Predictable Unpredictability: Innovation in Society

Leadership Through Disruption
Disruptive innovation comes from people and organizations who “innovate for themselves” to make a difference for others. Leaders who operate outside of their comfort zones embracing diversity across functions, industries and cultures – developing a mind-set of continuous adaptation - are thought to be best equipped to lead disruptive innovation and are most prepared to use setbacks as springboards to success.
