We are in the midst of a significant transformation:
#1 = Explosion of Innovation = Speed + Frequency + Convergence
#2 = Digital Disruption
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Clean Energy / Smart Grid
Internet of Things (IoT)
Mobile + Payments
#3 = Platform + Subscription Economy
And so much more - all at the same time.
So, what’s broken?
The real challenge lies within the complexities involved and the gaps between the Acceleration + Application + Adoption of Innovation.
The More Disruptive the Innovation = The More Complex the Adoption
Our "virtual" Problem Incubator is designed, structured and dedicated to helping the C-Suite and their organizations fix strategic business problems. We are tackling either new problems or existing problems in a new and unique way.
Through the Acceleration + Application + Adoption of Innovation.
As Fixers - we prototype one strategic business problem at a time - with full operational responsibility and financial accountability.
#1 - Prove which strategic business problem(s) need to be fixed - that senior executives need to and will invest in fixing - which can be fixed in part/in whole by the specific innovation that was submitted to the incubator.
#2 - Fix the problem - operationally.
#3 - Secure the return - financially.
The Buyers + Sellers + Investors of Innovation All Win In This Equation.
Blockchain is truly revolutionizing our operations - by fundamentally shrinking the complexity around what it takes for businesses to work together.
There are a # of business catalysts for why an organization should move to the cloud. There are also a number of problems that will prevent them from living there.
"8 in 10 businesses agree that their companys' view on energy is shifting from merely a cost to an opportunity to reduce risk, improve resilience, and create value." ~Deloitte
Look at any road map out there - we're on the cusp and poised to fix some of the most pressing environmental problems - through the next generation of innovation.
Our organizations are now having to move quickly to provide high quality, personalized, and affordable customer care - any kind - anytime – anywhere.
For far too long, healthcare has been handcuffed by all of their constraints and their barriers to innovation. Now is the time to breakthrough to achieve what is possible.
Now is the time to make manufacturing "smarter" - by fixing the critical problems with operational integrity + certainty - and its financial impact on the business.
Innovation as applied to the "iterative incremental improvement demanded by the marketplace and investors" is not enough. We need the big breakthroughs to fix the impossible.
Roofs - which are an operational + financial asset - are undergoing a transformation - with new innovations in their "preparation + protection + preservation + promotion."
The # of industries that are vulnerable + liable - because of their inability to spray with the precision + accuracy that is critically needed is staggering.
The key is to apply a "consumption-based" model - which requires the convergence of physical + clinical + informational + operational + financial - in real time.
As the demand for critical talent continues to outpace and outstrip the supply - organizations will have to shift...
from "competition" to "co-opetition."
With the acceleration of discontinuous innovation - the need for and the opportunity exists for leaders to work together - to solve even more critical + complex strategic and operational problems.
The Problem Connection (SM) - is an invitation-only series of meetups for CXO and VP-level executives = Entrepreneurs + Enterprise.
Goal: To learn from others re: the problem(s) we still need to fix - and to share what we have learned re: the problem(s) we have already fixed.
