Challenges of Innovation

Tom Peters author and business guru bluntly said: “I worry what will happen to the American psyche should the nation be knocked off the economic catbird seat. But, I believe American business is capable of competing if companies are willing to continually reinvent themselves. … The only way we're going to survive is to innovate our way out of the box."


Peter Drucker once said that “Innovation is the only competitive advantage a company really has, because quality improvements and price reductions can be replicated, as can technology. Therefore, if a company could have just one major capability, it should be innovation.”
