The Dictionary Of Dangerous Ideas is a collection of the most challenging concepts facing business leaders at the dawn of the 21st century.
At the intersection of emerging technologies and new patterns of human behavior, the ideas in the Dictionary have been chosen for both their potential to transform the way companies operate, and inspire new forms of thinking.
Global futurist and innovation expert Mike Walsh presents 88 scientific breakthroughs, emerging technologies and disruptive business models – all with the potential to shake the foundations of the world we know.
Each of the ideas are concisely explained in a single page, with references to the latest case studies and research, as well as one of Walsh’s characteristic ‘Mind Grenade’ questions to prompt further discussion. Fully illustrated with a custom typographic alphabet and original black and white photographs – The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas is the essential companion for any leader who wants to understand what it will take to survive and thrive in the near future.
Mike Walsh, futurist speaker, author of Futuretainment and CEO of innovation research agency Tomorrow, helps to prepare business leaders for what’s next.
Everything is changing. All the traditional industries we grew up with – media, communication, finance, professional services and retail – are all in the process of being turned upside down and re-invented. The force behind this revolution is not technology but rather consumer behaviour. After all, as interesting as it is when things change, the real magic happens when people do.
