Innovation is Everybody's Business
IN THIS SUMMARY
Innovation is Everybody’s Business by Robert B. Tucker discusses how employees at any level, in any organization or industry can make themselves invaluable by championing innovation. With routine tasks being automated or outsourced, more value is placed on those tasks that require specialized expertise and creativity. The seven innovation skills (or I-Skills) Tucker describes can be put to use by anyone who wants to become irreplaceable and indispensable to their organization. The seven innovation skills include embracing the opportunity mindset, assaulting assumptions, maintaining passion for the end customer, thinking ahead of the curve, fortifying the idea factory, being considered a standout collaborator, and building buy-in for ideas and enroll others in the vision.
