Innovate or Die

This afternoon, before the football games kicked off, I started reading a book by Tom Kelly, one of the founders of IDEO, the wonderful design company. I had the chance to hear Mr. Kelly speak at the Famous Entrepreneurs Series (thanks to our friends at the Sensis Corporation)here in Syracuse a couple of weeks ago, and found his presentation to be outstanding. So, with high expectations, I openede up The Ten Faces of Innovation and was blown away in the first pages.
From the book:

“As Tom Peters would say, you can’t shrink your way to greatness. One way to look at the current pressure cooker of international business is as a fierce competition, where you win through innovation or lose the game. Today, companies are valued less for their current offerings than for their ability to change and adapt and dream up something new."

I can’t wait to continue to get into the rest of the book. And if you get the chance to hear Tom Kelly speak…take advantage of it. You won’t be sorry!
