We live in interesting times. Competition is global, change is constant and innovation is the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Helping your business achieve its strategic goals
Innovation means different things to different people, but most executives will tell you that it’s among their top three corporate priorities. What’s harder to find are companies that are successful at both innovation strategy and execution.
As far back as 1990, in a Harvard Business Review article entitled "The Core Competence of the Corporation", authors C.K. Prahalad and Gary Hamel proposed that leadership depends on being able to do something that others either cannot do at all or find difficult to do, even poorly. It depends on core competencies that blend market or customer value with a special ability of the company.
Organizational core competencies may vary, but thought leaders, including management guru Peter Drucker believe that innovation is the one core competency that all successful organizations share.
The secret to innovation success is not the amount of money an organization throws at it, but the people, processes and supporting infrastructure it commits to making innovation a core competency, to transforming it from an ad hoc affair into a disciplined, repeatable process.
Ultimately, innovation differentiates corporate success stories from those that are relegated to the footnotes of history.
Big Picture Innovation (BPI) specializes in helping its global clientele transform innovation into a core competency that drives sustainable competitive advantage.
