Key takeaways

  • Stop avoiding risk by keeping busy with redundant routine. Creating value takes new mindsets and becoming comfortable with the learning journey.
  • When exploring new opportunities, focusing on customer jobs will reveal many unmet needs. Remain unattached to your new ideas until you've confirmed customer value.
  • Generating new ideas that are beyond the obvious is essential for your business to remain innovative and current.
  • Analysing how new ideas impact stakeholders and understanding why they are impacted will provide insight into the potential of an idea.
  • Your new roadmap must be accompanied by a simple and compelling vision that is understood by all employees and should be their sole focus.
  • Cost, effort and risk need to be taken into account.
  • A vision tracking organiser will help you gain full understanding of what you need to execute on and how you are going to complete it.
  • Make sure there is internal communication of your plan. Spread the word seven times.
