Summary
  • "Cofounder of Fast Company magazine and bestselling author of Mavericks at Work and Practically Radical shows how true business innovation can spring from the unlikeliest places"--Amazon.com
  • "Disruption is the key to innovation. Whether you run a one-man startup or a global business behemoth, the only way to win big is by relentlessly rethinking the rules of your industry - no matter how tried-and-true they are. InSimply Brilliant, the visionary co-founder of Fast Company William C. Taylor goes behind the scenes at nineteen organizations that are revolutionizing their otherwise humdrum fields. These unlikely agents of change range from a parking garage that also serves as a wedding venue to a military insurance company that puts salespeople through simulated overseas deployment. What these businesses have in common, Taylor discovers, is a shared set of principles that enable them to pioneer disruptive innovation. By embracing these practical and often counter-intuitive strategies, leaders in any industry will be well on their way to upending the status quo and finding opportunity where competitors didn't or couldn't look."--Provided by publisher
