These projects and more highlight his passion for inspiration, creativity and innovation.
Stefanovich’s first book, Look at More: A Proven Approach to Innovation, Growth and Change was released in April 2011.

As a speaker, Stefanovich has the opportunity to travel the world discussing his most inspiring discoveries, observances, and experiences. Constantly soaking in knowledge as he explores, his well never runs dry.
In 1990, Stefanovich cofounded Play, a creativity and innovation company that changed the way business does business. While there, he equipped leading companies with ways to inspire their people and generate sustainable innovation. Prophet and Play joined forces in December 2008.
Stefanovich currently acts as visiting professor at many leading universities, including Dartmouth, University of Michigan, Duke, University of Richmond, and the Wharton School of Leadership. As a professor, he remains continually encouraged by the wealth of talent that will soon shape the world. He is honored to be a part of that shaping.

As a nationally recognized thought leader on corporate culture, leadership, and innovation, Stefanovich is ever focused on how ideas can manifest. In his programs, he is sure to teach practical skills, leadership behaviors, and specific processes for developing and implementing ideas at work.
His topics include “The Innovation Discipline: The Inside Out,” which addresses the macro level innovation mood of an organization and the micro level creative mindset of the people; “The Museum Mentality: Focusing Your Organization on Inspiration and Innovation,” which uses storytelling to show that to inspire and to be inspired are fundamental to an innovative workplace, and “The Inspiration Continuum: 24 Hours of Innovation,” a meditation on inspiration. What does inspiration mean, and where can you find it? How can we best cultivate our inspiratories?
Inspiration and innovation is the name of Stefanovich’s game. Booking Stefanovich for your next event is a no-brainer for those who desire a workplace that isn’t about work, but that sees work as play; as invention, as creativity, as wonder. Audiences will walk away with a changed mindset, ready to open their minds to inspiration, wherever they may find it next.
The Innovation Discipline: The Inside Out
Why does real innovation elude so many companies? Because the focus is at the macro level exclusively: assets, processes, and outputs. Instead, organizations need a more holistic focus that includes inspiring its people to unleash inspiration at the individual micro level. This workshop helps participants engage, reflect, and collaborate as the learn how to drive innovation throughout the organization -- from the inside out.
Andy Stefanovich, Author of Look at More, details his 5M discipline to innovation. A discipline that addresses the macro level innovation mood of the organization and the micro level creative mindset of the people.
Through provocative anecdotes and road tested case studies with Fortune 50 companies, Andy shares how the 5Ms can act as a diagnostic tool and road map for changing individuals, empowering teams, and transforming organizations. A discipline that goes beyond a quick burst of excitement to sustain innovation - organizationally, culturally, and personally.
The Museum Mentality: Focusing Your Organization on Inspiration and Innovation
Why do we give ourselves permission to be inspired at a museum, but not at work? Because we expect it at the museum. To drive innovation and growth in business we need to give that same permission, and create that same expectation, for the people in our organizations. The permission to inspire and be inspired.
Through a unique storytelling approach, Prophet’s Andy Stefanovich creates the museum mentality - combining proven client based examples with real-world observations. Focusing on the front end of innovation -- and giving your team the permission to inspire themselves and one another with a museum mentality -- is the most effective way to positively impact innovation.
Andy will also teach them how to become a "curator and provocateur" within their organization, including techniques to inspire innovation by delight, by design, and on demand to systemically drive business innovations.
The Inspiration Continuum: 24 Hours of Innovation
Your desk is a terrible place to get inspired. But the reality is, it’s where you spend your work day -- and where you’re expected to be your most innovative. With the right mindset, you can create your own source for inspiration - anywhere and anytime.
Using his principles of "look at more stuff and think about it harder," Andy Stefanovich will teach you how to build your inspiratory - a source, and process, for inspiring innovation. During this visually engaging presentation, Andy will detail the inspiration continuum, including direct, tangential, and abstract sources of inspiration. He will teach participants how to "look at more stuff" and the discipline of drawing insights from observations by using visual examples he has curated in the last 72 (24) hours.

A Proven Approach to Innovation, Growth, and Change
"I’ll show you how to become a curator of inspiration and drive innovation for yourself and your business," writes Andy Stefanovich in his new book Look At More. This is no ordinary book about innovation. Rather, it’s a guided tour of the best ways to harness inspiration by thinking differently — and encouraging others to do the same.
Andy shares insights into his proven LAMSTAIH approach (Look At More Stuff, Think About It Harder) as well as his 5 Ms (Mood, Mindset, Mechanisms, Measurement, Momentum) providing detailed instructions, plus dozens of stories that illustrate what innovation looks like in action.
These are the methods that Andy and the Prophet team have used to help clients like GE, Disney, Coca-Cola, the U.S. Olympic Committee, and Ritz Carlton develop new products, build brands and audiences, grow market share, and encourage workforce creativity. Look At More makes innovation easy and accessible to everyone.
