Perkins School for the Blind CEO explains how companies can create 'unlimited ... - Boston Business Journal (blog)

About three months ago, Dave Power , a former partner at Fidelity Ventures and Charles River Ventures, took over as CEO and president of Watertown's Perkins School for the Blind. Power, a 61-year-old Newton resident, is a parent of a Perkins graduate and for the past eight years, he has been a trustee at the 185-year-old school (Power's oldest son was born blind and hearing-impaired). Last month, Power's book, “The Curve Ahead: Discovering the Path to Unlimited Growth," was released and he took some time to talk with me about innovation in tech and education.

Here's our conversation, which has been edited for length:

Q: How are you using your skills that you've developed in business and technology in your current role?

A: My insight has been that by understanding who you're serving today and what problem you're solving, you can be aligned around doing what you do better but also uncover opportunities for future growth. An idea as simple as that is not common practice in organizations low tech and high tech, public sector and private sector. We continue to reinvent and extend the model. And I view my challenge and opportunity at Perkins is to think about what do we do next to lay the foundation for the next 185 years. I'm encouraging everyone here to think about how we stay relevant using the same concepts that I wrote in "The Curve Ahead."

Q: Can you define what unlimited growth means and how business leaders can adapt that into their own organizations?

A: I know that's a tall order. I forget who talked me into the word "unlimited," but I'll stand by it. Here's the thing: the problem is that growth organizations stop growing. And I asked myself, "Why do promising companies stop growing?" You see many, many, many promising companies that take off an interesting idea kind of hit the wall and flatten out at $20 million to $30 million and never achieve their potential to go public, to build...

    Founded in Boston in 1829, Perkins School for the Blind was the first school of its kind in the United States.
