In May, TMG announced its a new joint venture with the an award-winning firm, plan it! that specializes in conference and event planning; association management and consulting; and loyalty and engagement strategies. TMG and plan it! have been working together to enhance and expand the association management services available to new or existing Indian associations and global organizations wishing to grow the Indian market, creating Vraata. As anyone can imagine, this has been a very exciting time for both partners as we’ve had the chance to watch this concept become a reality.

The past few days I have watched a series on the History channel about some early American entrepreneurs, Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Vanderbilt. There was a quote from Jack Welch on innovation. His main point was that for a company to be successful they need to innovate and that does not mean that the company needs some big bold idea every time, but they need to continue to find better ways to deliver a product or to improve the services they already provide. This has been a topic I have had on my mind over the past few weeks and something I had brought up during a few staff meetings about team innovation. What got me started on this topic was an article on FastCompany.com by Soren Kaplan "4 Strategies For Winning Over Innovation Naysayers."
