In the age of disruption, corporate innovation is rapidly climbing to the top of companies’ agendas. Our business landscape is now one where companies can go from being worth billions of dollars to nothing at all, or vice versa, within a few years. The ability to innovate effectively — to adapt to new trends and rapid change — can help to determine a company’s fate. Never have ideas been worth more.
