This doesn’t mean innovation is dead.

Learning from the Innovation Leaders

Great Leadership By Dan

Guest post from Rowan Gibson : Not since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution has there been a greater need to learn the art of innovation leadership. Successful products, services, strategies, and business models now have a shorter shelf-life than ever before in business history, which means that “innovate or die” is not just a cute bumper sticker; it’s a brutal reality of twenty-first century competition.
