My services and offerings involve counseling and insight on the issues of strategy and innovation.
The term strategy is grossly overused. Strategy is not your mission, vision or values. Strategy is not your marketing campaign or your sales goals or your even approach for growth. Strategy is your defined position in your marketplace.
Authentic innovation is an uncommon, originating activity that leaps past mere iterative progression. Innovation offers something that is new enough that it requires a different set of activities. Great innovations confound your competition and are difficult to replicate.
All of my services focus primarily on pure strategy with a concentration on innovation opportunities.
