Does your business have a solid strategy for competing in a resource-depleted world? Do you want to successfully navigate our troubled economic seas? The linear throwaway economy of today–where we extract resources, process them, use them barely once, and then throw them away–is coming to an end. Commodity prices are on the rise. “Blue ocean” waters are disappearing. The old economic order is running its course and a new one is emerging–one that takes our linear approach and turns it into a circle. This radical shift requires a whole new set of rules. Leaders who understand this shift and master these rules are able to turn this new reality into disruptive innovation that results in a huge competitive advantage. As they ride ahead of the wave, new products, new business models, new markets, and new profits follow. Join us as we discuss how to build your Overfished Ocean Strategy and learn the five secrets of innovation.
