On March 12, my co-author Chris Trimble and I are publishing a very different kind of book. It is a parable about innovation called How Stella Saved the Farm. I invite you to learn more about how this small book can have a big impact on your organization.
VG -- as he's known throughout the business world -- worked with GE's CEO Jeff Immelt to write "How GE is Disrupting Itself," a Harvard Business Review article that introduced the concept of reverse innovation -- any innovation that is adopted first in the developing world. Harvard Business Review has rated reverse innovation as one of the 10 big ideas of the decade.
