Futuristic Sustainable Transportation

Take a look at some futuristic sustainable transportation designs that caught my eye. Forces which can affect futuristic transportation options will be financial, technological, sustainability, and of course ethical(safety). Financially, futuristic vehicles must be environmentally efficient, safe, and affordable. We know fossil fuels are not getting any cheaper. For these new vehicles to be adopted by the masses, they have got to be affordable; thats where technologically efficient efforts during the manufacturing process must be realized.

Innovative ideas

Ever wonder how to innovate in a group environment? There are a few techniques i'll discuss here which may assist in business and educational environment decision making. The Delphi and Nominal Group Technique(NGT) are the most common types of group decision methods. Both are considered consensus methods and offer a structured and transparent method for reaching decisions. The Delphi method's objective is to gather a consensus of opinions, and attitudes about a selected topic from a panel of experts. The Delphi Method helps keep groups on task by structuring the information flow. I prefer the NGT method as a group decision-making model. First of all, NGT works well with groups of all sizes. That is important to me as I often work in many different size groups. One of the most attractive attributes of the NGT method is everyone in the group has a voice and will have their opinions heard. This differs from the traditional group voting method where only the majority decision taken. My preference is the the Nominal Group Technique to use in a collaborative environment to explore my innovative ideas. The different live experiences and skills available in a group atmosphere where all have a voice seems to be an environment in which I prefer to create and innovate.
