One of my favorite Caribbean quotes is, “Aim for the sky, so if you fall, you will fall on coconut trees, but if you aim for coconut trees, you will fall on the ground!”
I help clients develop a solid innovation management program that will enable their employees to develop the skills necessary to think like intrapreneurs. These skills ultimately lead to the core, adjacent, and transformational ideas that can sustainably impact the organization.
