By Margo Dumelle on October 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a comprehensive guide to assessing the strengths and weakness of organizations, and how that analysis is critical to utilizing the strengths to create innovative products and business practices. I found the case studies, of GM, Pixar, and Time Inc.'s Real Simple magazine, to be particularly valuable. Jeff DeGraff and Shawn E. Quinn present a seven point plan that is scalable to any size organization, and that can be used in part or in whole.

The fact is that innovative leaders are lurking in every organization, doing their magic by flying under the radar and need to be elevated into prominence and acceptability. The world is littered with the ghosts of companies that were incapable of change. Innovation only pays in the future, and this book is chock full of charts, exercises and checkpoints to take your company there!

With its variety of insightful cases and stories, 'Leading Innovation'

delivers on its promise of helping readers understand the tensions

within organizations that hinder growth and change. A number of useful tools are included which can be readily applied to most organizations.

As a physician and administrative leader within a major health system, DeGraff and Quinn's words are on point with the demands we face regularly as we continue to grow as an innovative health care organization.

I found this book fit well within my companies culture(Prosper) Many points from the book could and should be used to inspire employees, in every department and level, to take ownership of innovation.

Jeff has a seven-step process to help you "creativize" yourself, your teams and your organization. Many Case studies and assessments will help a company find a way to engage all of their people demonstrate ownership for innovation in all aspects of their responsibilities.

We use many of these ideas in our company currently, however it never hurts to reinforce the principles.

It was worth the money by 10 fold!
