How We Got to Now: Looking Back to Step Forward

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with the CEO of Heitland Innovation, Jens Heitland.

During this conversation I share experiences as an employee, thought leader, pioneer in podcasting, and entrepreneur.

We discuss many subjects including key differences between exaptation and adaption and how these concepts get both confused with business transformation and innovation.

If interested, here are additional show notes from ideas I shared during our conversation.
