Related to the future of business, companies are concerned about how they can innovate in order to be prepared for the seismic shifts they will face.
Through this lens, Adam speaks from a practical perspective on topics such as how to improve strategic (business model) innovation, management (or leadership) innovation, and how successfully to leverage culture and engagement in work-life.

Generation Y Paradigms of Work and Leadership:
There has been plenty of literature and discussion on ‘how to manage Gen Ys’.
If their paradigms of work and ‘how to be led’ are indeed very different to those of their managers of earlier generations, then surely how Gen Ys will lead their organisations in the near future will look and feel new.
Therefore, the nature of work and leadership is about to change in fundamental ways.
Strategic Innovation: Disrupting Your Industry with New Business Models:
We often hear about innovation in the context of inventing new products or services.
An innovation lever of senior executives, one that can transform business success, is reinventing the business model.
While the implications of strategic innovation can be profound, the process of identifying the industry-disruptive idea that reinventing one’s business can be very simple and approachable – it’s a matter of having different and better conversations.
Management Innovation: Are Your Management Principles Fit for the 21st Century?
Over the last century, business has modernised in almost every way except for how it organises, leads, coordinates and motivates its people.
Those organisations who have innovated their act of management are celebrated as pioneers and leaders in their respective industries.
Businesses can develop a formal method for reinventing their management, just as they’ve done for products and processes for decades.
Management breakthroughs can deliver incredibly powerful competitive advantages that are more sustainable than any other creative act.
