Braden Kelley on why and how to stroke your innovation bonfire

Oct 7, 2010

Braden Kelley has just released a great new book on the subject or organizational innovation.I first met Braden on Twitter (he tweets as @innovate), and even in that constricted environment of 140 characters or less, the quality of the information he provides was clearly outstanding.

So when I heard that he was bringing out a new book, Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire: A Roadmap to a Sustainable Culture of Ingenuity and Purpose, I knew I had to (a) get the book, and (b) get Braden on to our interview series. So here goes!
