Keynote Talk by Larry Schmitt at the Chief Innovation Officer Summit – December 2014
Strategic opportunities are big, important, game-changing – and difficult for companies to pursue. Unlike sustaining innovations that fit nicely into existing businesses plans, strategic opportunities make a company uncomfortable because they require new competencies and new business models. Companies have traditionally had a difficult time pursuing these types of opportunities.
Watch the video below to see Larry Schmitt talk about the success patterns and failure modes of how companies pursue strategic opportunities. He will discuss specific dos and don’ts for companies who wish to make the pursuit of strategic opportunities part of their long-term growth strategy.
