in the modern world: the idea of steel.

How to Recruit Innovators in the Collaboration Age

Collaboration is rapidly changing the way we work. In fact, in 2017, collaboration is the way we work. Is your company prepared to keep up? A New Way of Working As a generation raised on social media enters the work force, companies are starting to notice a shift in the way employees work. The concept of work is no longer about only what an individual can do.

How Zillable Helps Your Business With Idea Generation And Why That’s So Important [Presentation]

In this presentation, you’ll find out more about the keystones of idea generation. So often we hear that we need to “think outside the box”. But what does that really mean?

At Zillable, we believe you need to have a free, almost child-like approach to ideas and creativity. Share ideas freely, leave no stone unturned and the worth of ideas is easily apparent. That’s why [...]

Make Your Hours Online More Productive

Does the internet really make us more productive? Have you ever counted the number of hours you spend online or on your social media apps? If you're like me, you cringe when you consider the number of hours of unproductive time you spend browsing through timelines, liking photos, and retweeting celebrities. The Productivity Trap Regardless of your age or occupation, it's become an epidemic: we spend a lot of time online, but most of that time just isn't productive. The average American spends half their day using a screen, and almost 20% of that time is devoted to social media. Technology is meant [...]

Why Customer Engagement is Critical to Success

Customer engagement is critical to your company's success. When a company is first starting out, they initially attract only day-to-day, average customers. These customers use the company's products or services, but only when they need to get something done. As the company grows and gains name recognition, though, it starts to attracted engaged customers. These consumers don't just interact when it's necessary. They spend time on the website or app. On social media, they post about the company and leave positive reviews. When they talk to their friends, they recommend the products. Why?

The New Social Media is Based on Ideas

Social media isn't about ideas anymore. For example, the other day, my twelve year old nephew told me that nobody uses Facebook now. “What?” I said. “I talk to people on Facebook all the time.” He wrinkled his nose. “Yeah, like my mom.” I asked him what he and his friends use instead, and he said Instagram. That’s not surprising—Instagram has been on the rise ever since smartphones and high-quality cameras became readily available. What did surprise me, though, is the realization that social media today revolves around images, not ideas.   Social media today revolves around images, not ideas. Instagram [...]

How Collaboration Sparks Innovation

We've all seen the picture before: a brilliant inventor sits alone at his desk at two in the morning, brow furrowed, furiously scribbling away in a notebook or typing at his computer. Geniuses,  we are told, work alone. Their ideas are so advanced that other people only slow them down. Other people don't understand their creative mind. Inventions happen in empty rooms with closed doors. It's not hard to believe this cliche. After all, it's reinforced everywhere we go. Many companies eschew open floor plans for private offices. We shut out the world with headphones, noise machines, and makeshift privacy screens. [...]

Why You Should Seek Ideas from Non-Experts

When I'm having a problem at work and need ideas, I go straight to my friend Diane's office. Diane's an expert and has been in the field for years, so she knows what works and what doesn't. Diane can always help get me thinking again. Asking the experts has long been the go-to solution when we need help with a tricky problem. It makes sense--experts have the experience and knowledge to get us on the right track, so when we're stuck, we naturally turn to them first for ideas. But what if there's a better way? What if I told you that [...]

Sick of Your Day Job? It’s Time to Get Creative

Is your day job wearing you down? Do you feel like it's hard to stay creative? You're not alone--many 9-5ers are feeling that late-spring itch, too. As summer and nice weather roll around, it gets harder and harder to spend time inside working at a job you don't love, especially when your creative life is suffering as a result. To counteract that, many millenials have turned to full-time freelancing. Imagine spending your work day following your imagination, being your own boss, and taking your projects in the direction you want. It's tempting, right? Creative work should be about ideas, not red tape. But freelancing is hard, [...]
