I hadn’t come across this before – Project Red Stripe is a skunkworks project from the Economist which aims to produce something really innovative in six months, with only six people and £110k of company money. Interesting, the project is being conducted on the public web. Here is the initial briefing presentation which set out the aims and parameters of the project, and here is the blog which has charted it’s progress since September last year. There’s even a web cam showing live pictures from the project office.
One thought on “Project Red Stripe”
We’re about to publish a book about it. Called Inside Project Red Stripe, it’s published conventionally (www.triarchypress.com) and, over the next few months, online (projectredstripe.blogspot.com). It’s an account of the six-month project and we think it’s a good guide to innovation and teamwork in business and the media.
