A framework for overcoming the six types of innovation killers

Everybody wants innovation—or do they? Creative People Must Be Stopped shows how individuals and organizations sabotage their own best intentions to encourage 'outside the box' thinking. It shows that the antidote to this self-defeating behavior is to identify which of the six major types of constraints are hindering innovation: individual, group, organizational, industry-wide, societal, or technological. Once innovators and other leaders understand exactly which constraints are working against them and how to overcome them, they can create conditions that foster innovation instead of stopping it in its tracks.

The author's model of constraints on innovation integrates insights from the vast literature on innovation with his own observations of hundreds of organizations. The book is filled with assessments, tools, and real-world examples.

  • The author's research has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, London Guardian and San Jose Mercury News, as well as on Fox News and on NPR's Marketplace
  • Includes illustrative examples from leading organizations
  • Offers a practical guide for bringing new ideas to fruition even within a previously rigid organizational culture

This book gives people in organizations the conceptual framework and practical information they need to innovate successfully.

Klappentext
Praise for Creative People Must Be Stopped

"Innovation is about asking the right questions! Dave Owens describes a fresh way to ask and answer the questions that really make a difference in successful innovation."Chad Holliday, chairman, Bank of America; retired chairman and CEO, DuPont

"Ever wonder why your company can't seem to succeed at breakthrough innovation? Or why your team's big idea never goes anywhere? Or why you aren't able to generate more creative solutions to problems? Creative People Must Be Stopped will help you answer these questions, diagnose what's behind these underperformances, and get unstuck. Combining solid insights and theory with practical approaches and compelling stories, Owens brings clarity to a topic that is often misunderstood."Todd A. McCullough, partner, Monitor Group; adjunct faculty, Institute ofDesign at Illinois Institute of Technology; managing director, Doblin Inc.

"Owens writes as he teaches, with humor, candor, and surprisingly sophisticated theoretical underpinning. The result is an engaging and very accessible book filled with practical tools for leaders interested in advancing their innovation agendas."Lisa C. King, vice president, insights and innovation, Newell Rubbermaid

"This is essential and timely reading for leaders in the field of arts and culture. Dave Owens is able to clearly convey the barriers to innovation and how to overcome them. His insights about how to make good ideas actually result in positive change are invaluable to any leader seeking to strengthen an organization, and offer a fresh and clarifying approach to the whole concept of innovation."Russell Willis Taylor, president and CEO, National Arts Strategies

"Creative People Must Be Stopped explores why so many great ideas never make it to market, and why some do. It is rich in real-world examples and provides straightforward tools to unleash your innovation potential. It is essential reading for anyone who thinks that they might have something to do with innovation, and especially for those who don't."Neil A. Willcocks, vice president, research and development, Mars Petcare
