About The Invisible Advantage

The Invisible Advantage details how any organization can create a culture of innovation – an environment that promotes free thinking, an entrepreneurial spirit, and sustainable value creation at all levels and across all functions. This book isn’t just about the importance of an innovation culture, nor how to emulate the “innovation untouchables” like Google and Apple. It’s a complete tool kit that anyone can use to uncover the unique, hidden drivers of innovation and then introduce fresh, intuitive approaches tailored to their organization’s specific environment.
