- Identify, create, and dominate new markets
- Avoid the pitfalls of commodization and find new ways to grow
- Develop and sustain new sources of growth into the future

You'll learn how to anticipate customer demands and meet emerging needs before anyone else does. You'll discover how to spot ideas ready for explosive growth, and how to lead new markets while your competitors are just waking up tothe opportunity.
