Share Your Insights for a Chance to win an autographed copy of the best-selling book The New Polymath

[tweetmeme source=@LouisColumbus only_single=false]

Vinnie Mirchandani’s book The New Polymath: Profiles in Compound-Technology Innovations is the best one I’ve read in years on how to unlock creativity and innovation, not just in companies but in ourselves.   A polymath is by definition a person who excels at several different areas of study.

This book is a journey through the modern landscape of polymaths, from the innovation at General Electric to clean tech, to an excellent analysis of how social networks are changing CRM.  There are many more areas covered including guidance on changing organizations to be more creative and innovative.    Well balanced with case studies of companies creating innovative processes, products and perspectives that are changing entire industries, this book delivers fascinating insights.

Winning is Easy, Just Share Your Insights

I have a passion for teaching and enjoy helping students.

I have noticed that at the universities I teach at, the social networking applications are out of step with student needs.  This contest focuses on creative, innovative ways to bridge this gap. Send in as many ideas as you want to each question and the best response to each will win an autographed, personalized copy of Vinnie Mirchandani’s book.
