Creamer is most passionate about building an educational/experiential platform for corporate leaders to share concepts and experiences in a collaborative environment to facilitate growth and innovation. “Open collaboration and experimentation fosters creativity and innovation,” Creamer said. “The institute’s mission is to foster the creative design and implementation of growth strategies and tactics for new business offerings utilizing uniquely creative proven processes.”

Creamer’s goal is to build and integrate these paramount business drives into the Global Advantage Institute:
• Creativity - is the process and innovation is the working solution that produces sustainable profits;
• Innovation - today is the best time to make innovation a core strategy for true sustainable market differentiation.

The Global Advantage Institute will provide its membership and attendees with year-long Executive Solution Seminars, access to research, white papers, and peer vetting in the contemporary topics impacting growth and innovation, including but not limited to the following:
• Value Creation, using the Value Paradigm®;
• Globalization – what’s your sustainable advantage?

Today’s companies—from Apple, Proctor & Gamble, Hewlett Packard, Google, General Electric to Tata Motors—are developing business models to insure they get innovation from employees everyday, said Creamer. The institute will focus on the specific processes and frameworks that can be directly employed to provide what Peter Drucker termed as the “means to exploit change.”
