There were a lot of business development pivots going on. They occurred while many of us in the northern hemisphere were in “summer mode.” If you took a mental break from the social and societal chaos that occupies our attention, sucking the very lifeblood out of the business air, you are not alone.
However, it’s time to snap out of it.
Now that the kids are going back to school, we adult types need to refocus our collective energies and collaborate. Or at least try to. But where is our focus? Because when you take your eye off the business and technology ball, it changes. It moves on. Where you left that ball certainly is not where it is, now.
Business development pivots keep you moving forward, not backward. What are yours?
Which is why continuing to do business “as usual” does not work within continuously dynamic connected industrial Internet of Things environments. Prospective mindset and perspective are the keys to innovation, not retrospective dwelling in the past.
