In this second volume of Breakthrough: From Innovation to Impact, we continue to look at examples of how innovation has shaped our world, from technology to science to politics using a new series of case studies and interviews.
These include how Paul Polman reshaped Unilever, F.W. de Klerk used his South African experience to help other countries, and Jan Peter Balkenende put innovation at the heart of his programme as Prime Minister of The Netherlands.
We also examine the idea of the circular economy, reveal how a family firm can survive and prosper in the era of multinational giants, and show how innovative projects have transformed healthcare in the United States and The Netherlands.
In all these case studies we apply The Owls’ unique formulae to analyse the root causes of successful innovation and explain how they can work for anyone.
