“This thought-provoking book offers important insights”

 

Booklistx300Full review from Booklist, January 2014

“Berger emphasizes the power of inquiry as he challenges us to see things with a fresh eye. He concentrates on game-changing questions, those that can result in actions that lead to real results. The author focuses on innovation and invention stories, explaining that in business, questions challenge authority and disrupt established structures, processes, and systems, forcing people to at least consider something different. Berger offers his framework for problem solving in three stages. The initial “why” stage involves seeing and understanding, which include noticing what others missed and challenging both our own and others’ assumptions. The second, “what-if,” stage is about imagining that blue-sky moment of questioning when anything is possible; and the third, the “how to” action stage, is about doing. Asking the right questions will help us discover what matters, what opportunities exist, and how to find them. This thought-provoking book offers important insights to executives, and to those aspiring to leadership, for their business and personal use.”
