is this assesstment really true? "the industry is experiencing a widening gap between coming up with ideas and having the ability to execute them"...I thought the oposite, new products are entering the market at increasongly smaller time intervals

Both could be true, Kris. I know one incessant obstacle where I work is "we have to make a business case." The perpetual reaction by the bean counters, you know, those in a company who self-identify as the "leadership," to any new ideas.
