Building the Perpetually Innovative CompanyAuthors:¬†Kai Engel, Violetka Dirlea, Stephen Dyer and Jochen Graff.
Masters of Innovation is the manual for creating a sustainable innovative organization ‚Äď because innovation is not an art. It‚Äôs a capability. The past 15 years have brought a flood of how-to books about innovation, most of them stuffed with stories of startling eureka moments and charismatic leaders. These stories have little to teach business leaders their own innovation capability. But Masters of Innovation clearly and concisely explains how managers make innovation more than just a ‚Äėbreakthrough moment‚Äô.
This book offers the real experience of the world‚Äôs best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‚Äėtech‚Äô companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors‚ÄĒautomotive, train travel, household appliances‚ÄĒwhere slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a company‚Äôs profitable growth for decades.

Taking the¬†organization from the¬†industrial era to¬†the age of ideasAuthors:¬†Dr Mark Powell and Jonathan Gifford My Steam Engine is Broken calls on¬†a fresh generation of organizational¬†leaders to stop trying to fix a broken¬†and outmoded structure, and to create¬†new, successful working structures¬†that work with, not against, people‚Äôs¬†natural modes of behaviour. The authors explore the way in which¬†the Steam Engine organizational¬†model is no longer offering job¬†satisfaction to its members precisely¬†(and paradoxically) because members¬†are not being enabled, and are often¬†being prevented, from delivering¬†what the organization most needs¬†from them: self-direction, innovation,¬†leadership and heartfelt commitment.

HOW THE FUTURE¬†CAN BE WONAuthor:¬†Lars Tvede
Human creativity has been one of the¬†fundamental drivers of civilization¬†and progress ‚Äď solving immense¬†problems, creating opportunities¬†and overcoming enemies like no¬†other force. Often it has baffled its¬†skeptics by finding new and better¬†resources, unexpected environmental¬†technologies and genuinely amazing¬†products that no one had predicted.
However, like so many before¬†it, Western civilization is now¬†suffering from serious internal¬†decay with its bloated public sectors,¬†punitive taxes, over-regulation,¬†marginalized citizens, stagnation,¬†debt, unemployment and pessimism.
