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!
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.
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!
