Innovation--developing new and better products and services--is the key to surviving in today’s competitive business landscape. Author Richard Brynteson teaches business leaders to encourage their teams toward regular innovative thinking and creative collaboration that results in not only reaching goals--but exceeding expectations. Innovation at Work describes how to cultivate a sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness, utilize methods of deep observation, build networks for open source innovation, use images to spark ideas and connections, develop out-of-the-box techniques for problem solving, deal with failure productively, and spot industry trends. Plus, it teaches you to get innovative yourself--employing unique processes like “visioning” and “brainwriting” to achieve breakthroughs. The important work of innovating should not be left only to scientists and technologists. Packed with fifty-five activities, plus worksheets, questions, case studies to inspire discussion, and assessments for determining your openness to innovation, Innovation at Work will inspire you toward more creative and efficient processes and help you determine the next right step for your team.
