Why CEOs Must Always Be Innovators

Thursday - 3/28/2013, 9:00pm  ET

In the video below, The Motley Fool speaks with Roger Martin, strategy expert and dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. We discuss how leaders must look at innovation within their organization. Martin believes that CEOs must lead like their company's life depends on innovation in order to stay one step ahead of the competition. He believes that investors should watch out if CEOs of companies in their portfolio aren't leading in this way. 

A transcript follows the video.

The full interview with Roger Martin can be seen here, in which we discuss a number of topics including Bill Ackman, innovation, corporate responsibility, executive compensation, and how to pick out great companies. Martin is the coauthor of Playing to Win, a new book focusing on strategy written with former Procter & Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley.
