There are so many little things that corporate leaders ignore. Just take a look at the following industries and you can see many blind spots. Some examples of old truths that are still unchallenged to date are:

·  In the retail banking industry, the idea still holds there can be no fun and enjoyable experience while inside a retail bank.
·  In the supermarket industry, shoppers have no choice except to use carts.
·  For the bicycle industry, the saddle is still a one piece thing, as it is modeled after a horse saddle.
·  For men’s clothing, pants’ back pockets intended to hold wallets continue to be the norm even when they cause discomfort when sitting.
·  In the mobile phone industry, many value-added services (VAS) continue to be incorporated when over 90% of existing VAS are not being used.
·  For the HR practitioner, putting an age limit of 35 years old for salesmen when the more productive salespeople have greater connections and networks after age 35.
·  In Philippine airports, queuing is still needed after check-in just to pay for terminal fees.
·  In Congress, more and more proposed laws are churned out.

We can go on and on but the point is opportunities for innovation are everywhere. Blind spots happen due to lack of insight or new truths. This can be corrected when we increase our awareness, network with people with different backgrounds, and ask questions regularly that challenge conventional wisdom. Read more
