Is the question “what about…” the killer of innovation? Entrepreneur Scott Anthony thinks it is. He says that “resource-rich companies have the “luxury” of researching and researching problems” and that stops progress being made. Is this something you are guilty of when researching an new factual programme idea (especially if it’s a subject you know little about)? The trick is to do enough research (and recognize when you have done enough) to get the proposal written and flesh out the pitch and then commit to it. More research can – and should – be done once a channel has committed to it.
