Strategic Insight

What do innovative organizations do that others don’t do? What is it that makes innovative organizations tick? How do they grow in down markets? How do they thrive through disruptive innovation?

Business Week recently named Jim Carroll as one of four leading sources for insight on innovation and creativity. That’s why, if you have a unique business, market, sales team, customer or other type of key strategic issue that you need to address — you’ve come to the right place!

Jim has well over twenty years of experience in studying what makes companies relentlessly creative, and how they ride critical trends in order to achieve success. He combines this deep experiential insight with over a decade of prior experience as a consultant, professional accountant and business advisor with Ernst & Young, and KPMG.

Based on his deep insight, he prepares unique, highly customized presentations or workshops that speak directly to your needs, within the broad themes of innovation, creativity, trends and change.
