business model the “as-is” state and what you want to or plan to build the “to-be” state. Engage at least two of
your colleagues in a discussion of these posts.
What drives innovation in your workplace? What role do you have as an individual? Does your organization
provide incentives or methods to support innovative ideas? Engage at least two of your colleagues in a
discussion of these posts.
