Business Design

I have to discuss and recommend approaches to creative tension between existing management philosophies and the ability to create new business models.

The following two questions must be addressed:

* How do leaders integrate innovative principles while adhering to industry and market mandates?

* How may an organization operate and thrive in a paradigm that does not match the current model?

What exactly do the questions mean, what exactly is creative tension and how do I connect it to existing management philosophies? How should I format and structure this assignment, thanks.
