Welcome! I am very pleased to announce that “63 Innovation Nuggets (for aspiring innovators)” is available through Amazon in hardcover (and as an ebook soon)! You can also order a hardcover at Barnes&Noble. The collection of nuggets in this book broaden the concept of innovation from the historically narrow view around new products emanating just from R&D.
My innovative global leadership stretches across consumer products, entrepreneurial financial services, and global professional services, so it’s natural for me to feel that today’s innovation emanates from a diverse array of individuals across a wide range of functional areas including finance, technology, manufacturing, marketing, engineering, and sales.
“Barbee’s experiences have convinced him that most of us have an innovative spark that can be ignited. Being innovative is personally rewarding and can add great value to any organization. Innovation is all around us and using these nuggets can help improve observation skills, transfer skills, and many other skills.”
“The analogy of panning for gold nuggets is intriguing. Pioneering prospectors collect and sort through individual pieces. At first, an individual nugget may appear to have minimal value, but it is the total collection that results in the greatest wealth.”
