Episode details


Tendayi Viki is a corporate innovation expert who helps companies innovate for the future while managing their core business. He is an associate partner at Strategyzer. And he is author of a new book called Pirates in the Navy: How Innovators Lead Transformation. There are so many takeaways for this conversation. Here are just a few. 

  • You must decide: Do I want to be a pirate in the navy? Self-awareness is key

  • Escape innovation theater

  • The product of innovation is the process not the product

  • It’s not innovation unless it creates a new business model and repeatable value creation

  • The question is not, can you do it? The question is, can you do it again (and faster and/or better)? 

Just so you know…I have decided. I am an intrepreneur, and I have decided to be a pirate in the navy.
