If we consider strategy, the act of making a plan for how to achieve long-term goals and Innovation, the act or process of introducing new ideas, devices, or methods, the combination of these two become the art of creating the future.
In a world where things happen faster and faster, leaders become increasingly more operational in their mindsets and often do not have or spend enough time on planning the future. This operational mindset spread through the layers of leadership, and in turn means that many organizations spend increased amounts of time on “fire-fighting” and do not have sufficient focus on preparing for the future.
Having leaders at all levels, trained in how to think and work with strategy and innovation, will allow your organization to embrace the future, and by using a holistic approach to strategy and innovation, the outcome can be secured with higher quality.
