Organizations that transform themselves into agile and disruptive organizations, will see an immediate impact on their own portfolio. CEO’s must have the courage to phase out their own (successful) products before a competitor kills them. Disrupting the executive style of an organization is the vital key to become an ‘Engine of Innovation (EOI) Company’. 

Survival requires two crucial switches: a change in style and a new approach to management. It’s the only way to embraces continuous disruptive portfolio management and to fully deploy the passion & talents of employees. Without this, real agility is nearly impossible. 

In many organizations, the ‘Power Defect’ – a mismatch of competence and authority within the Executive and Management layer - makes this transition very confrontational and tough. Only if a CEO, owners and a critical mass of executives are willing to shift to a new paradigm, can real culture innovation is happen.
