The Key Driver of Growth, Profitability, Performance and Competitive Advantage

“If you want to succeed, you have to forge new paths and avoid borrowed ones.” – John Rockefeller

Time for Innovation

Is it possible for a leader or manager to create a new future for an organization? A big part of a leader or manager’s job is to do just that. Yet, many companies don’t invent the future. They maintain the status quo. As a result, they become casualties of the economy or worse, the competition. Inventing the future requires one to rock the boat. Only by rocking the boat can a company create highly innovative products/services or achieve significant cost-cutting measures.

Long-term corporate success is linked to the ability to innovate. Although corporate investment in improving existing products and processes does bring growth, it is new game changing breakthroughs that will launch the company into new markets, enable rapid growth, and create high return on investment.

So what separates extraordinary leaders from proponents of the status-quo? They break the rules except, not in an arbitrary or capricious way. To start, there is a declaration of what the future will be. There is also a purpose, something to stand for.  And finally, there is clearly articulated commitment. This is the programme that makes the difference.
