YOU: The i-Leader!
An i-Leader is a breeder, of ideas. His or her organisation’s job is to grow, develop, attract, and keep talent.
No enterprise can cost-cut its way to the future. The future depends on innovation.
We need to see people banding together as evangelists of innovation -- internal, cross border,or cross culture. Today’s imperative:
How do you create an open market for capital inside the organization?
”Invent” is a vital concept: It’s the creative product of the human mind. We must start with invention.
But innovation means transforming some aspect of the world. Pressure is a privilege given to us to generate ideas. It is an engine for a fresh new world.
Innovation happens when technologies come together with a market.
Sam Walton took the cash register and connected it to a database and changed the face of retailing. Suddenly, everything on his shelves went on spec, because he connected two things together.
Gaps create opportunities. When an organisation recognises the value of an hierarchy of imagination over an hierarchy of ranks, innovation is allowed to blossom.
So where are you placed? Are you reading the gaps?
Therein lies your ovation to innovation!
