A Must Read for the Thinking Organization
In today's competitive environment, the organization that does not look ahead to tomorrow in its thinking will be looking at the tail lights of its competitors. I found this book to place in perspective the necessity to both look ahead and to do so with innovation as the objective.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Obviously, innovation, creativity and new ideas are important in business. Author Paul Sloane offers a number of techniques and practices to encourage the generation and development of new ideas. He says little startlingly new, but he offers leaders a handy, practical guide to the well-trodden paths of brainstorming, tolerance of failure and leadership by example. The most enjoyable part of the book is the long list of utterly dunderheaded quotations from experts in various fields declaring that such innovations as submarines, nuclear power, railroads and steamships are impossible. We recommend this book because it will encourage you to question your assumptions and to look for places where conventional wisdom is probably wrong ¿ there's certainly no harm, and a great deal of good, in that.Was this review helpful?
