Any business that doesn’t innovate faces almost certain failure in a climate of heightened competition and high stakes. Innovation Strategy presents Rasheed’s Six-Step Collective Intelligence system that teaches practitioners both how to predict coming trends and how to build creative disruption that will keep their business on the front end of innovation.
Rasheed emphasizes the need for innovation at all levels of the organization, beyond product development. “Innovation is not only an imperative for organizations to prosper, but it has become critical for our national security,” he explains. “Most [innovation models] provide generalities and theories that relate only to technology, instead of clear guidance for a proactive and holistic approach to innovation that can apply to all sizes of companies and to all industries.”
