Age Of Instant Obsolescence & Staying Innovative

In this era of absolutely instant obsolescence, business needs to know what's happened in the last 10 minutes. Organizations are faced with the challenge and opportunity of the high-velocity economy. Rapid growth, collapsing product lifecycles, and the need for a focus on" time to market", all these characterize the competitive business landscape of today, around the world. I like reading this piece by Jim Caroll, where he points to high performing organizations adopting the innovation streak in a more formidable way in these changing circumstances. He finds that such winning organizations, who run faster and focus on being innovative have some common denominators amongst their processes:
• operational excellence is a major focus
• there are high expectations for growth, and an IT infrastructure that enables such growth
• they have a need for instant, need driven relationships with their partners
• they focus on rapid agility for new market demands
• they are religious on "fast time to market"
• they focus on quick marshalling of resources to accomplish velocity
• they provide for instant scalability, given market volatility and rapid change
