“the key to creating change fast, at low cost, is concentration not diffusion”.

I love that – another brilliant nugget from Renee Mauborgne (Blue Ocean) in responding to the resource requirement for tackling blue ocean strategies: she explains that resources are not all efficiently used or are being efficiently used on what she refers to as “cold spots” instead of “hot spots”. To accelerate change you need to figure out how to engage and involve your team WITHOUT burying them in the minutia — by doing so you rarely get where you need to get and you certainly don’t get there when you need to.
