Innovation can be an uphill battle. Forget about “building the best mousetrap” – often people like to stick with what they already know instead of trying something new.
Take the basket. When this Oklahoma-based 1930s innovation hit the aisles, shoppers weren’t sure what to do with it. In fact, when presented by the grocer Sylvan goldman as an alternative, many shoppers skipped the shopping cart, choosing to overload their hand baskets.
Eventually, the shopping cart was so underutilized that Goldman hired actors to circulate the shopping carts around the store, modeling the technology for customers. Buyers have finally gotten the hang of the new tool and that’s why you have to thank Goldman for your overloaded shopping cart.
Just a reminder that change isn’t always easy, and leading by example can have an incredible impact.
Now, ready to shop for new opportunities?
