Insight

Innovation Weblog offers an excellent quote by Gary Hamel: “Today you can buy knowledge by the pound — from consultants hawking best practice, from the staff you’ve just hired from your competitor, and from all those companies that hope you will outsource everything. Yet in the age of revolution it is not knowledge that produces new wealth, but insight — insight into opportunities for discontinuous innovation. Discovery is the journey; insight is the destination. You must become your own seer.”
