Business Incubation

Run your project like a startup with our incubation program
Disruptor's Handbook - Run your project like a startup with our incubation program.
Business innovation carries with it both risk and reward. On the one hand we have no choice but to innovate – to invent, create new value, disrupt our industries and out-compete our competitors. And on the other, we are faced with cumbersome business models, organisational apathy, resistant management and disengaged employees.

Most of us understand that innovation is enormously important. It’s the only insurance against irrelevance. It’s the only guarantee of long-term customer loyalty. It’s the only strategy for out-performing a dismal economy.
— Gary Hamel

Those that champion innovation within the business can find themselves accelerating their careers and building their reputation. But the very same innovation champions can also find themselves moved sideways, out of favour, picking up the pieces of a once-successful career. All it takes is one “fast failure”.

How then are we to balance the desire to innovate while managing the hits to reputation that are part and parcel of entrepreneurial life?

IKEA Goes the Full Jon Snow

Back in 2015 I was invited to attend a secret workshop with a secret client in Denmark. Unfortunately, it was so secret, I couldn’t know who the client was. I couldn’t know where in Copenhagen I would be working. And there were no team profiles that could be shared.... read more

Technology is No Silver Bullet for Digital Leadership
