  11. 11. 11 Framing a new approach Entrepreneurs and inventors are no smarter, no more courageous, tenacious, or rebellious than the rest of us – they are simply better connected (Andres Hardadon – How breakthroughs happen – the surprising truth about how companies innovate. Harvard Business School Press 2003) Key business leaders can increase profitability through increasing connections but increased productivity maximises and then declines with increasing numbers of connections. (Hargraves Institute) The same is true for businesses Presentation title | Presenter name
