Creating businesses is the challenge of the day for large organizations. After years of cost-cutting and downsizing, companies have realized they can’t shrink their way to success. In a world where what’s possible is advancing at breakneck speeds, social behavior, technology and global economy are driving forces for change. Established brands have realized they can’t […]
The Social Network of Things is here! In a complex landscape of old and new, cars and networks are being built to be self-aware, adaptable and communicative with one another and humans in real time. We live in extraordinary times where there is transformative experience with three kinds of cars — some fully automated, others with […]
Disruptive innovation is not about technology Systems that are innovative at one time can become the “good enough” systems we need to overcome as they age and calcify. While it’s inspiring to see new systems render old ones obsolete, this prescription of change creates a future where decisions about our collective future will be commercial […]
Humans are not inspired to act on reason alone. Using conventional rhetoric — which, in the business world, usually consists of a PowerPoint presentation where you say, “Here is our company’s biggest challenge, and here’s what we need to do to prosper,” building your case through statistics, facts and quotes from authorities — doesn’t connect with […]

You hear from your consumers once when they pay for insurance, and the next time you hear from them is when something […]
To sell an idea to stakeholders, buyers and users, we not only have to change what they think but how they think.
