I spent just a bit of time in the last month listening and looking over the shoulders of some folks who were in a variety of fields that have been around for a while including retail, manufacturing, merchandising, trade associations, private equity guys and others in the mainstream or in the periphery of the industry.
Busy, earnest people who have a view of what they are doing and how they are going to accomplish…”the next thing.”
True innovators, those that think they are innovators and those who cannot stop the wheel long enough to think about what they would change if they could.
Many of them running hard but just on the edge of the shadow of the technology, idea or process that fundamentally changes the ground-rules and economics of the business they are in.
It’s going to be a heck of a 24 month period!
