Cats! Nine Lives of Innovation

From Stephen Lundin, the author of Fish! comes another management book with an animal title which deals with innovation. Some ideas from the book are :
  • Cats are always prepared, since innovation favours a prepared mind.
  • Cats create an innovation-friendly environment.
  • Cats know innovation is not normal. We need routine but we also need to break out of routine to innovate.
  • Cats enjoy social provocation - conversation is a prime example - since it stimulates ideas.
  • Cats promote intellectual provocation, stimulating their thinking with unusual thoughts or reading.
Interesting ideas worth trying, cat lover or not.
