Implementation of a Disruption Strategy

To ensure the successful implementation of a disruption strategy establish a high love quotient (LQ) culture that empowers a disruption mindset and a disruptive transformation strategy by making people feel loved and trusted. Give people freedom to fail, learn from failures and restart wiser.
