The differences in cultures between large and small organizations is effectively, and often very humorously, conveyed. But Bernardi avoids facile stereotyping, and provides well researched yet personal insights on effective and ineffective organizations and leadership, of all sizes - she also effectively shows that large organizations can remain innovative, by maintaining a Culture of Disruption. She also knows whereof she speaks - an experience entrepreneur and consultant herself, Bernardi has lived and taught in the environments that she describes. No punches are pulled - Bernardi is frank in critiquing both large and small organizational behaviors, but also offers practical, actionable guidance on how to upend ineffective structures - and the hard work require to do so.
The book wraps all of these into two final chapters describing the innovation ecosystem and a call to arms on how each must change and evolve: . This clear, provocative and well-supported treatise will not only be of enormous use to players within each sector, but also for those who are, and must, interact with all of them.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned a great deal - highly recommended.
Linda understands what it takes to take your business to the next level, whether you’re a startup or an established firm in need of an infusion of passion, innovation and disruption. This book will get you motivated to get out of your comfort zone and make something happen!
Linda understands what it takes to be an entrepreneur. As stated in the book, “to be an entrepreneur means being willing to fail and to do it over and over again until somebody says “I see it. I’m willing to give you a chance.” This is powerful reinforcement to all of us who are in the midst of doing it over again and again.
I’ve had the privilege to hear Linda speak in person. She’s the real deal and her knowledge and insight is pivotal to my growing enterprise. Thanks to Linda and her Culture of Disruption!
Provoke is the bible of how we should think about technology development. As the technology industry matures it is becoming about improving stable products, marketing it in a different way. How do we steal market share from our neighbor how do we crunch the numbers in a dfferent manner. Where is the excitement around research and what amazing concepts can be created. Making dreams a reality! We have come so far so fast, why stop now! Continue to create and disrupt "the norm". There are brillient people who create because they enjoy what they can build, look at Apache, Linx, etc. Find your passion and CREATE! That is what i learned from Provoke! So inspiring!!
As an elected official having worked the last decade on public policy initiatives to re-energize innovation at all levels; ProVoke is like a fresh, crisp, chilled first breath on a Fall morning ... you know you are awake! Linda's perspective is a strong genuine value add and long over due as the right discussion starter for getting our innovation ecosystem really working again.
