Impressed overall with how these companies didn't let corporate killers like inertia and bureaucracy prevent them turning ideas into action. I'm partial to the companies that went mobile in a big way by developing mobile apps (Dallas Cowboys, Salvation Army, Mitsubishi) or replacing paper products and old hardware with smartphones and tablets (Procter & Gamble, Dish).

I'll certainly post my comment, but I'm not about to click through 22 dang slides to dig through this.

Click bait fail. You lose.

Congrats to Ketchum on their IdeaShop idea - sounds like a cool use of collaborative brainstorming.

BIDMC has consistently been a leader in health IT, and OpenNotes is no exception. OpenNotes keeps patients engaged in their healthcare and educated about their health, possibly resulting in better outcomes. CIO John Halamka is a true innovator there.

Re: Arizona State:

"The creation of eAdvisor had a direct impact on the freshman retention
rate. Retention rates from 2008-2012 increased by 1.7% year over year.
However, retention rates in the year after eAdvisor's launch increased
by 6.8%."

That is seriously impressive. I'd be interested in knowing what other factors may be involved, but any university that improves retention that much that quickly deserves praise.

UPS will probably write the book on telematics analysis. But this company also gets the people part of the customer relationship right. I know a very senior IT person who was won over by UPS on a business level because she was impressed by them as a consumer: Her neighborhood driver leaves a dog biscuit on top of all packages left at her door. Talk about thinking like a customer. I am betting there is not a biscuit metric but I bet the biscuits go a long way.
