ABSTRACT
The old idea that innovation begins at the top of an organization is not conducive to managing a productive and successful company. Instead, leaders should be encouraging innovation in all layers of their organizations. In CATS: The Nine Lives of Innovation, author and management consultant Stephen C. Lundin provides nine strategies for helping organizations encourage innovation from all members. CATS is a term Lundin has invented for innovative employees. Organizations that provide one or more of the Nine Lives that Lundin says are necessary for creating an innovative environment, and recognize and acknowledge the four challenge to innovation, are more likely than others to succeed.
