Book Sneeze Innovation's Dirty Little Secret Why Serial Innovators Succeed Where Others Fail By Larry Osborne

This book comes on the coat tails of a wonderful weekend in San Francisco where I took a design and creativity class.
It has had smatterings of the same insights such as the fork in the road anaology.  We often view a fork in the road in our creativity as "Choice A" or "Choice B". And one of those is the "wrong" choice, right? One leads to success and the other to failure. Failure is ofcourse BAD....or is it?
Instead of viewing the forks in our paths this way, we should look at them as opportunities for exploration letting us see what could happen, and being able too take either fork or both.



More than just using helpful tools such as blueprinting your business, and creating a mission statement. In thi sbook you will be encouraged to discover how to:
  • ignite innovation
  • accelerate innovation
  • what sabotages innovation
  • and leaving a legacy of innovation
take chances, make mistakes......
