The Innovation Mindset – Expert Interview #2, with Muhammad Chbib CEO Tradeling.com Co-founder Tajawal.com

As part of our research on “The Innovation Mindset of Leaders”, we conducted a series of interviews with high profile experts in the field to better understand what kind of leadership is needed for an organisation to stay ahead of the curve in today’s rapidly changing economy.

What do innovative leaders have in common? What are the organisational barriers to innovation? How do you future-proof an organisation? More importantly, why is it so hard? These are just some of the questions that sprung to mind when interviewing these thought leaders.

This week’s expert is Muhammad Chbib, CEO of Tradeling.com. There are many reasons why we selected Muhammad as a member of our expert panel. For one, he is a well seasoned entrepreneur for whom personal growth, development, and the desire to innovate are second nature. He went from being a consultant at McKinsey & Company to becoming the co-founder of Tajawal.com, a leading regional online travel agency and today, he is at the head of a technology startup with a vision to become the preferred business- to-business eMarketplace in MENA.

But there is more to it: Muhammad is also refreshingly bold. honest and pragmatic when it comes to the topic of innovation, for which he has a deep understanding. We found him enlightening, we hope you will too.

The Innovation Mindset – Expert Interview #1, with Professor Ron Jonash Chairman of the Board Global Innovation Management Institute

As part of our research on “The Innovation Mindset of Leaders”, we conducted a series of interviews with high profile experts in the field to better understand what kind of leadership is needed for an organisation to stay ahead of the curve in today’s rapidly changing economy.

What do innovative leaders have in common? What are the organisational barriers to innovation? How do you future-proof an organisation? More importantly, why is it so hard? These are just some of the questions that sprung to mind when interviewing these thought leaders.

Our first expert is Prof. Ronald Jonash, Chairman of the Board of the Global Innovation Management Institute. His years of experience advising organisations on the topic of innovation and bieng Professor of Technology Strategy and Innovation at Tufts University Graduate School of Engineering, make him a fountain of knowledge and we hope you enjoy reading his insight.

The Innovation Mindset of Leaders

The real problem isn’t a knowledge gap, it’s a mindset one

Organisation lifecycles have never been shorter and faster than they are today. According to a corporate longevity study, the average lifespan of a S&P 500 company is under 20 years, down from 60 years in the 1950s. And when looking at the list of Fortune 500 companies that existed in 1955, only 54 – just over 10% – still remain.This is caused by a mix of disruptive technologies, changing business models, burgeoning startups, intensified competition, evolving markets, shifts in world economies and several other factors. The need for change agility and continuous innovation has therefore become critical for businesses to sustain growth and remain profitable. In fact, innovation – a buzz word that is associated by many with new technology in the past – seems to be on a growing number of company and government agendas these days because it is at the crux of their future existence.
