Blow Up

Reinvent – Change – Blowup

A software company in Durham has had to change its directions several times according to a recent story in the N&O. How many companies are willing to do that?

In a recent post: http://sinekpartners.typepad.com/refocus/ ….Simon Sinek describes how Apple scrapped the Lisa computer to focus its efforts on the graphical user interface developed by Xerox. Sinek’s post further describes how Kodak was unwilling to move into digital photography. Both Xerox and Kodak suppressed great ideals.

Businesses/organizations have to be willing to “blow up”( or change directions) a business model if another/better model comes along.

Great ideas can’t be suppressed.
