When most people see the cloud, innovators see the silver lining. In a global business scenario that has been clouded by economic instability and intense competition, thinking out of the box is not an option; it is a necessity. Innovative ideas are the key to business leadership but the key is only effective in the hands of corporate magnates willing to take risks and challenge the status quo. Effective Business Management is akin to the sands of time: it is unstoppable and invaluable. Businesses that can blend innovation & disruption while persistently pursuing the silver lining are inevitably the suitors for the pedestals of glory and that is what drives the role of ignited thoughts in leading change.
