Innovation is a buzz word that has traversed climes with a somewhat generational excitement. However, most times it lacks comprehensiveness in its composition and meaning. Every innovation has an ovation, which means an enthusiastic applause of approval. In creativity terms, it represents an opportunity for applause by humanity and to spur uncommon development in all spheres. There is also a relationship in meaning and application. Any wonder Ralph Waldo Emerson says that each man is a hero and an oracle, just as Nathaniel Hawthorne believes that every individual has a place to fill in the world? Literature is replete with feats that represent a new genre of innovation perspective to be described as ovation. You will:
• Learn about leaders who are examples of ovation in innovation.
• Discover ovation creativity techniques and models, such as Constructive Controversy; leadership be-attitudes; Fall, Fail & Rise (FFR); Exploration-Exploitation ambidexterity, and creative flexibility.
• Appreciate exercises that will ignite and reawaken your ovation instinct.
