Innovative Oversight of Business Competency
Businesses across industries face fierce competitions and ever-changing marketing dynamic, they have to build unique competencies that differentiate themselves from competitors. Differentiation is an effect accomplished by having a sustainable competitive advantage to the market. Cosmetic differences or the differences which can be easily copied or surpassed by competitors should not be the essence of a strategy.

Complexity has multifaceted touch points and varying angles you can see through it.

Unconventionalism Every individual is a unique human being; the world we live in is complex and diversified, we are born to experience the world; and everyone is entitled to their interpretation of the world. One valid assessment of that interpretation is what individual life it creates for the person who holds it. Does that perception of the world enable the person to be positive, healthy, balanced, and a productive contributor in contemporary society? Or does it make one unable to adapt, and embrace the variety of viewpoints? How to make people become more open-minded, innovative and influential? How can we push towards the next stage of evolution that enables the large collective of people in our societies to think in a more advanced way; communicate empathetically, unleash collective potential and work harmoniously to achieve common vision?

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.
