Innovation in the Year of the Dog
By Disruptors Handbook • Issue #85 • View online
We are nearly two months into the calendar year of 2018 and the Lunar Year of the Dog may well be an appropriate description of the most innovative companies and strategies of the year so far. The companies that most want to please their potential clients are those who are focused most on innovation. And they are not just digging around their own backyard, so to speak. They are keen to consider new ways of doing business, new markets and new product opportunities. 
Last week, CIO Magazine introduced the idea of transformational leadership as one which encourages innovation. We tend to agree that a company culture that facilitates autonomy and independent thinking can indeed, lead to innovation in the workplace.  But we also believe that digging around outside the company is also vital to identifying new opportunities. 
Time - or the lack of it - may be blamed for failing to look outside the scope of one’s business. But it’s not really an excuse. Find a context where you can get to look at what’s going on, just beyond the scope of your work, and you may find your business can become that much more reliable.
