Unleashing the Collective Genius in Your Organization
What does it take to build organizations that can innovate again and again? The short answer: the right leadership. In her new book, Collective Genius, Professor Hill shows exceptional leaders of innovation in action. Based on a decade of observations of leaders from across the globe, Hill reveals how they go about developing organizations where people are willing and able to do the hard work that innovative problem solving requires. They build communities with a shared purpose and consistent set of values and rules of engagement that allow individual slices of genius to be leveraged into collective genius. They develop in their organizations the key capabilities required to get innovation done: collaboration, discovery-driven learning, and integrative decision-making. Professor Hill details what organizations can do to develop leaders with the right mindset and talents.
