The Skills Needed to Survive Change

Kodak is a prime example of a dinosaur that thrived as long as the environment stayed the same, but did not have the skills to survive change.  The resulting 30 year death spiral has negatively affected customers, communities, and thousands of people.   This comes from being more concerned with operational improvement than with business strategy; with people compliance and paternalism being more important than people and leadership development (can you think of a high profile leader who began his/her career at Kodak?) and a ‘not invented here’ culture instead of eyes-open innovation.  Are you building the skills needed to continually renew your company?
