Drucker on Innovation – The Time Lag

“Successful innovations exploit changes that have already happened. They exploit the time lag-in science, often twenty-five or thirty years between the change itself and its perception and acceptance.”

Peter Ferdinand Drucker. Managing in a Time of Great Change (Drucker Library) (p. 20). Kindle Edition.

 

A few minutes ago I was in the Kindle for Mac app and was reviewing text others and myself have highlighted in this book. The quote above jumped out at me.

What changes have recently occurred?

What are the opportunities that the future will present?

Something to think about.
