Two Components of Sustainable Growth Strategy

Sustainable business growth strategy is a practical approach to achieving top-line growth and bottom-line results. The two main sources of sustainable competitive advantage are:

  • Continuous Improvement Culture: continuous effort to improve organizational climate and productivity of the core business in response to continuous changes in the marketplace.

  • Durable Corporate Venture Strategy: internal investment in innovation and new product/service development, new business creation, and external venture investing in new technologies and emerging markets.

Improvement Strategies versus Venture Strategies

  • Improving Processes: Addressing the ever-changing needs of current customers and keeping cash flow healthy. Cost-cutting efforts can build your bottom line.

  • Radical Innovation: It is radical innovation and new game changing breakthroughs that will launch your company into new markets, make you a market leader, enable rapid growth, and create high return on investment.

Continuous Change as a Norm

Companies, like any living organism, must become learning organizations that change and adapt to suit their changing environment. “If you don't practice the change management that looks after the future, the future will not look after you,” says Bill Gates. "The tendency for successful companies to fail to innovate is just that: a tendency. If you're too focused on your current business, it's hard to look ahead.“

Two Types of Change in the Marketplace

1. Organic, or continuous, change
2. Radical, or discontinuous, change driven by radical innovation

What is Radical Innovation?

Long-term corporate success linked to the ability to innovate. Although corporate investment in improvements to existing products and processes does bring growth, it is new game changing breakthroughs that will launch company into new markets, enable rapid growth, and create high return on investment.

Radical innovation, concerned with exploration of new technology, is fundamentally different from incremental innovation that is concerned with exploitation of existing technology. Radical innovation is a product, process, or service with either unprecedented performance features or familiar features that offer potential for significant improvements in performance and cost. It creates such a dramatic change in processes, products, or services that they transform existing markets or industries, or create new ones.

Fuzzy Front End

The early stage of the radical innovation process is ripe with opportunity, but it is also devoid of many definitive facts. Due to its high degree of ambiguity, this development phase has become known as "the fuzzy front end."

New Management Approaches

New competencies are required to address the challenge of radical innovation project management. High levels of uncertainties - technical, market, organizational, and resources - create extraordinary challenges for project management. The problem of multiple dimensions of uncertainty is complicated by the fact that the uncertainties interact with one another. “For radical projects to mature, uncertainty must be reduced on all four dimensions. At the same time, if you try to eliminate all uncertainty and control every risk, you'll find yourself frozen in place, never doing anything new.” (Christopher Meyer)

There is practical value in understanding the patterns in and the differences between evolutionary incremental innovation projects and revolutionary radical innovation projects. This understanding can help you apply right management practices to different types of innovation projects and make the course of radical innovation shorter, less sporadic, less expensive, and less uncertain.
