The Idea Stormers: How to Lead and Inspire Creative Breakthroughs | Request

The Idea Stormers: How to Lead and Inspire Creative Breakthroughs

Every organization needs a steady supply of fresh, relevant ideas, but managers can't just lock teams in a room with a mandate to brainstorm and hope for the best. Ideation is both a science and an art, and when group ideation processes are well–designed and well–facilitated, anyone can generate an abundance of creative, implementable options not to mention true breakthroughs for any business need. Drawing on his work leading high–stakes ideation sessions at over 300 organizations, Mattimore explains the how, what, and why of successful ideation and provides a framework for when and how to apply various techniques.

  • Identifies Mattimore's top ideation and innovation techniques (including brainwalking, finding inspiration in worst ideas, the unexpected effectiveness of wishing, and more) and lays the groundwork for you to invent successful processes of your own
  • Tells real stories of ideation at work in Mattimore's consulting business, including how Ben & Jerry's named a new strawberry fudge flavor, how Thomas invented a new, healthier English muffin that now accounts for over 30% of its sales, how IBM transformed the culture of one of its divisions to make it more innovative, and many more
  • Mattimore is a world–class expert on applied creativity and an innovation process consultant to over one–third of the Fortune 100 companies; he and his team have helped create and launch products and services worth over $3 billion in annual US retail sales

With a diverse range of tested methods, Idea Stormers is the indispensable guide for developing original, practical solutions to even the most intractable–seeming creative challenges.

INNOVATION ACCELERATION | Request

INNOVATION ACCELERATION

This book will help develop an understanding of an innovative organization, the specific processes involved in corporate innovation, and how to assess your organization's readiness for entrepreneurial activity and innovation. It will help you learn how to get more ideas successfully to market and how to write effective innovation plans for the implementation of innovative ideas. As opposed to simply corporate entrepreneurship or technology entrepreneurship, the principal focus of this book will be new product and service innovation. What distinguishes structures for innovation from the processes for innovation will be explored. The chapter dealing with the corporate innovation process will examine the various stage-gate and other nonlinear models in the new product development literature. Finally, since it is about "acceleration," we explore the outcomes that are being accelerated and specify the kinds of metrics that are involved. This book helps you to understand innovation by explaining the four stages of the innovation process, improve your skills in the innovation process, and unleash your personal innovative abilities. In additional, you will find ways to access the organization's attitudes towards innovation, giving you insights into how to diagnose creative and innovative performance problems in the organization.

RENEWABLE ENERGY AND THE PUBLIC | Request

RENEWABLE ENERGY AND THE PUBLIC

Throughout the world, the threat of climate change is pressing governments to accelerate the deployment of technologies to generate low carbon electricity or heat. But this is frequently leading to controversy, as energy and planning policies are revised to support new energy sources or technologies (e.g. offshore wind, tidal, bioenergy or hydrogen energy) and communities face the prospect of unfamiliar, often large-scale energy technologies being sited near to their homes. Policy makers in many countries face tensions between 'streamlining' planning procedures, engaging with diverse publics to address what is commonly conceived as 'NIMBY' (not in my back yard) opposition, and the need to maintain democratic, participatory values in planning systems. This volume provides a timely, international review of research on public engagement, in contexts of diverse, innovative energy technologies. Public engagement is conceived broadly - as the interaction between how developers and other key actors engage with publics about energy technologies (including assumptions held about the methods used, such as the provision of financial benefits or the holding of deliberative events), and how individuals and groups engage with energy policies and projects (including indirectly through the media and directly through emotional and behavioural responses). The book's contributors are leading experts in the UK, Europe, North and South America and Australia drawn from a variety of relevant social science disciplinary perspectives. The book makes a significant contribution to our existing knowledge, as well as providing interested professionals, policymakers and members of the public with a timely overview of the critical issues involved in public engagement with low carbon energy technologies.

Methane and Climate Change

This timely and authoritative book provides the only comprehensive and balanced overview of our current knowledge of sources of methane and how these might be controlled to limit future climate change. It describes how methane is derived from the anaerobic metabolism of micro-organisms, whether in wetlands or rice fields, manure, landfill or wastewater, or the digestive systems of cattle and other ruminant animals. It highlights how sources of methane might themselves be affected by climate change. It is shown how numerous point sources of methane have the potential to be more easily addressed than sources of carbon dioxide and therefore contribute significantly to climate change mitigation in the 21st century
