Personal Review: The Leaders Guide to Lateral Thinking Skills:
Unlocking the Creativity and Innovation in You and Your Team
by Paul Sloane
At times when management literature abounds with dos and donts based
on conventional wisdom, here is a powerful defender of the values of
unconventional wisdom. Paul Sloane makes a strong case for innovation
and lateral thinking in business, where doing new, different things in new,
different ways is more important than doing the same things more
efficiently. The book is rich with examples from the real world where
creative thinking and action have led to astonishing successes (even after
numerous failed attempts)and examples where conservatism and
conventional thinking have led to obsolescence or catastrophe. The author
argues that creative skills can and should be developed at the individual
level, the team level and the company level and the book abounds with tips
and techniques to help people and organizations expand their potential for
innovation. Lateral thinking puzzles placed at the end of each chapter, help
reinforce the fact that we all think "in boxes" with assumptions and
preconceptions that do not always correspond to reality. An excellent book.
