In today’s world, “If you’re not Meaningfully Unique you better be cheaper.” And Meaningful Uniqueness is far more profitable. Two separate Georgia Tech studies (2008 & 2010) found that companies who focus on innovation make twice as much money as those focused on low cost. And, employees are paid 60% more as well!
American Workers, Managers and Business Owners need real hope for the future. Innovation gives us that hope. In the past Innovation was slow and risky. Today, there is a system that increases innovation speed while decreasing risk. It’s called the Innovation Engineering Management System. It’s a new way of thinking based on a set of tools and principles developed and refined through 25 years of real world experimentation. Previously, this system was only available to the big companies - Nike, Hewlett Packard, Walt Disney, Procter & Gamble, Schlumberger and Ford. Now thanks to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s NIST/MEP Network it’s available to all companies.
The world is changing and you need to be changing faster than the marketplace if
you want to stay ahead. For America to have real hope for meaningful growth - we
need leaders who are willing and able to lead innovation. Leaders with demanding
objectives and goals for company growth. Leaders with the energy to lead change
through a commitment to systemic and sustained change.
