#44 Innovation and Corporate Explorers. With Andrew Binns
Show Notes

Today’s podcast is about innovation, the innovation that can and should come from within a corporation.

Yes, Contrary to popular beliefs, large corporations are better off than startups at winning the innovation game, or so says my guest, Andrew Binns.

Andrew is the co-author of the best-selling book, The corporate explorer, and a strategic advisor to Fortune 500 companies.

Listening to this interview, you will learn there is a breed of managers, that are the corporate explorers, who have the vision and the courage to challenge the status quo, and bring the disruptive change large corporations need to keep striving, and sometimes surviving.

They are as innovative and effective as the startup entrepreneurs the press love to portray as the queens and kings of innovation, and they are also different.

Corporate explorers must disrupts business models, while harmonizing ideas and resources.

They must pursue new opportunities, while making sure the existing business, and the people running it, don’t feel threatened.

It’s not an easy job, but someone must do it, and that person may be you.
