2. Backend of Innovation -

Many of the CEOs we talk to tell us that they have more growth ideas than they know what to do with. It seems like there is a universal love affair with generating ideas but less enthusiasm when it comes to figuring out which ideas are the most commercially viable and how to actually implement.

3. New Perspective -

8. Bares: EPIcenter Effort Targets ‘Scalability’ -

Innovation as investment is a simple three-step process. First, figure out the risk tolerance level at a firm. Then you can get real with your expectations, roles, resources, and metrics.

The executive support is critically important.

How do they get so lucky, and when will my luck change?
