This book is an analysis of business innovations. It is arranged into ten distinct types of innovations, with examples for all of them. Included is a listing of 100 different tactics used to implement the innovation. It explains which different types of innovation might be combined to create change in an industry segment. The final section of the book gives “games” or scenarios for leaders to engage in, imagining and analyzing potential targets for innovation.
In this book, the authors lay out a case for what they call “co-elevation” (this book introduces new words throughout the text).
In Silicon Valley innovation happens because of a robust and supportive “ecosystem,” a highly skilled labor pool, and an emphasis on fast growth companies. Lazarow writes about rising innovation in other parts of the world led by what he calls “Frontier Innovators.” He outlines the differences in how these innovators are approaching their work and the standard innovation success story. The book is filled with copious examples from around the world. It explains how, in a very different environment, labor, funding, strategy, and organization of entrepreneurial efforts are growing on a global scale.
In this book, Kantrowitz outlines the 5 tech giants exploring their cultures, leadership, ideas, and inventions.
How we view the people with whom we communicate is just as important as the message they deliver. In this book, Martin and Marks detail the primary attributes that we use to pass judgment on messengers. The book is filled with psychological and sociological studies which run the gamut between being predictable and quite contrarian. By learning these attributes, which are divided between hard and soft categories, the author’s premise is that we can become both better messengers and better receivers.
This book suggests that all businesses can incorporate experimentation into their product design or service delivery.
This book uses a case study approach along with research to buttress its conclusions. The main argument is that crises are God-given opportunities for growth. Most of us, rather than attempt to understand what God is doing, seek to force a task paradigm onto the situation. The author provides a framework on how to better consider and handle a crisis. Special attention paid to women in leadership and the challenges they face.
This book helps leaders understand how disruptive change occurs and does so in the context of mobility. It makes the claim that the next big social and business revolution will be in moving people from one place to another.
This book is written to help readers understand when disruptive change is coming and how to prepare for it. The primary thesis is that disruptive change gathers slowly and that those who pay attention will see the signs of it. Then, when certain conditions are met, an inflection point occurs which changes the fundamentals of the business or industry. The book relies heavily on examples and each chapter includes a “Key Takeaways” section at the end.
