Blue Sky Thinking
When Incremental Improvements are Not Enough
Some organizations are afraid of disruptive innovation. It spooks them. And understandably so.
Disruptive innovation can be extremely challenging — replete with the unknown, the unknowable, and seemingly endless meetings no one has the time to attend.
Innovation, in these organizations, takes place on the incremental side of the equation — tweaks, cost cutting, and process improvements.
That's all well and good.
But there are other organizations who know their future depends on a purposeful effort to challenge the status quo and generate breakthrough ideas — ideas for new products, new services, and new ways of doing business.
If this describes your organization, then Blue Sky Thinking is for you.
This highly energizing, interactive, two-hour keynote not only gets the creative juices flowing, but provides senior leadership with an extraordinary variety of newly generated business-growth ideas they can evaluate, post-session.
