HACKING CORPORATE INNOVATION
Let’s play a little word-association game.

If I say Sony, what do you say? If you’re a teenager, your response is probably Playstation. But if you’re from my generation, the first word likely to pop into your brain is Walkman.

Ah, remember the glorious Walkman? Back in the 1980s, that chunky box clipped to the waistband of your acid-washed jeans was a more powerful status symbol than a pair of Air Jordans. Owning a Walkman — and later, it’s sleeker cousin, the Discman — meant you were so cool, so urban, so hip. You were such a music devotee that you couldn’t bear to be separated from your tunes for even a moment. Because it was the era of conspicuous consumption, a knockoff wouldn’t do. It had to be a Sony.
YOU SHOULD READ THESE - WE DID!
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Exactly"…is what I said after every chapter. This book put words in my mouth, literally. After reading part one, I was armed with a clear point of view of the friction between operations and innovation. The demand for creative and innovative solutions with policies, systems and culture of the past is an impossible feat, or so it seemed. But after reading the rest of the book, I truly did see a path forward. I could try the activities and how to guides in real-life work situations and oh my…I got others saying “exactly" too.
