CROOKED MINDS : CREATING AN INNOVATIVE SOCIETY
Author : Kiran Karnik
Language : English
Genre : Non-fiction
Author Kiran Karnik writes about two clever entrepreneurs, one in Mumbai and the other in Stockholm, who collected small insurance premia from train travelers, who could then travel ticketless on the suburban or metro trains. The author then addressed the question: are crooked minds more innovative? He prefers to look at crooked in the geometric sense — thought processes that deviate from the straight and conventionally defined mode. Innovation means something different from what exists: be it a product, a process or a business model. Crooked Minds is an apt book for readers who wants to know what innovation really is, get an update on the innovation ecosystem in the country and elsewhere, learn how to scale innovative ideas, know what organizations need to do to engender an innovation culture and finally, know how to stimulate, foster and promote innovation in organizations.
