They showed me that there is still a lot more to be done with regards to innovation. I am already creating the plan to set up the 4 Lens Teams, and when I am further along with it I hope to be able to ask you a couple of questions about some of the specifics of the methodology.

Rowan Gibson creates tailored presentations to meet the needs of any company or organization seeking to develop a culture of innovation. Using relevant examples and industry information, Gibson crafts roadmaps to success. He has shared stages with luminaries ranging from Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich to Neil Armstrong and Guy Kawasaki.
Successful innovation needs to be systemic in an organization, but Gibson recognizes that most businesses find they are stronger in one area than in others. Accordingly, he offers advice targeted toward specific components of a company’s culture, including rethinking innovation as a system, rethinking the future, rethinking strategic planning, and rethinking human capital.
Gibson’s presentations are notable for their clarity and applicability. Audiences will leave inspired; they’ll also leave with concrete ideas they can readily put into practice.

Innovation to the Core: A Blueprint for Transforming the Way Your Company Innovates
If you′re like most business leaders, innovation now tops your corporate agenda. But despite all the talk and excitement about the importance of innovation, managers have so far found scant help for innovating in a systematic way that fuels consistent growth and sustained success.
In Innovation to the Core, Strategos CEO Peter Skarzynski and business strategist Rowan Gibson change all that. They share the accumulated wisdom from Strategos--the consulting firm Skarzynski co-founded with Gary Hamel that helps clients instill innovation into their very core. Drawing on a wealth of stories and examples, the book shows how companies of every stripe have overcome the barriers to successful, profitable innovation. You′ll find parts devoted to crucial topics--such as how to organize the discovery process, generate strategic insights, enlarge your innovation pipeline, and maximize your return on innovation. Frequent hands-on tools--frameworks, checklists, probing questions--help you put the book′s ideas into action.
Crafted in close coordination with Gary Hamel--the man who Fortune magazine has called "the world′s leading expert on business strategy"--Innovation to the Core is the definitive fieldbook for making innovation a core competence in your organization.
