How to Innovate when Platforms Stop Moving
How to Innovate when Platforms Stop Moving

In most management literature the new is perceived as unnecessary. The ideas that are fashionable are those you probably have not heard before. Fashionable is equated with better. New is equated with wise. We consume them even though what we really want is insight. Unfortunately that's harder to pull off than fashion.


Here are the characteristics of organisations who will succeed in this innovation-driven landscape:
  • Businesses must cultivate agility - the ability to adapt quickly to or even anticipate and lead change
  • Businesses must develop deep, differentiating capabilities that enable them both to separate themselves from competitors and endure disruptions
  • Companies such as Apple and IBM, though large, show how agility and capabilities can enable them to shape-shift as industry models change rapidly.
