“The broader ecosystem that we’re all a part of, which is really transforming radically, that’s much more horizontally focused and not necessarily vertically integrated, is forcing us to look outside of our traditional networks. And that’s really where we’ve got to look for inspiration and opportunities for innovation.” – Lawrence Latvala
