About this product
- DescriptionTurn team members into invators Most organizations approach invation as if it were a sideline activity. Every so often employees are sent to Brainstorm Island : an off-site replete with trendy lectures, creative workshops, and overenthusiastic facilitators. But once they return, it's back to business as usual. Invation experts Paddy Miller and Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg suggest a better approach. They recommend that leaders at all levels become invation architects, creating an ecosystem in which people engage in key invation behaviors as part of their daily work. In short, this book is about getting to a state of invation as usual, where regular employees--in jobs like finance, marketing, sales, or operations--make invation happen in a way that's both systemic and sustainable. Instead of organizing brainstorming sessions, idea jams, and off-sites that rarely result in success, leaders should guide their people in what the authors call the 5 + 1 keystone behaviors of invation: focus, connect, tweak, select, stealthstorm, (and the + 1) persist: * Focus beats freedom: Direct people to look only for ideas that matter to the business * Insight comes from the outside: Urge people to connect to new worlds * First ideas are flawed: Challenge people to tweak and reframe their initial ideas * Most ideas are bad ideas: Guide people to select the best ideas and discard the rest * Stealthstorming rules: Help people navigate the politics of invation * Creativity is a choice: Motivate everyone to persist in the five keystone behaviors Using examples from a wide range of companies such as Pfizer, Index Ventures, Lonza, Go Travel, Prehype, DSM, and others, Invation as Usual lights the way toward embedding creativity in the DNA of the workplace. So cancel that off-site. Instead, read Invation as Usual--and put invation at the core of your business.
