Indeed, innovativeness is all about how to disrupt the outdated thinking and the old way to do things.

No organizations can afford to stick to the old ways of doing things.

Forward-thinking companies need to keep planning and improving. Architecture contains the organizational context and is strategic in that it gives direction to the business planning and transformation.

And then, the responsibility of the management is to make a seamless alignment of planning and implementation.

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking about the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
