Product description

Product Description

Serial entrepreneur Steve Glaveski has drawn on insights derived from working on the corporate innovation initiatives of large companies and interviewing thought leaders as host of the iTunes chart ranking Future Squared podcast to pen The Innovation Manager’s Handbook: Volume 2 - Float like a Corporate, Sting like a Startup.
With more than 50% of today’s large companies facing extinction in the next 10 years at current rates of churn due to executive mindsets that are geared towards delivering the old (eg. Blockbuster) instead of discovering the new (eg. Netflix), Glaveski has distilled key insights into a roadmap for corporate innovation.
Pattern recognition underpins great ideas and Glaveski has recognised many, having interviewed thought leaders such as Tim Harford (author of The Undercover Economist), Alec Ross (Barack Obama’s advisor on innovation), Steve Blank (considered the Godfather of Silicon Valley), Ash Maurya (author of Running Lean), Jamie Wheal (co-author of Stealing Fire), Parag Khanna (author of Connectography), Susan David (author of Emotional Agility), Ryan Blair (author of Rock Bottom to Rock Star), Justin Lokitz (co-author of Design a Better Business), Jenny Blake (author of Pivot), Ben Yoskovitz (author of Lean Analytics), Robert Kegan (co-author of Building an Everyone Culture) and Karen Dillon (co-author of Clayton Christensen’s Competing Against Luck).
If your organisation needs help coming up with ideas, testing and turning ideas into reality, building a culture of innovation and creativity or connecting and partnering with startups to move the needle on innovation then this book is for you.

Glaveski outlines the mindsets, methods and tools required to successfully explore new business models and disruptive innovation in an era of rapid change, including:

- Ideation techniques
- Design thinking
- Lean Startup
- Corporate Startup accelerators
- KPIs and success metrics
- Hackathons
- Startup accelerators
- Culture change

Go a step further and discover the rituals and routines that underpin the successes of thought leaders, extending to time and productivity management hacks, flow hacking, mindfulness and meditation routines and nutrition and fitness tips.

Learn how to drive corporate innovation initiatives successfully and avoid the pitfalls that most organisations fall into when engaging in what Glaveski calls ‘innovation theatre’.

“I connect strongly with Steve Glaveski regarding the avoidance of innovation theatre, grand displays drawing hype and attention with little substance or return. I think you will find the needle on your organisation’s culture, idea generation and return on innovation investment shifts positively as you apply the ideas and tactics he describes...Dive in. Learn how to maximise your investment in innovation. Enjoy the read”
Leslie Barry - Head of Innovation at Sportsbet

“In this book, Steve Glaveski takes the reader on an innovation journey like no other. Like an experienced innovation safari guide, he points out the most important lesson along your path and tells and tells them in an insightful and entertaining way like no other. An essential addition to anyone wanting to improve their innovation success.”
Evan Shellshear - Author of Amazon Bestseller ‘Innovation Tools’
