I've been in a dozen companies that slowly died, declined or went belly up because they did not know how to find new ideas or execute them. They ignore the resources in their midst. I have ideas. Other employees have ideas. In every case, their employee base had from hundreds to thousands of years of collective experience. It's not good enough just to found new businesses on ideas. In my experience, old businesses are where the idea execution is really needed. I see no structure inside any business I have been part of for soliciting, choosing, growing and executing ideas. I see stagnation instead. We are assigned our jobs and there is no budget for the future of the business. I'm an idea person without the execution genes, and it is very frustrating to see one business after another get into severe trouble or die because they could not use my or anyone else's ideas.
