Innovating Innovation

Leadership Tools to Make Revolutionary Change Happen for You and Your Business (For Readers of Trillion Dollar Coach or Innovation Lab Excellence)

By David Morey

#1 New Release in Industrial Management & Leadership ─ Breakthrough Innovation Tools for Successful Leadership

Innovation needs innovation: Innovation is broken. Business leadership is struggling to find ways to crack through corporate politics or bureaucratic silos, to move from defense to offense, to nurture real breakthrough, to drive visionary creativity in ways that add new value to everything they do. In Innovating Innovation, David Morey, one of America’s leading strategic consultants, teaches, coaches, and guides you across eleven concrete and pragmatic steps that unlock and drive day-to-day innovation in your business and help you gain a long-term competitive advantage.

Make change and innovation happen: Innovating Innovation synergizes what is best in classic innovation theories with an insurgent strategic model inspired by one of Morey’s first corporate clients, Apple founder Steve Jobs. It shows how to lead innovation that creates the products of visionary genius without the necessity for actual genius. It provides practical tools and guidance on building and leading the teams, working conditions, organizational structures, and cultures of market-made and market-making innovation. It illustrates a roadmap to the disruptive periphery, the organizational margins at which real innovation actually takes place.

Innovation can be taught: Innovating Innovation is a framework to counter failure. It directs you, the reader, to the consumer, the very person who will actually tell you how to innovate the benefits to create a future you can own. This book invites you to “think different,” to become a change leader, to go the “wrong” way to get to the right places.

After reading this new battlefield manual for innovation, you will:

  • Learn the Disruptive Periphery Concept and how it can give you the tools to help your business
  • Discover a practical marketing-centric focus applied to innovation
  • Reap the benefits of lessons developed from thirty years of real-world global consulting and training experience

#1 New Release in Organizational Change

First comes the magic, and then the magic becomes the reality

We are all capable of magic. You may think you know what magic is. Abracadabra, hocus-pocus. Forget about it. Magic is what human beings do. It’s just that some do it a lot better than others.

Key business strategy secrets from the world's greatest magicians. This book takes everything that three remarkable authors―a corporate strategist, a former acting CIA director, and a world-renowned magician―have learned about magic and packs it into a unique framework that captures the best of this art form. Then the book relates it directly to key lessons applicable to a wide variety of business enterprises. The authors’ objective is not to create a new generation of magicians, but to adapt nine strategies of the world’s greatest magicians; bolstering innovation, energizing leadership, and sparking business success.

Magic and disruptive innovation. Each chapter opens with a scenario depicting a pivotal historic moment in magic (think Harry Houdini, Doug Henning, Penn and Teller, David Copperfield) and uses it as a starting point to explore how the magical technique employed can create a fertile environment for industry, disruptive innovation, and propel a company light years ahead of the competition.

Learn how to:

  • Anticipate the next trends
  • Create remarkable new products
  • Launch marketing and advertising campaigns that will mesmerize
  • Make dazzling sales presentations
  • Resolve seemingly unsolvable business dilemmas
  • Inspire teams with resilient change leadership
