Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Trumping the Red Queen: Using a new card from the deck of creativity and innovation, a new book authored by Ralph M. Frid, Ph.D.
Laced with detailed examples and graphs, Trumping the Red Queen is a comprehensive guide that examines ways to overcome the obstacles and complexity of innovation. It describes how a new form of adult learning can be used to enhance creative output in ways that promotes the survival of small groups that compete in challenging markets.
Trumping the Red Queen is composed of three specific parts. Part One explains how the character and history of innovation is one that has many fascinating turns and twists. The historical perspective shows how a journey into creativity is similar to taking a trip down a “rabbit hole” of innovation. Just like Alice, many who have made the journey found that Wonderland wasn’t as orderly and stable as they expected; Part Two explains how elements of learning, creativity, and human behavior can be used to trump the disorder and chaos which are often associated with innovative pursuits; and Part Three demonstrates how the trump card can be used to improve the creative potential of a small group – any small group, or even the potential of many groups that operate within a large organization. The reader is inspired to see just how a new form of learning can combine with creativity to vastly improve an organization’s ability to survive in today’s complex and chaotic world.
