Instead of paying lots of money to go to a seminar on Innovation and Leadership, I suggest buying this book. Its accessible language, clear points, and in-depth content is not only better than what you’d get at a seminar: it is cheaper as well.
This book is about a lot more than innovation’s dirty little secret. In it Larry Osborne discusses innovation: what it is and what it isn’t; leadership: what pitfalls to avoid, and how to recognize and promote innovation; and organizations (specifically boards): how their policies and attitudes can make or break innovative initiatives.
If you’re looking for a biblically-based model for leadership and innovation, this is not the book for you. But if you are looking for something that is relevant to today’s business world (and worldviews) this book is a treasure trove of information and counsel that will help your church, organization or business grow by using innovation (and innovators) wisely. While it is important to know innovation’s dirty little secret, this book will not only tell you what it is, it will also give you the tools needed to overcome this little-talked-about obstacle. Want to know what innovation’s dirty little secret is? Buy this book.
