Barbee meaningfully broadens the understanding of innovation so it is within our grasp. There are very practical, relevant and real nuggets of advice in this book. What the reader will realize is that this is how Barbee practiced his profession in business. I know because I worked with him at PriceWaterhouseCoopers(PwC). I am still learning from his practice of always putting his clients at the center of every project. In my opinion, these nuggets are as useful for Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller start up companies. --Thomas O Neill, former Chairman of PriceWaterhouseCoopers(PwC) Consulting and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of all PwC Global Services; senior Director on Boards of several Fortune 500 public and smaller companies; industry expertise financial services
From the Inside Flap
Barbee broadens the concept of innovation from the historically narrow view around new products emanating just from R&D. Instead, today's innovation emanates from a diverse array of individuals across a wide range of functional areas including finance, technology, manufacturing, marketing, engineering, and sales. His innovative global leadership stretches
across consumer products, entrepreneurial financial services, and global professional services.
Barbee's experiences have convinced him that most of us have an innovative spark that can be ignited. Being innovative is personally rewarding and can add great value to any organization. Innovation is all around us and using these nuggets can help improve observation skills, transfer skills, and many other skills.
The analogy of panning for gold nuggets is intriguing. Pioneering prospectors collect and sort through individual pieces. At first, an individual nugget may appear to have minimal value, but it is the total collection that results in the greatest wealth.

It hits the key notes and should get the juices flowing...I am thinking to give
some copies, as a thanksgiving present, to my coaches and investors who helped along the way. I know the author and
he is the real deal. Enjoy.
