Psssst…hey you. Yes, the one reading how New & Improved helps achieve growth through innovation. I hope you don’t really want this innovation thing.

I've watched the number of innovation consultants explode recently because Senior Leaders have been reading a stupid thing called “research.” Supposedly, creative collaboration and the ability to sustainably produce innovation is the only long term path to success. I’m telling you that’s crazythink! I’d prefer stuff like this be ignored in favor of more immediate needs. Like – where is my next meal? The one thing that gives me a little hope is inexperienced consulting firms - designed to look hip, sexy and cool - but frequently doing more harm than good.

And they’re on top of the research about what works and doesn’t. I hate that!
