I've published 3 books in the last 10 years, all of which are about how to activate ideas for our current ( ideas-based) economy.
My latest book, The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World (Viking, 2017), is a future-forward guide to advance original ideas, especially for those who don't have traditional power and status. It follows my 2nd book, which was published by Harvard with the lame title, The New Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era (Harvard Business Review, 2012). These“new rules” have evolved into accepted truths about our connected world, how connected people can now do what once only large organizations could. My first book, The New How (Oreilly, 2010) shows organizational leaders how to solve the persistent gap (the proverbial Air Sandwich) between strategy and execution, by taking an inclusive and collaborative approach to solving tough problems. And I've had 1 cover story for Harvard Business Review (HBR) Magazine is a case study in the crucial role trust plays in creating scale, featuring the TED model.
I come to writing by way of a 25-year career in high tech including Apple and such, where I did go-to-market strategies for about 100 products.
