New Thoughts on Innovation
The Power of Little Ideas: A Low-Risk, High-Reward Approach to Innovation - David Robertson,Kent Lineback
Mapping Innovation: A Playbook for Navigating a Disruptive Age - Greg Satell
The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World - Brad Stone

I'm reading for my July-August review in Global Business and Organizational Excellence and these titles pretty much run the gamut on innovation. From a core product that needs some new life to a disruptive, groundbreaking, category-changing idea, there are some excellent insights offered in each of these new books.

A Strong Finish
The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future - Kevin Kelly
Small Data: The Tiny Clues That Uncover Huge Trends - Martin Lindstrom,Chip Heath
Pre-Suasion: A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade - Robert Cialdini

I have to admit, this is a great group of books for my last review of 2016 in Global Business and Organizational Excellence. I have been driving my husband crazy while I've read these, spewing out all kinds of facts whether he wanted to hear them or not. There is some truly remarkable information here, and honestly, each title deserves a look since they are all very different in subject and scope. I promise, you will feel smarter when you finish, and, at the very least,  you will have plenty of interesting stories for your next cocktail party.

Global Business and Organizational Excellence
Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World - Cal Newport
Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change: The Theory and Practice of Sustaining Change Through People - Julie Hodges
Negotiating the Nonnegotiable: How to Resolve Your Most Emotionally Charged Conflicts - Daniel Shapiro

These are the next three titles I'm reviewing for the September-October issue of GBOE. I recommend reading Deep Work first, so you are able to properly focus on the other two. Interesting studies into negotiations, change, and intense focus. I shut off my phone, laptop and ipad in order to read them - two out of three were perfect, actual paper-bound books. I used my distraction-free kindle for the third.

Illuminate: Ignite Change Through Speeches, Stories, Ceremonies, and Symbols - Nancy Duarte,Patti Sanchez
The Digital Transformation Playbook: Rethink Your Business for the Digital Age (Columbia Business School Publishing) - David L. Rogers
The Industries of the Future - Alec Ross

These are the next titles for review in the July-August issue of

Global Business and Organizational Excellence. Each presents a different part of the picture for our future as leaders, workers, innovators and entrepreneurs. The forecast is inspiring, startling, and even, at times, unsettling, but all three offer advice on how best to prepare.
