Few events are so predictable as the eventual change of a CEO.  

The word “innovation” often has an intimidating and mystical air to it.  

Yet, when one is freed from the idea that they have to come up with entirely brand new ideas from scratch, the possibility to innovate becomes much more accessible and actionable.
