From the Back Cover:

Meeting the Innovation Challenge provides a balanced andintegrated approach to creativity, innovation, change andleadership. It is organized around a new model of creativeleadership andoffering a specific system that links people andsituations with process and content.

Essential reading for both practitioners and students,Meeting the Innovation Challenge moves beyond "What is thedifference between leadership and management?" to "How do we use afull spectrum of creative leadership skills to improve ourresponses to the need for change?"

"Status and significance within organizations are oftenadvertised, not simply by the size or position of a person'soffice, but by the size of their bookcase and the number ofbusiness books on display. Look closely, however, and most remainpristine, their pages crisply blocked and as solid as the day theprinter's guillotine fell.
Here's a book that'll be different: destined to be endlesslythumbed and dog-eared by real people engaged in transformation.They couldn't be in better hands. The authors are real people,bringing wisdom, insight and hard-won experience to that mostdifficult of tasks, leading transformation."
Mike King, Ogilvy and Mather, London, UK

"Professors Scott Isaksen and Joe Tidd remind us that change andsuccess are ultimately human endeavors. They tear down thedistinctions between leadership and management and innovation andcreativity that lead us to focus on characteristics rather thancharacter. Most importantly, Isaksen and Tidd offer a rigorousintegrated model for creative leadership and provide concrete ideasand suggestions, bringing that model alive. This is an importantbook."
Eugene J. McAllister President, University of GreatFalls Montana, USA

"As someone who has been doing research on organizationalclimate and leadership for the past forty years, I have particularinterest in finding ways to stimulate and utilize the creativecapabilities of people who work within organizations. This is a keychallenge for those who seek both radical and incremental change. Iam impressed that this book offers broader and deeper insights intosuch a relevant topic, and believe that it will be an excellentresource for both practitioners and scholars."
Göran Ekvall, Professor Emeritus OrganizationalPsychology Stockholm, Sweden
