Flipping Orthodoxies: Overcoming Insidious Obstacles to Innovation

Monitor Group’s Bansi Nagji and I recently penned a piece for Rotman Magazine about orthodoxies, the tightly held beliefs that both direct how an organization runs—and often get in its way. It’s a super crazy long article, but hopefully worth the read. And we offer five ways for executives to think about how to flip orthodoxies:

  1. Be ruthless about finding them
  2. Ask ‘why not?’ on a regular basis
  3. Widen your field of vision
  4. Be a credible heretic
  5. Recognize those who dare

I’d love to know if any of this resonates.
