“Fostering and Promoting a Culture of Innovation throughout your Business to Drive Revenue and Growth”

“Innovation” – it’s everywhere–in print, on the airwaves, on the tips of tongues of managers, and always on the minds of CEOs. Why are some companies more innovative than others? How can we repeat our successes if we don’t know what we did right? What are the theories on how innovation occurs? Are there thinking and management principles that guide cutting edge leaders? What are the practices that embody these principles? How do we integrate these principles with systems thinking, continuous improvement, or other management philosophies? These are only a few of the questions we can ask to explore the mysteries of innovation.

To The Edge

Cheryl Perkins has no qualms about walking into a Fortune 50 company and telling the top leaders how to make big changes. Indeed, they invite her. First she listens to their story. Then she and her team from Innovationedge chart a roadmap to help steer the company down a path for breakthrough success.
