Every product or service has a natural life cycle that begins with an introduction, followed by growth, maturity, and inevitably a decline as it becomes yesterday’s breadwinner. There are no exceptions.

We’re anxious to share our methods.” Many senior executives at Ford thought it all sounded too good to be true.

Jason Jennings Keynotes Microsoft’s Asia OEM Executive Summit
Jason Jennings, pictured here with Joe Williams told the Executives attending the Microsoft’s OEM Briefing and Summit that they must be prepared to let go of ‘same old-same-old,’ and, ‘the way things have always been done,’ if they want to remain innovative and at the cutting edge.
Citing Montgomery Wards inability to stave off eventual bankruptcy despite billions of dollars provided for the purpose of reinventing themselves and General Motors failure to breathe life into their failing Oldsmobile brand Jennings said, “truly great companies stand ready to let go of yesterday’s breadwinners so they can move forward to a brighter future.”
Jennings, pictured here signing books, with members of the Korean and Taiwanese delegations, was selected from scores of authors to talk about the traits and practices of the most productive companies on the planet based on content from his book Less Is More.
The Conference, held in Queensland Australia, was Microsoft’s 4th annual summit designed for executives who lead the companies responsible for more than 80% of the world’s PC production.
According to Microsoft research Jennings was the highest rated speaker at the conference achieving a 4.83 ranking out of a possible 5 for the Asian Summit.
