Renewing the World: Casebook for Leadership in Water

Casebook companion to Renewing the World: Water, this book presents ten water problems offering significant opportunities for innovation. The case method, based on Socratic principles and developed at Harvard, invites participants to analyze problems situationally to develop innovative solutions. Renewing the World: Casebook for Leadership in Water is one of the first books with cases on increasingly urgent problems related to climate change and water. The book takes a solution orientation, finding within failure the seeds to success.

Topics include floods and storms, droughts and wildfires, food, energy, rising seas, deep seabed mining, hydraulic fracturing, transboundary water resources, water infrastructure, and water renewal systems. Cases are relevant to fields include agriculture, business, energy, engineering, fashion, infrastructure, insurance, investment, law, manufacturing, marine environment, micro-plastics and PFAS chemicals, real estate, sanitation, satellite capabilities, science, and technology.

Cases are presented in a lively, engaging manner featuring current market leaders and emerging start-ups. Emphasis is global, with examples from every continent and region. Each case offers a Window on the Economy with financial data and a Thinking Tool Kit with the latest research. The book links to a related website with a database of leading organizations and direct access to one hundred years of water agreements, treaties, and laws.

Author K. Lusk Brooke, honored as one of the Beautiful Minds of the Millennium, developed innovative courses at Harvard and MIT, founded the Center for the Study of Success, and has written books on organizational mobilization and the role of engineering, science, and technology in shaping history.

Renewing the World: Casebook for Leadership in Water is valuable and useful for university education, business and corporate training, innovation centers, and those exploring investment.
