The Schibsted Daily: Foster Innovation Through Information
Recent history is full of stories about how large corporations fell hard after being challenged by smaller players, some of them even moving in from other fields. In an effort to not be disrupted by an outside innovator, larger companies need to make sure they are as innovative as any competitor; whether they come from inside or outside the industry. As information and transformation spread faster than ever, seeing the trends from afar and understanding what they mean is critical to driving this innovation. This case study is Finalist in the 2018 Global Media Awards: Category: Best New Corporate Innovation Initiative.

Brands need to “stand for something”. Your brand needs a voice to take a stand from time to time. Consumers want brands with a purpose other than “making a profit” (which is not to say they don’t understand you need to be profitable). Brand purpose has long been a marketing byword for the broader narrative a company builds around its products and services, what it stands for, and its vision. It forms the backbone of communication to audiences.
What is the difference between yes-but thinking and yes-and thinking, thinking in terms of threats or in terms of opportunities? We assume that most organizations are more than willing to approach problems in a yes-and manner; but we often lack the tools to do so. The “Omdenk Clinic” will help you find these tools and apply them. This humorous and lightning-quick session will demonstrate that yes-and thinking can be quite difficult (but not impossible); one way or another we’re all used to coloring inside the lines.

The tables have turned for most newspapers and reader revenue delivers the majority of revenue. On top of that, overall transparency in the digital media supply chain has been a subject of concern in advertising circles during past years; in particular with the storm surrounding Facebook (fake news) and Google (brand safety issues on YouTube). So how does all this affect the advertising side of our media business? Can news media’s latest efforts in data analytics and AI provide better brand safety environment for our advertisers and serve better advertising to our readers?

Key themes from day 2
In this closing presentation, put in perspective the latest generation of media transformation where the focus is on organisation, leadership, and communication — more so than the product itself. In the emerging media environment, going on the offensive with a narrow yet stable strategy and management may be the biggest plays. Future success, meanwhile, hinges on newsrooms: our biggest opportunity and biggest threat in a brand-dominated and data-driven world.
