Summary

Innovation is a key source of competitive advantage-but it remains frustratingly elusive for many organizations. Despite the huge investments companies around the world are making to develop innovative leaders and to foster innovation with their teams, they are not succeeding. Too often, innovation is seen as a specialist's role, confined to the silos of R&D, engineering, and product development when-to ensure that the organizations will be innovative and remain competitive in the future-a culture of innovation needs to be created and fostered throughout the organization. The new complexities of work today demand a new way of thinking that goes beyond the logic-and-memory approach of traditional IQ intelligence-they demand Innovative Intelligence. Innovative Intelligence offers a four-step process to help leaders control their traditional IQ thinking and move beyond it, enabling them to respond innovatively to complex problems and to lead teams to become more innovative, no matter what their role. It shows how to embrace a culture of innovation and have it permeate throughout the organization, at every level. Moreover, readers will learn how to overcome the organizational and cultural barriers that may be preventing innovation within their workplaces. Through case studies, practical tools and strategies, Innovative Intelligence presents the core principles that describe how leaders, managers, and teams can learn to think innovatively, and how leaders can apply their innovative intelligence to evolve their organizations and work culture to achieve greater business success.
