Course description

Innovation For Leaders

Finding your company’s “second act” has never been more important. In the past, new products and distribution methods were adopted according to a familiar bell-shaped curve. Innovators and early adopters first, followed by a vast majority, and finally the laggards. All that has changed. The new product (and technical adoption) now looks like a Shark Fin – a few trial users and a very large steep spike of everyone else. Today’s marketplace is a series of rapid-fire Shark Fins hitting one after another. For leaders, the question is not whether to pivot, but rather how to efficiently drive a successful change of direction.
