Voting Closed – Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013

Voting Open - Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013Innovation Excellence loves making innovation insights accessible for the greater good, because we truly believe that the better our organizations get at delivering value to their stakeholders the less waste of natural resources and human resources there will be.

As a result we are eternally grateful to all of you out there who take the time to create and share great innovation articles, presentations, white papers, and videos and to make a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers available each year.

Our lists from the three previous years have been tremendously popular:

Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2010 (download the PDF)
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2011 (download the PDF)
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2012 (download the PDF)

Innovation Excellence is now looking for the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013.

Do you, or does someone you know, write articles about innovation?

Or do you just have someone that you like to read that writes about innovation, or some of the important adjacencies – trends, consumer psychology, change, leadership, strategy, marketing, management, collaboration, or social media (as they relate to innovation)?

Well, Innovation Excellence is looking to recognize the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and you helped us find them with your nominations. Now it is time to vote, and help us narrow things down to a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013.

People who vote for someone will be entered into the prize drawings for a range of great prizes (we’ll add more prizes here as event organizers and others offer them up), including:

  1. Conference Tickets – events TBD (why not yours?)
  2. Two (2) one-year subscriptions to our very affordable Innovation Excellence Research offering – $300 per person per year value (each)
  3. Two (2) signed copies of the five-star book – Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire by Braden Kelley – priceless
  4. Two (2) copies of How Stella Saved the Farm by Chris Trimble and Vijay Govindarajan- $19.99 value each
  5. More prizes TBD


Build a common language of innovation on your team

The deadline for submitting votes is December 31, 2013 at midnight GMT.

The ranking will be done by me with influence from votes and nominations. The quality and quantity of contributions to Innovation Excellence by an author will be a BIG contributing factor (through the end of the voting period), so there is still time for authors and bloggers to make their first (or your best) contribution to Innovation Excellence yet. To contribute to Innovation Excellence, simply:

  1. Join the community
  2. Click on the ‘Add Content’ option in the site’s main menu and log in with the same username and password you used to create your account

You can vote in any of these four ways (and each earns points for them, so please feel free to vote all four ways):

  1. Sending us the name of the blogger by @reply on twitter to @ixchat
  2. Adding the name of the blogger to the comments below
  3. Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting on Facebook
  4. Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting in our Linkedin Group (20,500+ members)

The official Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013 and the contest winners will then be announced on Innovation Excellence on January 2, 2014.

From careers to strategic planning to customer service and more, Mike is showing everyone that innovation is an outlook as well as an action.

    Bravo Mike!
