Inspiring NEXT Series

Books on Innovation by Dr. Ripi Singh

What is Innovation?

Innovation is like a sport – a team sport, a contact sport, played in the market arena. You don’t win every game, but if you practice regularly with a coach, your success rate keeps getting better. A brilliant coach is the one who stays with you on the ground, pushes you hard, gives you timely and candid feedback, inspires your team with strategic plans, and also helps you with tactical moves. A real coach is always by your side, physically, mentally, and emotionally; happy when you win, empathetic when you lose, and even provocative when required for your own good.

The Inspiring NEXT series is a package of innovation best practices and tools, to help leaders and readers strengthen the mental muscle and build the organization’s innovation capacity. It is not intended to replace your coach but assist you both.
