Interview with Michael Hammer on Change Management

June 2007 - By Dr. Nagendra V Chowdary

The major reason so few companies undertake operational innovation is that senior leaders are not familiar with operations and they do not recognize the strategic potential of innovation in the area of operations. As more companies establish leadership positions through operational innovation, I expect that more companies will become active in the area.
