It’s Complicated The customer has a very complex relationship with partners & customers globally, that varies by geography and maturity of each market. They don’t know how to rationalize and manage a change to that relationship A fear of not fully understanding their current innovation maturity, and their own agendas before launching a transformation effort. Cart, Horse Leadership does not want to engage in risk mitigation behavior that limits scope and opportunity. They want to proceed with confidence and with scope that will make a meaningful market impact on their business or want to move to other business opportunities that will. All or Nothing
