Competitive environments are changing as never before. Many companies are being caught off guard. Playing by the old rules of the game no longer suffices because the game itself has changed.

Failure is inevitable. While firms obsess over success, they tend to forget that the far more probable outcome of their endeavour is failure. Not even the best companies are exempt from this reality – and the stakes are high. Yet, failing intelligently may be an opportunity for business.
Think about this. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Report (2016) indicates that twenty two percent (22%) of people across sixty four economies intend to start a business within the next three years. That includes everyone in your organization. Instead of them leaving and setting up independently, this milieu of entrepreneurial talent can be given space to flourish through corporate incubation.
