"Effective prototyping," he declares, "may be the most valuable 'core competence' an innovative organization can hope to have."Schrage observes that there are "spec-driven organizations" and "prototype-driven organizations."

In 1964, when the U.S. surgeon general's office published the famed report that officially confirmed the link between smoking and cancer, nearly half of American adults smoked. To understand just how smoky life was back then, watch any episode of Mad Men, the TV series set on Madison Avenue in the early 1960s. Without a second thought, almost every character lights up regularly, at the office, at home, in restaurants, bars, cars, even at the dinner table in front of the kids. Happily, those days are over.

DETROIT - Facing its worst financial outlook in more than a decade, General Motors outlined a new product development and sales strategy this week, saying that from now on Chevrolet and Cadillac would be the company's only brands to offer a full lineup of vehicles. That means GM's other six brands in the United States will focus on a narrower selection of segments. GMC and Hummer will continue to sell trucks while Pontiac, Saab and Saturn will focus mostly on cars and smaller SUVs, with Buick offering some of both.
