Sample Chapter – Charting Change

Charting Change - Sample ChapterThe world is changing all around us at an increasing rate, and individuals (and organizations too) are struggling to cope with this ever increasing pace of change. Technology is changing faster, and consumers are adopting new technologies faster than ever; consumer behaviors are shifting more quickly, and even political movements are happening with sudden swiftness. Remember the Arab Spring and how fast Egypt collapsed? Given this pace of relentless change, in my latest book Charting Change we will show you how the Change Planning Toolkit™ can help you keep pace in a more visual, collaborative way.

Sample Chapter – A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing

A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing - Sample ChapterOpen innovation and crowd sourcing are the hottest topics in strategy and management today. The concept of capturing ideas in a hub of collaboration, together with the outsourcing of tasks to a large group of people or community is a revolution that is rapidly changing our culture. A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing explains how to use the power of the internet to build and innovate in order to introduce a consumer democracy that has never existed before. If a business fails to embrace it, it is at risk of being left behind.
