Disrupt Together is part of Philadelphia University's breakthrough approach to innovation: one that links business, design and engineering, and delivers extraordinary results in both new and existing ventures. First, Dr. Stephen Spinelli and Heather McGowan introduce this "Disrupt Together" approach, explain its deep roots in design thinking, and show how it generates far more high-value ideas for innovation. Next, Sarah Singer-Nourie drills down to focus specifically on the process of leading, coaching, and managing a dynamic team of intentional disrupters.
Singer-Nourie shows how to build teams that explicitly transcend your field of knowledge, leverage colleague perspectives, and create innovations with truly explosive impact. She introduces powerful tools for leading high-impact teams, maintaining focus and perspective, managing and understanding expectations, mitigating the challenges of pressure, and knowing when and how to reset your team's focus and energy for maximum performance.
Sarah's chapter: Your Team Dynamics and the Dynamics of Your Team is one of 15 addressing all facets of innovation, from design processes and team development to business models and value delivery. Each is crafted by a pioneering business innovator – and they all integrate into today's most coherent, realistic blueprint for innovation. For all entrepreneurs, executives, managers, strategists, and students who want to drive more value from innovation.
