Innovation is the missing piece to customer loyalty.
Business agility is the ability to change direction quickly when necessary. We will look at how you can develop business agility and your business.
Innovation and strategy are two separate things that are often used together. Innovation focuses on products, and on existing markets.
The necessary process for Innovation
Strategy creates a structure for the long-term future.
Strategy development focuses on anticipating the future and leading the market, while innovation development focuses on creating new products and new markets.
In a world of more-is-more, both processes are less agile than an innovation process. Innovations disrupt the current market structure.
Disruptive innovations require new business models. Every company needs a different approach to innovating and developing strategies.
Ingredients for Innovative Business The solution that matters
Sometimes it's easy to get wrapped up in the idea that a product should do everything for everyone. But that's not how it works. In reality, customers want to complete a job.
For example, maybe a parent wants to get a job done by purchasing a car seat. They're looking to protect their child by making sure they're in a car seat. They're not buying it to help their child fit in with the "cool" kids at school.
They're not buying it because the speaker system is better than any other brand. They're buying it to do a job. Products hold value by helping people get jobs done.
Be ready to take the chance
Open and focus means being flexible and adaptable.
You need to learn to think outside the box and break out of your comfort zone. It's hard to think outside of your comfort zone, but if you wish to be successful you NEED to do so. You need to learn to be flexible and move past your comfort zone.
Change is something everyone must deal with but you must figure out how to adapt quickly and effectively. If you're not able to, then you'll become irrelevant in these fast-moving times.
This is a very important skill for CEOs because if you're not willing to change or adapt to new circumstances, you won't succeed.
Tacking the invisible ready
The best way to take full advantage of the process improvements that companies pursue is to tackle the invisible before the visible.
Don't solve the problems that are directly in front of you.
Figure out the hidden factors, find out how they work, what they're doing and what they're doing to the functionality of your processes and technology applications. Only then will you be able to change the factors that matter–and make sure that when your customers (internal or external) say they're dealing with “your process,” it makes them happy.
Let the experts take charge
Micromanagement turns life upside down for great employees. In fact, sometimes micromanagement is a way for leaders to cover up for their own insecurities.
While you may be a CEO, it is important to know when to let go of control over your business. Not only will this free up your time, but it will also show your team that you trust their abilities to get the job done.
When you take a step back, you will be able to see the bigger picture and make decisions with a clearer head.
However, that doesn't mean that you should let go of all control. You still have to know when to step in, but it is important to know what you are good at and what you aren't good at to make sure you have the right people in charge.
Momentum is the lifeblood of a business.
Re-evaluate your business process and goal every two weeks. Realize that you're going to achieve way more by carving off the bottom-ranking ideas and putting a laser focus on the top.
Ever heard of the 80/20 principle? It's a mindset that says 20% of your activities will lead to 80% of your results. That's exactly what you need to focus on when it comes to your business.
When it comes to making decisions, you need to make sure that you're doing what is best for your team! It's important to stay on top of your company's goals and objectives. Knowing what you need to do to reach those goals helps you make decisions that are in the best interest of your company.
That said, it's also important to remain aware of your team members and keep them in mind when making decisions. It's easy to focus on the big picture and forget about the individuals that you work with on a daily basis, but doing so can create conflict and resentment.
