Operations, Strategy, Innovation and Technology in Small Business
I recently had an opportunity to interview with Todd Schnick at the Incubator about how small businesses can leverage operations, strategy and innovation techniques along with technology to gain strategic advantage.
from the original post
Some discussion topics included:
1. Do you have to have entrepreneurial DNA to succeed as a small business owner?
2. What most small businesses do wrong when it comes to operations.
3. Most small business owners lack strategic thinking. Why, and how, is this so important?
4. Why building a strong foundation is so mission critical to small business owners?
5. You can’t be innovative without process and regimented business practices – the importance of process.
6. How does a small business innovate?
7. What role does technology play in all of this? Is technology the answer to all the problems?
8. What’s next for small businesses? Dark times ahead? Or dawning of an amazing new age filled with possibilities?
