Innovation is woven into the fabric of the American spirit and has created the entrepreneurial drive that has made the U.S. a nation of tremendous wealth and opportunity. Organizations cannot expect to survive without constant innovation and a strategy that makes it part of the culture.

Business leaders all say that they know that a good strategy is the best way to drive profitable growth and they recognize that innovation and strategy are intrinsically intertwined. But studies show that 96% of leaders say they lack the time for strategic thinking or innovation.

If it’s so important, why don’t leaders take the time? ‘Too busy’, everyone says, but since the responsibilities that leaders have today are unlikely to diminish – leaders must take the time. Global competition, constant uncertainty and the speed of change demands that your organization has a strong and flexible strategy that includes creating a culture of innovation. It is critical.
