Book Description

Where do the best creative ideas come from? Most managers assume that it's the readily identifiable "creative types" that offer the quickest route to out-of-the-box thinking. Yet, say Dorothy Leonard and Walter Swap, most innovations spring from well-led group interactions. The authors sweep aside conventional thinking about creativity and offer proven strategies for stimulating and directing the group dynamics that lie at the heart of innovative thinking. When Sparks Fly outlines and analyzes each step in the creative process and gives practical suggestions for managing teams. According to Fortune, "The insights in the lively book could turbocharge your team (and maybe even your career)."

Deep Smarts by Dorothy Leonard-Barton Deep Smarts, Hardback (January 2005)

The asset most valuable to your company's future is lost every time an employee leaves the firm. This asset is more than knowledge, and it is more than intelligence - it is "deep smarts". This book focuses on how to cultivate and harness deep smarts so that it stays in the firm, even if your employees don't.

When Sparks Fly by Dorothy Leonard-Barton When Sparks Fly, Hardback (August 1999)

Managers assume that gifted individuals offer the quickest route to new ideas, yet most innovations spring from well-led group interactions. This text focuses on groups of people who may not fit in the stereotype of right-brained "creatives", and offers strategies for generating the right dynamics.
