“We are entering a new era of innovation. The pace of change is accelerating. And in the midst of this change, stability seems sensible—but sameness is not a winning strategy. In our fast-moving economy, businesses and governments that stick with what’s worked in the past will be left in the past.”

Feb. 20, 2019 - By: Jean Case

Dec. 27, 2018 - By: D. Scot Hunsaker
“A recent Wall Street Journal/Vistage poll showed that half of all business owners say that they have a succession plan, but only 25 percent have actually put pen to paper and written it down.
