When was the last time we did something innovative and unexpected that made our customers sit up and take notice, and made our competitors wonder why they didn’t come up with it first?

That’s the first of 5 Tough-Love questions in an article that I wrote for the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME).  If you don’t have a great answer for the first question, you’ll want to grab a copy of the article and work through this question and the other 4 provocative questions before year-end so that you can establish your innovation agenda for 2019.

And, if you want further inspiration, consider attending the AME’s Fall Conference in Chicago in 2019…  It’s all about leading edge innovation and in between the keynote speakers it’s about engaging peer-led workshops and plant tours – you’ll return chock-full of ideas!
