Systemic Innovation: 7 Areas






Take a month off and just go away. When you come back, act as if you were just assigned to the business. Just come in brand new, hold all the reviews, and start slicing everything in a different way.

You need to continuously manage your business model and continuously generate innovative business models. On the one hand you need to improve the business models that make substantial money and on the other hand you need to build and maintain a portfolio of new business models for the future. Some will evolve from the second group into the first. Some will fail. You need that kind of failure to build future growth. If you donít have that attitude you will end up like the major competitors in the music or news industry. You will be threatened to disappear.
