Summary

"How are you changing my world today?"

The rules of consumer engagement have changed. Your customers no longer care about legacy - what matters to them is how you are innovating into their world today. The classic "solve a problem" approach that industry giants have always employed is no longer relevant. Consumers want switched-on, creative responses to their needs and desires.

In Relentlessly Relevant - 50 Ways to Innovate, professional speaker and business guru Douglas Kruger explores the field of innovation, reducing its subject matter to the simple starting points you need to become an industry trendsetter. It pinpoints the levers within your own business crying out for innovation as well as the bits you should leave alone at all costs, and it teaches you to change your traditional way of thinking, altering how you relate to your customers' immediate reality. Using examples from local and international brands, this book shows you don't have to be a tech giant to innovate, but you do need to know how to think in the right patterns. This is a business imperative. Innovators of today will own their industries tomorrow by constantly asking, "How can we become relentlessly relevant?"

Douglas Kruger is a global speaker and business author. He helps organizations untangle the unexamined thinking that makes them industry dinosaurs and shows them where all the levers are for real-world innovation. In addition to a score of business and growth books with Penguin Random House SA, his latest book on innovation is titled They're Your Rules, Break Them!.

Ok.. If you're a manager

Some good ideas duty a lot of contradictory information and mainly directed to managers. The book is only part a book on innovation, the rest is branding and marketing.

Loved this book

I wasnt familiar with the author and he was positive surprise. Being innovative is very important skill for anyone these days and book offers 50 ways to come up with ideas. Absolute treasure chest for new thinking. Read by the author, performance excellent with few exceptions in the beginning, thus only four stars. Author has a sense of humor, found myself laughing more than few times. Will listen again.
