Do you want your company to grow? Are you worried about its survival? Either way, look for the people and organizations on the edge of your business. Your Fringe competitors. Lost customers. Rogue employees.
In Tom Peters’ latest book, Re-imagine! he praised Wayne’s Wide Angle Vision: “I considered my `weird’ thesis to be wholly original – that is, until I stumbled across Wayne Burkan’s marvelous book… This chapter, I gleefully admit, piggybacks off Mr. Burkan’s ideas.”
Your group will be entertained, challenged and armed with specific, actionable techniques for developing new markets, delighting customers and innovating like never before. They will learn how to apply the power of the edge, gaining a sustainable competitive advantage.
“Wayne Burkan has brought our attention to a great source of potential opportunities for profitable growth if we take his advice and really listen to those challenging customers, potential customers, small competitors, and unhappy employees whom we often want to dismiss as difficult.”
Donald H. Davis, President and COO, Rockwell Int’l.
