ABSTRACT
The article presents three keys to serial management innovation to gain breakthroughs in a company's management processes. First, commit to a big problem as General Motors did with its organizational structure. Second, challenge management orthodoxies similar to Visa's self-organization and Toyota's unique process innovation. Third, exploit the power of analogy by looking for alternative solutions from unconventional organizations. These steps, the article notes, also helped General Electric and Procter & Gamble attain their comparative advantage.
