Leading Innovation in a Legacy Business

Check out this article from MIT Sloan Management Review:


Leading Disruption in a Legacy Business


According to the authors, driving transformation with an existing business requires strategic ambition that "provides an emotionally engaging aspiration that creates a logical bridge between the past and the future."


The key components of strategic ambition are:

  1. Defining new rules

  2. Leadership movement

  3. License to explore

  4. Hunting zones

I find this "enabling context" to be useful as I think about the future of teaching support units and the higher education sector more broadly.
