What are the myths of innovation?
\nIf you've been tracking the business innovation space over the past year or so, you're probably aware that Scott Berkun is working on a new book about innovation with an April 2007 release date. Below, Scott explains that a major focus of the new book will be identifying and exploring the myths of innovation:
"The book is called The myths of innovation and it has 3 goals:\n\n
1) Identify the myths we have about new ideas and innovation\n\n
\n2) Explore why they’re popular and how they came to be
\n3) Use lessons from history to replace myths with knowledge
I’m taking big swings in this book: I take on meaty concepts like\ncreativity, revolution, history and progress, telling great stories\nfrom innovations past, while delivering advice at a fast pace. It’s a\nshorter book than art of project management but the challenge to readers, and the value,\nis much greater."
Good luck, Scott, with the new book! For any readers out there with a special hankering for innovation, The Myths of Innovation is already available for pre-order on Amazon.\n\n

It's up to us humans to re-humanize our world. An economy that prioritizes growth and profits over humanity has led to digital platforms that "strip the topsoil" of human behavior, whole industries, and the planet, giving less and less back. And only we can save us.
- It's an all-hands-on-deck moment in the arc of civilization.
- Everyone has a choice: Do you want to try to earn enough money to insulate yourself from the world you're creating— or do you want to make the world a place you don't have to insulate yourself from?
