Do you fear the cutting edge?

“There are two kinds of organisations – one kind that likes to be on the cutting edge, to do what hasn’t been done before, to embrace the new. The other kind fears that, and holds back to let someone else to go first. Betting on change is always the safest bet available.”
from The Big Moo, edited by Seth Godin

I would like to add:

  • The cutting edge does not necessarily mean the bleeding edge.
  • The cutting edge is always relative to what everyone else is doing.
  • Being on the cutting edge for the sake of being there misses the point.

Which type is your organisation?
