Why—and how—corporations must blow up best practices (and bring a beginner’s mind) to survive?
Organizations are transforming their behavior to innovate and stay competitive in the fast changing disruptive world. With a focus on optimism and empowerment, Detonate focuses on an approach and mindset that are critical to successfully compete in an era characterized by profound technological advances and uncertainty.
Without meaning to, and often with the best of intentions, many organizations continually waste precious time and money on processes and activities that don't create value and no longer make sense. Until now, the relatively slow speed of marketplace evolution has allowed wasteful habits to continue without consequence. This reality is ending.
DETONATE is a survival guide that empowers leaders to ignite change in their organization by helping them blow up the bad habits masquerading as “best practices” and giving them the confidence to do something different. Now a national bestseller, DETONATE: Why – and How – Companies Must Blow Up Best Practices (And Adopt a Beginner’s Mind) to Survive, can be used to spark new conversations and enable progress in the face of change. In the book, the authors explore the pitfalls of conventional wisdom; share lessons on how to blow up the playbooks holding organizations back; and provide the tools to build something better.
