Life is a story told in hindsight: DISCUSS

Visible to anyone in the world
Innovation is a strategy only in hindsight.

In the middle of it, it's a series of tactical steps.

Some of which, in the writing of the history of the strategy, will be airbrushed out.

The March on Innovation incurs an unsustainable casualty rate if attempted by the whole organisation at the same time, advancing like an entire regiment, shoulder to shoulder to the drummer's beat.

It is much better assaulted by a small Special Forces unit, working autonomously to secure a bridgehead.
