Making the Invisible Visible
Drawing from more than 30 years in the field of innovation and creativity, Bob Rosenfeld has found a direct relationship between the application of particular principles and the ability of an innovation leader to sustain the innovative process. Organizations survive on the success of their ideas; sustaining innovation depends on the people who make it happen.
Making the Invisible Visible examines both the essence and the environment of innovation; factors that both threaten and sustain it; and the often-hidden principles that are necessary to create a culture of innovation and/or help organizations find and nurture the right people.
The Invisible Element
In The Invisible Element, Robert “Bob” Rosenfeld and Gary Wilhelmi share their 80-plus years of experience as innovation leaders and practitioners. The book lays out practical points and applicable insights for how people can make innovation happen inside their organizations.
Innovation is made up of business, technical, and human elements. Because it is often invisible, the human element is the least understood and hardest to grasp. The Invisible Element explains the principles behind creating a sustainable culture of innovation and provides a practical guide for their implementation.
