SIX MISTAKES ORGANIZATIONS MAKE WHEN TRYING TO IMPLEMENT TRANSFORMATION AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

Dear reader,
Spring is a time of renewal and bloom. As the world is beginning to emerge from the global challenges of 2020, companies must figure out how to deal with the new threats and opportunities they are facing in what is now a very different environment. The ability to evaluate, test and scale innovative opportunities constantly and in massive quantities is turning from a SHOULD into a MUST. Organizations that acquire this skill will be able to leverage it as a competitive advantage in this new reality. In this issue, we will also be renewing ourselves. We are delighted to announce that Silicon Foundry has now joined The Funnel’s global network as our US partner. It is a great opportunity to reach a vast US readership through Silicon Foundry’s audience and get access to the knowledge and experience of its network – all to the benefit of our readers. In addition, Innovation Leader, a great publication on the topic of innovation, will now be contributing content to the magazine with fresh and fascinating perspectives. We want our readers to get access to the best and latest information on innovation management and this is another source we’ll be making available to you. And speaking of innovation leaders, this issue includes interviews with three excellent examples of such leaders. The director of intrapreneurship at Orbia, a global company of more than 20,000 employees; the Corporate Chief Innovation Officer at Elbit Systems, a company that deals with the bleeding edge of defense and homeland security; and finally the driver of an innovation-led renewal effort at Israel’s largest port. I invite you to dive into this bounty of knowledge to experience and see what you can learn from these great sources. We at The Funnel would like to wish you the best of health, and may you stay focused on your goals and get the opportunity to pursue them unencumbered in 2021.

All the best,
Ahi Gvirtsman
Chief Editor & Spyre Global Partner
