How to silently kill new ideas?


New ideas can be the game changer for any organisation. However, corporate machines silently kill new ideas every day!

New ideas generally come from new perspectives. The new perspectives are the byproduct of an outsider reviewing your business. The most common outsiders are new employees without experience within your industry.
