Box two selectively forgets the past and contains projects that do not fit into the company’s vision for the future. And Box three is about creating the future by taking into considerations innovations and technological disruptions. In this episode of The Orbit Shift Podcast, Manish Tangri unpacks the Three-Box Solution. He discusses how leaders can apply this solution to their startups and established businesses so that their companies are future-proofed and protected from disruptions.
