In our digital age, all companies must change how they think, how they interact with customers, partners, and suppliers, and how their business works on the inside. Customer, partner, and supplier expectations have changed, and a gap is opening between what they expect from their interaction with companies and what those companies are currently able to deliver. Companies must immediately work to close this expectation gap, or their entire business is at risk.
This success guide provides questions and frameworks for companies to use to plan and execute successful a Digital Transformation.
Unfortunately, when it comes to fostering continuous innovation, most organizational cultures stink at it, and they are not innovating fast enough to repel the unrelenting threat posed by new market entrants with declining barriers to entry.
This is why I created my latest innovation white paper in partnership with Planview to help organizations learn how to make their organization’s innovation culture stink less by:
Focusing on the basics of culture change
Building a common language of innovation
Identifying and harnessing the untapped talents, skills, and abilities of employees
Leveraging their most curious individuals to drive momentum
There is a war for innovation brewing, and building a deep innovation capability is the only way to win it. The question is, will you lead the charge onto the innovation battlefield, or will you let your competitors bring the fight to you?
As an increasing number of industries become commoditized, innovation has become an important way to distinguish your company from the competition, and a necessary investment just to maintain your existing market position.
In this thought paper, I lead the charge against the status quo. I explore how your organization can stay relevant, grow, and thrive with an innovation framework that addresses four key areas: Leadership & Structure, Processes & Tools, People & Skills, and Culture & Values.
