New technologies continue to emerge at an ever-more rapid pace and globalization brings with it new markets, new customers, nontraditional competitors, and new challenges. As a result of these forces, companies find that their strategies need almost constant redefinition.

This describes the framework for managing a business's responsibility to take action in three time horizons at once: executing the present core business at peak efficiency (Box 1); taking steps to avoid the inhibiting traps of past success (Box 2); and inventing a future built on breakthrough ideas (Box 3).

Dr. Vijay Govindarajan (VG) is the Coxe Distinguished Professor at Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. He is widely regarded as one of the world's leading experts on strategy and innovation. He is also a New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author. His most recent best-seller is Three Box Solution.

VG was named by Thinkers 50 as a Top 3 Management Thinker in the world and received the Breakthrough Innovation Award in 2011.
