Whether you’re a manufacturer, engineering company or non-profit, you need a constant supply of new ideas. This capacity to innovate is like having your own ideas factory. You can create solutions whenever you need them. With the disruption facing all organizations from the coronavirus, reinventing the way we work and think is crucial.
Most managers and executives have less control over daily decisions than they think. In fact, you likely control about 15 percent of your time. The rest of the time is taken by solving the everyday demands of running a business. You can define what matters most to your success.

  • 85 percent: Notice what you cannot control, what is beyond your direct influence? React to it and do your best.
  • 15 percent: Notice what you can control. Invest your time to make this as innovative as possible. Often small changes can have a big influence.

The Idea Factory can help you find where this 15% influence can make a real difference.The Idea Factory brings international resources & expertise to Brant led by Ed Bernacki. He relocated back after 25 years of working and living in Australia & New Zealand & working in various Asian countries. Ed is an innovation strategist, trainer, facilitator, & coach.
