Disruptive innovation adds enormous value and margins to companies. If a company can create a new industry, this growth is exponential.
Yet, few companies do it well.
Yet, within it, innovation holds its own paradoxes: regular innovation creates expectations from investors and customers. Once the rate starts falling, the company is almost penalised for it, disproportionately.
Most companies pay lip service to innovation.
By remaining young at heart, a company can make the fundamental changes required to become innovative, outside of anecdotal changes that will be short-lived and that will not lead to a high innovation index.
