Abstract: The need for change and innovation are often talked about like they are ‘a good idea’, or somehow optional. History shows that companies that fail to innovate or evolve with the changing times will soon cease to exist or exist in the same form. This presentation will explore the history of Lockheed Martin and other cases, to show this and serve as a ‘call to action’ to transform how we do business and drive us to innovate.
