The RE:INVENTION Report: November 2013

In this month's RE:INVENTION Report, we're giving 'thanks' for the business tools that help modern companies invent new products and services and reinvent lackluster brands and business operations. In the U.S., the Thanksgiving holiday is the ultimate invitation to innovate. Enjoy our cornucopia of tasty treats.


1. While the Thanksgiving holiday is riddled with myths - a fairytale of friendly pilgrims dining with Indians - it's a perfect time to reflect on diversity. After all, diversity and dissent light a fire to innovation.

2. Turkeys aren't the only birds around this holiday: here's What Twitter Can Teach Us About Product Development.

3. This Month's Inspirational Innovator: Chicago may be the Protein Bar's "Plymouth Rock" but it's in great shape to pioneer its voyage across the United States.


• Native Americans taught the Pilgrims a lot about the New World. Human progress relies on adaptation and the advancement of good ideas. Here's how social intelligence can do that on a massive scale today.

• What have these Parking Pilgrims been up to? Check out our Expert Series featuring parking garage reservation startup Spothero.

Collaboration allows us to preserve our histories, share and learn from each other. We've come a long way since that first Turkey Day.


This month, RE:INVENTION hosted our "Driving Successful New Product/Services Launches in the Financial Services Industry" Webinar with KCD PR. We're thankful to all attendees. View the presentation.

So, what's the answer to our headline?

What did one turkey say to the other?  
Nothing. Because Turkeys can't talk.
