The leading edge of strategy is maximising competitive advantage through innovation.
This means taking a radical approach to strategy. It is about revolutionising how you better meet your customers need with greater efficiency. Digital, mobile, social offers huge opportunities never before seen to reinvent products and services, or their delivery, creating value for customers.
This means: challenging current thinking; developing depth of insight and ‘big game’ perspective; interpreting market dynamics; encouraging creativity; identifying new capabilities; creating innovation opportunities; systematically analysing, planning and testing; fine-tuning; stretching objectives; and managing risk.
How are you injecting creative thinking into strategy to create and drive innovation for competitive advantage?
Effective strategy involves joining all the dots in context, between: market dynamics, client need, new technologies, business capability & resources to create a new business model to deliver a unique and powerful value proposition.
Incrementalism means commercial suicide! Innovation is not continuous improvement. It is not setting the next level of best practice. There is an army of entrepreneurs trying to build and fund revolutionary business models designed to put major players out of business. They are bright, talented, energetic and resourceful. They are small, nimble, well-funded and without legacy! Their number has never been greater. Many of them have been trained by the major players.
