Without sustained innovation, most organizations will simply fade away. Explaining how to achieve sustained innovation success in today’s increasingly competitive global environment, ENOVALE: How to Unlock Sustained Innovation Project Success provides a validated strategy for implementing innovation projects following the ENOVALETM methodology: envision the need, nominate, objectify, validate, align and adapt, link, and execute. The authors’ first book, Chance or Choice: Unlocking Innovation Success, introduced a proven management process, using the ENOVALE methodology, for identifying innovation opportunities through validated outcomes. This book takes the outcome and provides a method—from project initiation to completion. Goes beyond the typical innovation book to outline specific solutions and strategies Includes templates, flow charts, tools, and strategies for each "means" of innovation Provides business examples of the philosophy, strategic elements, and success criteria that readers can easily relate to The text begins by explaining what strategy means in terms of innovation and how it can be transformative for products, processes, and services. After an overview of innovation, the book discusses a series of strategies for each of the three means of innovation. These strategies outline a systematic process you can use to initiate and conduct your own innovation projects. The book includes numerous business examples that illustrate the authors’ philosophy, strategic elements, and success criteria. After reading this book you will gain a solid understanding of five time-proven implementation strategies that can be applied to any type of innovation project.

ENOVALE is a blueprint that provides leaders and managers of any organization with a strategic framework to initiate and maintain innovation and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. What makes this book different is that it originates from decades of experience, cutting-edge research, and empirical evidence. The results come from the authors’ work on Project Impact, an ongoing multiyear global study to measure attitudes, opinions, and disposition of different cultures towards innovation. Expanding on the current definition of innovation, the book: Spells out a detailed "how-to" approach for those responsible for innovation leadership Outlines practical solutions and time-tested strategies Emphasizes the role of the individual as the ultimate innovator Presents concepts that are applicable across a range of industries, including the services industry Rather than relegating innovation to the R&D and engineering functions, the book extends the ENOVALE framework into all functions of your organization. It also details a project strategy useful for any type of innovation to help you lead your teams in leveraging the innovative capabilities valued by your customers and users. Throughout the book, the authors outline the tools and concepts you will need to move your organization from simply surviving to thriving in today’s brutally competitive global environment.

The basis for a major documentary, two leading experts sound an urgent call for the radical reimagining of American education so we can equip students for the realities of the twenty-first-century economy. We prize academic achievement, pressuring our children to get into the "right" colleges, have the highest GPAs, and pursue advanced degrees. But while students may graduate with credentials, by and large they lack the competencies needed to be thoughtful, engaged citizens and to get good jobs in our rapidly evolving economy. Alarmingly, our methods of schooling crush the creativity and initiative young people really need to thrive in the twenty-first century. Now bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines. Their powerful, urgent message identifies the growing gap between credentials and competence--and offers a framework for change. Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today's economy.
