The most successful firms in industry strike a balance between efforts to control with those that develop.  During the last economic downturn, many firms strongly shifted focus to controlling logic to ensure short term survival.   The pendulum is now beginning to shift, and market corrective forces are demanding that companies think about how they will compete beyond the 12 month cycle.  If you believe you can't squeeze any more out of your firm/department/team, or you simply want to think about, thinking differently, join us for a discussion the building blocks of an Enterprise Innovation Program and making a team of dedicated intrapreneurs.”
