You may be wondering what an author of a book subtitled "Know When to Quit Your Day Job" would have to tell CEOs. But in truth, it is the book's main title that you need to focus on, Startup Opportunities. My co-author, Brad Feld, the investor behind Techstars, Fitbit and Makerbot and I have collectively seen more than 20,000 startup opportunities pitched for investment. That's more than 10 times the number of deals that have appeared on America’s hit show Shark Tank. Just like the founders that pitch us, Brad and I are constantly in the process of opportunity evaluation.

In researching design thinking for a decade, one interesting outcome is the counter-intuitive observation that upper management may offer less hindrance to innovation than mid-level management and peer groups.  The “easy” reason large organizations often lose their edge, after all, is that the C-suite is too centered on command and control to allow innovators to try, and potentially fail.

What if I told you that 60% of all strategic breakthroughs are lost? Conservative estimates suggest that people in upper management spend as much as 50% of their day in meetings, and nationally there are upwards of 25 million meetings every day in the U.S. But for all the action items, to-do’s, and game changing ideas, remarkably little innovation actually occurs.
