Corporations need to change and innovate quickly and aggressively to stay competitive in today’s environment.  Major disruptors are changing the rules of the game on a daily basis.  Traditional customer models are being dis-intermediated, and core businesses are coming under threat.  “Change and innovation” is the new steady state – and the speed of change is critical to a corporation’s competitiveness.
