Franchising is lagging behind the innovation curve, anchored in legacy systems, long-term agreements and the belief that past success will continue.  The research clearly indicates that franchising must embrace innovation and this workshop will provide attendees with a proven model to identify the gaps in planning, determine the type of innovation needed, and layout a path forward.  Start your year off by getting an innovation strategy plan in place.
