Innovation is Everyone’s Business
The need for continuous and sustained innovation has never been greater for businesses and organizations, regardless of size, industry or market, for profit or non-profit. Now, innovation is everyone's business due to several factors including increasingly competitive markets, increasingly diverse and demanding consumers, along with current and forecasted trends and challenges. In many cases, cost-cutting has been cut to the bone and efficiencies squeezed beyond the point of diminishing returns. Profitability and growth are increasingly challenging. Engagement and retention (or lack of) are growing and costly problems as well. And we can't just "fix" our broken selves using ways of the past and put bandages on top of band aids.
Business leaders are recognizing the need for new ways and new approaches to solving the most challenging and costly business problems. Increasingly, business leaders are recognizing that, not only is innovative thinking needed to solve their greatest business problems and accomplish their top business goals, they are realizing the need and importance of innovation as an integral part of their business strategy.
