In the spring, it is time to scatter as many new ideas as possible on your fields, and make sure the right combination of rain and care are there to help as-yet-unseen ideas begin to take root. Lots of freedom to make decisions exists in the spring—but no results will occur for a while, so good-quality decisions are still very important. The spring can be said to end when plants are beginning to take deeper root and appear from underground, and in the business context, this means that we move to the summer of innovation when ideas are beginning to take shape in material form—to manifest.
