The secret code to growing a successful business is adjusting your strategy every single day.
Business leaders, large and small, need to learn a new game with very different rules. They must accept an ever-changing and uncertain landscape, but a landscape that can be constantly leveraged for greater profitability. They must believe that their companies are caterpillars with the potential to become butterflies.
The Caterpillar’s Edge shows why we must embrace a future of flux. It exposes the addictions that chain us to our past and the truths that influence our behaviors. And, it shows just how to seize breakthrough advantages by pushing through all the noise around “Big Data.”
Within its DNA, the caterpillar aspires and pushes for more, and it gets just that, evolving gracefully from one entity into another, always building a competitive edge in the process.
Break free from accepted archaic business practices by cracking that secret code which demands evolving your business always.
