Yes, to make major difference from others, you need to go for disruptive technology. This will give lead for few years and this product can have good profitability. Another aspect is to find out who has money and who will pay for it. This will also help improve sales.
It is possible to identify potential visionary in early days of school. Through feedback from teachers, it may be possible. Second step is to provide them with environment and tools so the blossom to the fullest. Big oraganizartions like IBM, MS, Apple and other should support this program.
@Hm, I understand the point you're making. Catch them young.I am aware of mentoring programmes. Never heard of special courses on "young visionaries". Perhaps we need to advocate for one. Lol... Now to answer your question the drive, the Will and Vision can be encouraged. What's your thoughts?
@ Anna. I feel with the present state of the economy everywhere now,electronics that must sell must really look in to slash in the selling price because people will rather prefer to keep the money for a top priority than to spend it on a liability except if ti going to be generating money other than entertaiment
@_hm. vision is something deeper than that, its an inside thing and only little of it can be taught.It is better taken advantage of by looking in-ward seeing the future and coming out with product relevant to the future.
Steve jobs had a vision,it might be from much studying,thinking, observations or hearing, noticed a problem and decided to do something about it and through this generate a vision(solution) and that is how it comes most times
Does any US university offers some special course to produce potential visionary like Steve Job and others? It may be nice excercise for University and organization to inculcate this skill in youth and young graduates. In current situation, senior level managers are very poor in knowldge of most kind and they decide product future and features. We need to get young visionary.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
