It's the management, stupid! Strategy guru Gary Hamel
Gary Hamel is one of those classic gurus with more words than time. He talks a mile a minute (he’s an American, so it wouldn’t be a kilometre-a-minute) and uses a lot of verbal bullet-points. But his thesis on innovation - that we all need to be doing more of it – is an important message.
And there’s so much more Kiwi businesses could be doing to unlock their innovative potential. Mr Hamel’s latest book, and the subject of this talk in Auckland on May 27, is What Matters Now? NBR’s Nathan Smith thought that was a good place to start.
