  • Spot game changers before it’s too late.
  • Build and commit to a culture of change and growth.
  • Get your people on the same page to adapt with you.
  • Change frugally with the resources available.
  • Get rid of the eight reinvention killers (not letting go of yesterday’s breadwinners, your ego, same old same old, conventional wisdom, a sense of entitlement, greed and a short timers’ mentality).
