Ed, everything you say makes sense, and yet, everything you hear on this thread regarding the ‘need to innovate’ to remain relevant is also true. Its called ‘Innovator’s Dilemma’.

Ultimately, it comes down to what YOU, as a business owner want. Do you want to maintain your current level of revenue, or do you want to grow?  There is no right or wrong answer here, as it only depends on your personal goals. However, depending on the answer, there ARE right or wrong ways to execute: if you are fine with flat sales – then things like incremental improvements, reduction of defects, etc are the way to go. If you want to grow – then you absolutely must take bold risks and innovate. Simply put, there is no other way. 

Just look at FX. QC issues, no direct support, as far as I am concerned (none of my emails to FX ever got answered), steep prices, and yet – there is no question about where they are headed. They Grow, and there is only one reason – they innovate like crazy. Where do you think they would be if the only thing they did over the past decade was to improve on their Gladi8or design? 🙂
