Our inabilities to adapt needs changing.

Paul Hobcraft

Erosion is everywhere, it just seems inevitable, we somehow get caught up in the process of time and our organizations seem to ‘freeze’ before our eyes, then simply age. Unless we create a strategy to transform, how can we re-imagine our innovation processes?
