How Do You Encourage Innovating Thinking at Your Company?
In an article titled The Case for Stealth Innovation’, the author proposes that employees hoping to push through a great idea at their company need to develop and work on that idea ‘under cover’ until it’s complete enough to pitch to senior executives. This goes as far as developing a cover story to deceive senior executives.

This ‘stealth’ approach is troubling for a number of reasons:
  • Senior executives should encourage innovative thinking by funding projects that think outside of the box instead of making people hide their talents.

  • Not many innovative thinkers will go this far for a company that doesn’t already have their back when trying to bring innovation to the workplace.

  • Innovation is a team sport! Even if the idea gets developed enough for senior executives, it may not be in the right direction. In which case, going to the executive early on could have saved loads of time and resources.
Is innovation encouraged at your organization or are ‘stealth innovators’ lurking in every corner? It may be time to make innovative thinking a priority.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Tip - Correct/Copy Journal Entries

Here is a quick tip to easily correct posted journal entries in Microsoft Dynamics GP.  You can reverse a journal entry automatically by pulling up the Financial Transaction Entry window and clicking the Correct button.  Choose to Back Out a Journal Entry or add to Create a Correcting Entry if needed.  Select the year and enter the Journal Entry number needing correction. Click the OK button.  You will receive a reversal of the original journal entry to post, and if you chose to create a correcting entry you will then additionally receive a duplicate of your original entry for editing.
Microsoft Dynamics GP Tip - Building Trees in Management Reporter

Have Management Reporter build a tree for you by using the menu item Edit > “Insert Reporting Units from Dimensions” when in a new Reporting Tree Definition. This will save you from having to type in all the descriptions and the hierarchies will be created for you. 

Hint: You can uncheck the dimensions you don’t want included and use the Move UP or Move Down buttons to adjust the hierarchy.
