Orchestrating the future (1)

My thesis here is that, starting from a certain company size, harmonizing and integrating innovation, as well as medium- and long-term strategic issues, with daily operations in the short term is a problem that requires special attention.

What is the definition of strategy?

Suggested that a strategy be 35 words to ensure understanding across the organisation, there appears to be confusion. Dr. Pete Compo, author of the upcoming book "The Emergent Approach"™ to Strategy, reviewed over 70 definitions from many sources.

Innovation is change (& 2)

We finished the first part of this article listing some models of change management: Michael Doyle, John P. Kotter and Managed Change Model of LaMarsh Global. We continue with a brief description of these and a summary of the practical methodology used for the implementation. We work in three layers or simultaneous levels. The three begin with where the change begins: the "identification" or "discovery" of the very need of change. Education and communication are critical throughout all the process.…
Fundaments to change

Innovation is change (1)

Innovation is a change. Like any change, requires effort, generates resistance and needs vision and leadership. To innovate, change is required in the culture, in the organization, in the strategy and in the way of working. Crisis and recession are also engines for change generation. They are not only providing threats but also opportunities. In many cases, it's necessary to think and act counter current. Remove elements of pessimism, but keep being realistic and almost objective to evaluate the new facts and…

8 views on innovation and agile innovation

This article features eight views or faces on innovation and agile innovation. Innovation is a very used word and in many areas. Everyone seems to agree that it must be encouraged and that all companies and organizations should focus their strategy on innovation, especially SMEs and new companies.
