Today I received a research study on business trends. Trend #2 was “Innovation.” They said…
“Only 50 percent of the executives surveyed believe their organizations are ‘top in class’ in innovation. This number shows that there is room for organizations to grow in their approach and position on innovation.”
That’s like saying, “Because only 50 percent of drivers are better than average, there is room for improvement.”
Of course there isn’t. You can only have 50 percent of the people being better than average. That’s what the definition of average is!
Hard to believe there can be more than 50 percent who are “top in class.” Must be one heck of a class.
