innovation in its purest form – The Man Behind The Flaming Hot Brand | Mercado Del Sur

….just read this and you should too.  My takeaways are:

  • innovation does NOT need to come from the top down
  • an “open-door” policy and process must be enabled at all levels to stop artificial barriers from inhibiting ground-floor innovators
  • the CEO “owns” making innovation a culture so they determine how to make it easy for any employee to get their attention

GREAT story…
