Innovation consultant Dennis (senior contributor, Forbes; Remarkable Retail) provides insights into what leaders should boldly do to dramatically transform a business in today’s testy market environment. He forthrightly explains why a complete metamorphosis of typical leadership mindsets is crucial to prevent a business from becoming forgotten. His steps include crushing one’s own ego, waking up with intention, being distinctive and not just big, thinking radically, taking a mind leap, and moving from slow and cautious to the speed of innovation. Throughout this title, he uses examples of well-known companies that exemplify his more aggressive approach to long-term survival. His strong ideas and principles may challenge more traditional leaders; his strategy presents significant risks, but many business-minded readers will agree that sometimes that is exactly what’s needed to accelerate change.
VERDICT An offering of nonpareil implications for any business or organization. This title expands Chip and Dan Heath’s Switch. It also serves as a contemporary update to Clayton Christensen’s classic The Innovator’s Dilemma. Highly recommended for all university libraries supporting business curricula.
