Some really interesting thoughts from Salim Ismail at Exponential Finance 2017. Innovation inside companies is killed by the “immune system,” essentially the culture, existing processes, and status quo of conforming to the corporate standards.

In order for companies to become exponential, they need to innovate at the edge, outside and away from the immune system. But how do companies and employees do this when every MBA program in the world teaches you how to build a 20th century organization? No MBA program teaches you how to build an Uber type organization. “In the future, you're either the one disrupting or you're the one being disrupted.”
