Culture may eat Strategy for breakfast, but Structure eats Culture.
Safi Bahcall believes companies can change from embracing wild ideas to rigidly rejecting them, the way flowing water will suddenly change into brittle ice. He also believes those same companies can use new thinking to avoid this sclerotic fate.
Bahcall’s book, Loonshots, is cliché-breaking, and he’ll be speaking about its large consequences at the RamsayTalks breakfast on April 17. Already, it’s in sterling company…
Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize, says this about Loonshots. “[It]…has everything: new ideas, bold insights, entertaining history and convincing analysis. Not to be missed by anyone who wants to understand how ideas change the world.”
Pulitzer-prize winning Siddhartha Mukherjee calls Loonshots: “Wonderful … explores the beauty, quirkiness, and complexity of ideas … you need to read this book.”
Piling on to a mountain of raves, The Washington Post put Loonshots among 10 Leadership Books to Watch in 2019.
So please join us to hear how to consistently nurture ‘loonshots’, the against-all-odds ideas that really drive the future.
