Why Companies Should Blow Up Best Practices

November 8, 2018

Strategy and innovation consultants Geoff Tuff and Steven Goldbach have learned one sure thing after decades of working with different companies: Relying on best practices does not guarantee future success.

Today's accelerated speed of change means that business leaders need to ditch old habits and bring a fresh perspective to their operations if they want to get to the top and stay there. Tuff is a principal at Deloitte Consulting and senior leader of the organization's innovation and applied design practices. Goldbach is a principal at Deloitte, chief strategy officer and member of its U.S. executive leadership team.

Both recently joined the Knowledge@Wharton radio show on SiriusXM to talk about their book, Detonate: Why and How Corporations Must Blow Up Best Practices (and Bring a Beginner's Mind). (Listen to the full podcast on the player below.)
