What Gary Hamel Talks About:

Innovation from Everyone, Every Day
In a world filled with new, ultra-low cost competitors, ever-more powerful customers and hyper-competitive markets, innovation is the only way to out-perform the industry average. However, in many companies innovation has yet to become a deeply embedded core competence the work of every employee, every day. What companies need is a detailed blueprint for making innovation a core competence and this is exactly what Hamel provides.

Based on twenty years of ground-breaking research, and a score of high-profile assignments in some of the world's most respected companies, Hamel will show you and your colleagues how to: unlock the innovation potential of every employee; build a portfolio of high-impact, game-changing strategies; dramatically multiply the returns on innovation investment; build management systems that keep everyone focused on innovation; and manage the day-to-day tension between break-the-rules innovation and tight-fisted operational efficiency. If your company is looking for growth and competitive differentiation, this is vitally important knowledge.

A Company that Is as Nimble as Change Itself
As the pace of change accelerates, so must the pace of strategic renewal in every organization. All too often deep change is crisis-driven and episodic; too seldom is it opportunity-driven and continuous. The challenge is to build organizations that are forever inventing the future rather than defending the past. Hence, Hamel's pioneering work on strategic resilience. Hamel's ground-breaking ideas and experience can help your organization to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of strategy decay
  • Overcome the arrogance and denial that so often frustrates strategic renewal
  • Build a future-oriented vision that is compelling enough to overcome the gravitational pull of the past
  • Accelerate the shift of resources from legacy programs to future-oriented initiatives
  • Weave the principles of resilience into every management process and practice. These are essential insights if your goal is to build an organization that can change as fast as change itself.

The Ultimate Competitive Advantage
Enduring success doesn't come from great leadership, or timeless values, or a passion for customers's important as these things are. Instead, as Hamel's review of more than 100 years of industrial history has demonstrated, long-term advantage depends primarily on a company's capacity to proactively reinvent the very principles and processes of management itself. Based on his latest research, Hamel has developed a methodology that can help your company build the ultimate competitive: a capacity to proactively reinvent its management DNA. Specifically, Hamel can show your company how to:

  • Anticipate the over-the-horizon management challenges that will demand fundamentally new thinking
  • Challenge outmoded management orthodoxies that limit success
  • Uncover the new management principles that will determine industry leadership in the future
  • Build tomorrow's best management practices today

In short, Gary Hamel can show your organization how to build the ultimate competitive advantage management innovation.
