In our MUST-DO Strategies post we highlighted that to meet today’s challenges for high quality sustainable growth CEOs are focusing their strategies on Human Capital, Customer Relations and Operational Excellence.
Let’s look at the fourth strategic area – Innovation!
In business, innovation often results when ideas are applied in organizations in order to further satisfy the needs and expectations of the customers.
The 2015 strategies that CEOs are looking at:
- How to create a culture of innovation by promoting entrepreneurship and risk taking
- How to engage in strategic alliances with customers and other business partners
- How to find, engage and incentivize key talent
- How to apply new methods, products and services
- How to develop innovative skills in all employees
These strategies all point to the fundamentals of strategic CHANGE: changing the way we think, changing the way we act, and changing the way we lead those we count on to deliver the results we are seeking. If you can create an environment where people are recognized for their input, motivated to create and lead, have the right attitudes and skills and give them an engaging direction of where they need to go, CHANGE can happen.
Enhanced outcomes can include: improved company image, more efficient and effective processes and performance, reduced cost, greater accountability, enhanced strategic planning, reliable forecasting and greater goal achievement and better decision-making and greater customer satisfaction. Most of all it will enhance your competitive advantage!
