The Innovation Race: Building a culture for sustainable innovation

Gaia Grant

Why do some countries, companies, and cultures race ahead while others struggle? The Innovation Race takes readers on a lively global adventure to explore the state of innovation around the world today, and to identify how to create a sustainable and purpose-driven innovation culture. The 4-key paradoxical pairings identified by research that need to be negotiated are identified, and the “polar positioning technique” is introduced as a way of successfully navigating these challenges. Economists have found that up to 80% of growth comes from innovation, so creating a sustainable culture that supports innovation will be critical for sustainable growth.
