This book was written not for those in the C-suite, but for middle managers who have to carry out the often-thankless work of running a business. Acknowledging the tension between innovation (important but uncertain) and stability (important but ultimately stifling), the authors persuasively describe the need for businesses to nurture internal catalysts—folks who can overcome internal gridlock to promote sustainable growth. With smart tips, solid advice, and useful examples, this book feels particularly timely, given the sorry state of the economy.
