Future of Accelerated Innovation: Lead, Follow or Move Over

May 22, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Innovation on speed.

You’ve likely heard the adage, “Lead, follow or get out of the way.”

Leading through innovation and the need to innovate have been staples of business for centuries. Today, if you don’t seize the lead option, one of the other two will be chosen for you.

With the pace of change accelerating, and cycles of innovation compressing and often overlapping, successful companies are continually challenged just to keep up.

How are they simplifying their business to become more agile? What tools and techniques can they leverage to predict the next wave?

The experts speak.

Josh Linkner, Detroit Venture Partners and best-selling author: “Playing it safe has become the riskiest move of all.”

Colleen Speer, SAP: “It only seems impossible until it’s done.” (Nelson Mandela)

Michel Sérié, SAP: “You have to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology – not the other way around.” (Steve Jobs, 1997)
