[...] In fact, managing the present is taking oxygen away from inventing the future. To prevent this from happening you need a powerful Chief Entrepreneur to focus on the future while you focus on the present.

And you need to change the way your organization is structured so it can systematically churn out new growth engines. Anything less than this is innovation theatre, and that’s just not enough.
