“Successful business innovation isn’t just about creating the right business systems. It’s about changing the way people think, make decisions and interact; in other words, it’s about culture.” according to author Dennis Stauffer. His latest book, "Thinking Clockwise, A Field Guide for the Innovative Leader" is drawing international attention.

"Thinking Clockwise, A Field Guide for the Innovative Leader" (MinneApplePress 2005) will soon be available in four languages with further translations being negotiated. This brilliantly simple handbook for change agents and anyone wanting to promote innovation and personal creativity has won strong praise from innovation experts, and now interest from foreign publishers.

Authored by Emmy award winning journalist and former business editor, Dennis Stauffer, "Thinking Clockwise" offers a uniquely powerful strategy for innovative thinking and leadership to promote innovation. Stauffer notes, “These concepts have been embraced by some of the largest global companies based in the U.S. and given the lead the U.S. has in innovation, it’s not surprising that business leaders in other countries would be interested.”

Among those who have praised "Thinking Clockwise" is Art Fry, 3M Corporate Scientist and Inventor of Post-it Notes, who writes, “'Thinking Clockwise' is concise, easy to read, and packed with insights, wisdom and examples of how people think and why some environments facilitate change while others poison it.”

In addition to English, "Thinking Clockwise" will soon be available in Spanish (Mexico), Hebrew (Israel), and Bahasa (Indonesia) with other foreign rights pending. In it, Stauffer explores “Clockwise Thinking” a simple metaphor for a revolutionary approach to creating and implementing valuable ideas. He then builds on that foundation to explain the essential characteristics of “Innovative Leadership,” strategies and techniques that encourage growth, promote innovation, and enhance performance at all levels.

"Thinking Clockwise" is available in bookstores and online at For additional information or to request a review copy, contact Dennis Stauffer or visit
