Extraordinary disruption. Wholesale market transformation. The need for innovative ideas and even reinvention. CEOs are grappling with these issues. Leaders recognize that they are operating in a new world, where boundaries are no longer defined and where innovation is vital for growth. The next three years will be more critical for their industries than the last 50. Fostering innovation was high on their list of concerns, surpassed only by meeting customer demands.There are many ways that leaders can influence their organizations’ capacity to embrace innovation. One of the most powerful is culture. Culture is nourished by human motivation—a limitless resource that can sometimes be underestimated. The most forward-leaning leaders are single-minded about creating company cultures that foster a true spirit of innovation. A CEO’s schedule is especially important to a firm’s financial success, The CEO should be focused on keeping enough financial fuel in the corporate tank. The COO should be focused on productivity. The authors stated “Most of the time it’s difficult to codify the qualities of a good manager. The CEO should function as a leader creating opportunities and not a manager solving problems.

While senior executives cite innovation as an important driver of growth, few of them explicitly lead and manage it. About one-third say that they manage innovation on an ad hoc basis when necessary. Another third manage innovation as part of the senior-leadership team’s agenda. How can something be a top priority if it isn’t an integrated part of a company’s core processes and of the leadership’s strategic agenda and—above all—behavior?

Professionally driven CEO is an asset & adds extra fuel to the engine. We have to be mindful of the fact that the CEO is the face of the organisation. He is supposed to be visionary. Ensuring the company is on strategic direction. Businesses are build not by sitting down behind the desk but by creating a network of relationships within the ecosystem in which the company operates. That can only happen by spending more time outside.
