THE WILD IDEA CLUB will help you get there, by providing managers with an easy, step-by-step approach that harnesses the collective genius of their people to drive innovation, improve efficiency and increase morale. In tough times like these - with managers facing increasing pressure to get more done with fewer people and less money - encouraging employees to work together to tackle tough issues on their own is not a luxury, but a survival tool. When people start seeing possibilities instead of problems - and can present their solutions to decision-makers who care - something amazing happens: They find themselves actually working together toward a common goal that benefits everyone and their organization. THE WILD IDEA CLUB is a guide, a method and a tool that provides: * Everything a manager needs to get a Wild Idea Club (or three) up and running in his or her organization - and keep it going. * Tips and techniques to help your people generate ideas and select the best ones. * The best ways to capture, record, research and follow through on the solutions generated by a Wild Idea Club. * Strategies to help your people pitch their ideas and much more.
Written in a loose and light style, each chapter presents one facet of the concept, illustrated through a story based on real-life examples of Wild Idea Clubs in action. This book will help anyone learn exactly what's needed to create a club in his or her company, no matter its industry, size or history.
