Happy Holidays and gifts for my loyal readers!
We have covered many topics around my passion- business growth through innovation. In my presentations around the world this year, there has been one common challenge to growth- how to best target limited resources to maximize returns. The best answer to identifying opportunities for disruptive innovation has been to look beyond the past internal and even industry trends and watch the trends outside the company, its current competitors and even the industry.
Disruptive innovation is so named because it often exists quietly on the fringes of the market, deep inside customers or in another market until it is suddenly “discovered.” Mountain bikes, snowboarding, Walkman, etc. are examples of the technology curve meeting the market demand curve to produce an “overnight success”. In celebrity circles it’s a performer perfecting his or her craft for years until preparation meets opportunity and just the right role catapults them to fame.

Trusting starlight to get where they need to be…
When it seems we have lost our way,
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day! Believe….”
