							In this follow-up to their bestseller Ideas Are Free, Alan G. Robinson and Dean M. Schroeder show how to align every part of an organization around generating and implementing employee ideas and offer dozens of examples of what a tremendous competitive advantage this can offer. Their advice will enable leaders to build the kind of idea-driven organization capable of implementing 50 to 100 or more ideas per employee per year. Every organization today is being pressed to do more with less. But cutting wages and benefits and pushing people to work harder with fewer resources can go only so far. With Robinson and Schroeder's advice, you can unleash a constant stream of great ideas that will strengthen every facet of your organization.

As leaders, we need to create an environment that effectively draws employee ideas out and empowers implementation. The Idea-Driven Organization provides a practical map on how to get there. - Jeff Nagel, CEO, NBTY Inc.

We're at the end of the age of being able to do more with less based on tired old management models and thinking. To thrive in the new era, organizations will need to be idea driven. Fortunately, Robinson and Schroeder have written a must-read guide for leaders looking to make this transformation. - Chip R. Bell, Coautho, Knock Your Socks Off Serv. and Managers as Mentors
