The session will focus on a disciplined, methodical approach to helping business leaders grow their business with less investment and less risk by focusing on the myriad opportunities that are often hiding in plain sight, at the edge of their core business. The authors researched nearly 600 companies worldwide across 60+ industry sectors and found that only about 10% of these companies are successful at exploiting profit opportunities at the edge of their business.

About the Association for Strategic Planning Annual Conference:
Innovation is the sum of two parts. First, a pattern, not previously seen, becomes visible. Second, an application of the pattern, not previously visible, becomes seen. For our 2016 conference, Association for Strategic Planning is coming to San Francisco and diving headlong into the wellsprings of innovation. Here we will gather numerous thought leaders who have recognized the patterns and applications of organizational strategy—and who are eager to help you hatch some innovations of your own.
