28 Mar Are you an Extreme Innovator? [Quiz]
Innovation is hot. The word itself is said 8.2 times a second! But it is important because it means business. There is nothing more disruptive today than the customer.
But how do you innovate your sales in the business to maximize sales?
Answer: Extreme Innovation
Why is Extreme Innovation so important?
93% of companies depend on innovation to grow.
John Chambers of Cisco said 1/3 of businesses today won’t survive the next 10 years.
Eighty-one percent of CEOs say their teams are not equipped to meet the innovation opportunities needed to compete in today’s marketplace.
Half of the S&P 500 companies will be replaced in the next ten years.
The lifespan of these companies is in steep decline: their lifespan on the S&P 500 used to be 33 years – now it is only 14.
Innovation is the job of sales. Sales is in the front line. Marketing is the shaper of the conversation. Sales and customer service are points where the conversation takes place. When you ask the customer, “Who makes the brand real for you?” they will say sales or customer service.
So, how do you become an Extreme Innovator?
