We must accept and embrace change. The world is moving faster than ever. Information changes hands in real time and buying habits have evolved.
"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but by on building the new,” Socrates.
What worked yesterday may not work today. You must evolve and adapt to an ever changing environment. Think Polaroid Cameras. Arguably the most success camera company of its time. Polaroid had a chance to mass market digital photography but resisted due to its success with instant pictures. They disregarded the signs of change. The market was evolving and they were not. Today Polaroid cameras basically do not exist.
Change can be hard but building a “nimble” culture can help ease the pain of change. Challenge your team and encourage forward thinking ideas that may seem crazy. 1 out of 100 may work but that “1” can change your business forever.
“People want innovation. Innovation is change. Give the people what they want,” Michael Crafton
