Gary Hamel – Business Thinker

“Don’t miss the innovation boat, turn management assumptions upside down.  Change must be dramatic, deep, and transformational. Gary Hamel explains the need for radical thinking that enables every employee to be a business innovator.”

Gary Hamel also mentioned that IBM took a $14bn swing in earnings in the 1990s.  Under Lou Gartner’s leadership IBM transformed from a Product led to a Services company. Gerstner said:

“Services is clearly the largest and fastest-growing portion of the information technology industry, and we continue to extend our leadership position each quarter, … Our software business continues to gain momentum.”

IBM has a heavy focus on innovation and spends >$25bn a year on R&D.  This has had a significant positive impact on the company share price.

Warren Buffet has seen an increase in his $10.7 bn investment in IBM stock to $13.2 bn (Mar 12)
