Love this, "To win in these challenging times, innovation has become your most powerful source of competitive advantage. Playing yesterday's game--even with brilliant strategy--is no match for the hurricane strength winds of creative disruption. Today, an entirely new set of skills and approaches are required to succeed. Simply put: innovation eats strategy for breakfast."

Man doesn't eat by disruption alone. Disruption is disrupting, so balance is always a good idea (not really mentioned in this post). Disruption has to COME FROM some place too. Even those who disrupt innovate on or in some space or meme.

Because the disruption feels from left field to some doesn't mean that is where the idea came from. Most disruptions were sitting on the ground staring up at whoever passed by. SEEING without the hypnotic drug of status quo thinking begins DISRUPTION. SEEING is the key then NOT rejecting the disruption, "Embracing the suck." to quote a movie I saw recently becomes critical because every muscle will cry to crawl back to the safety of the status quo.

Don't do that is our advice :). Do disrupt.

Actually, the Peter Drucker quote is, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." Of course, innovation is essential. However, innovation is a team sport, and it flows from culture. The key is to establish the kind of culture that will produce a steady stream of innovation.

Is this cheating or bending the rules

Laughter Marks a Successful Culture of Innovation | The Innovation Library | Scoop.it

America’s innovation edge has seen better days, with China now eclipsing the U.S. in areas such as patent applications, and several other countries showing signs of greater innovativeness than the U.S. What’s more, our down economy has caused many companies to tighten up operations and pull back from innovation initiatives — just when we need them the most. other countries showing signs of greater innovativeness than the U.S.

Reclaiming global competitive edge demands improved innovation throughout America’s businesses. But while stakes are high, creating a culture of innovation can and should still be fun. Building a culture of innovation is like setting small fires of positive change. Eventually they will take off throughout an organization.
