“There are many key skills that make up an innovative company. And these skills and behaviors I think are important for people to know… The first is strategic imagination. And what I mean by that is dreaming with purpose. There are a lot of companies that are strategic, there are a lot of companies that are creative, but there are very few that have the blend of both. So you need dreaming with purpose and we call that strategic imagination.” — Lisa Bodell, Make Room for Innovation: Key Characteristics of Innovative Companies
