Do you want to take your business to the next level, but don’t know where to start?

Boardroom Creativity advocates a creative yet practical approach for leaders who want to re-imagine and innovate their business for success – at board level and beyond. Packed with exercises and examples, and using the nine tried-and-tested principles that underpin successful business transformation, this book will enable you to:

- Recognise the key drivers of change for your business
- Identify the shared purpose and values of your organization to accelerate transformation
- Involve and empower internal and external stakeholders
- Design and safeguard the future of your business to cope with change and uncertainty
- Create an innovation culture and lead by example
- Redesign your board to stay future-proof

"Boardroom Creativity is a very useful guide when you know it's time for something different but you're not sure where to start. It gives a clear process and practical tools on how to design your future direction, leadership development, and even create your board." - Lino Tedeschi, Chairman and CEO of TESYA Group, Milan, Italy

"Boards are at the forefront of guiding organizational renewal to handle the unprecedented amount of change in the world. This book shares insights for how to approach innovation from board level and shows why you need to rethink your board work to stay future-proof." - Liselotte Engstam, Chair and Board Director, Researcher and Advisor, Stockholm, Sweden

"This is a book for those looking for inspiration on creative business development that also recognizes the importance of fair processes. I recommend it warmly." - Ludo Van der Heyden, INSEAD Chaired Professor Emeritus in Corporate Governance, Fontainebleau, France

Today's complex business challenges require a creative approach that goes beyond brainstorming, and the examples and exercises inspired me to try out new ways of working." - Kerstin Stranimaier, Global Strategic Marketing Director of Huntsman Corporation, Basel, Switzerland

"Creativity is like energy or oxygen - you only realize how important it is when it's absent. Boardroom Creativity shows how to translate the abstract world of imagination and dreams into tangible realities. Creativity is what makes the progress of mankind possible." - Arash Aazami, Entrepreneur, System Innovator and Energy Transition Expert, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

“Boardroom Creativity demonstrates how powerful it is to bring creative people into the process when developing the direction of your business.” - Charlotte Møller-Andersen, Vice President Nordics & Benelux Zendesk, Copenhagen, Denmark
