News & Opinion: "From Idea to Execution"

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:47 PM – Filed under: Innovation & Creativity

As Todd mentioned earlier, a cover does not always represent the inside contents.
Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators is one such book. The book helps you take an idea and act upon it. Here's one glimpse into it: Todd's interview with Vijay and Chris. So, why does this book deserve two blog entries and one podcast? It's something new. The process of innovation is often written about; yet, as Vijay and Chris point out, being innovative is not necessarily the hardest part. The hardest part: executing it.
For more, check out the blog entry by Chris Trimble (co-author of the book).
