Such companies typically have an ambition beyond the conventional resources available to them. They are innovative and radical, and most enjoy significant and sustained periods of growth.
This book analyses the practices and disciplines that underpin the successful Challenger organisation. In particular it looks at how Challenger leadership and culture can be developed in large, complex, established organisations.

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.

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunityAuthors:¬†Steven D‚ÄôSouza and Diana Renner
In order to thrive in worrying times,¬†this fascinating book proposes we¬†head, uncomfortably, towards the¬†unknown, rather than away from it.¬†By developing a unique relationship¬†with Not Knowing we discover a new¬†way of living, working and succeeding¬†in our modern world.
This book re-frames the concept of Not¬†Knowing, from being in a fearful place¬†of weakness and ignorance, moving¬†to something we must engage with¬†personally. It introduces us to a new¬†paradigm, where Not Knowing becomes¬†an exciting opportunity, where we are¬†no longer limited by what we already¬†know and our habitual reactions tothings that life throws at us, so that¬†deeper knowing can emerge, full of ¬†rich possibilities and wisdom.
Communicate what you stand for¬†by telling a better storyAuthor:¬†Mark Masters Marketing has changed more¬†in the past 20 years than any¬†other business discipline. So why¬†are we relying on the same-old¬†textbooks? Why do business¬†owners still think that shouting¬†louder than the competition is¬†the answer to longevity? The old marketing way, where¬†we were encouraged to spend¬†more on advertising and to be¬†seen, is dead. Marketing was¬†about interrupting the masses,¬†but times have changed. The¬†only differentiator we have, as¬†businesses, are the stories we tell.
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.
