Her best-selling book (Dutton Penguin) on Thomas Edison’s innovation methods was endorsed by the New York Times, Fortune Small Business, USA Today, 800-CEO-READ, and Investor’s Business Daily. The book, entitled Innovate Like Edison: The FIve-Step System for Breakthrough Business Success reveals Edison’s systematic yet timeless approach to innovation in a format that allows any employee, in any industry, with any level of experience to begin implementing what I call Edison’s Five Competencies of Innovation(tm). The book was researched over a 3-year period, and endorsed by the world’s leading expert on Edison today, Dr. Paul Israel at Rutgers University. Edison’s Five Competencies bring innovation best practices within reach of any organization. The competencies offer a roadmap for how to generate an innovation mindset within every employee – not just teams in R&D, Engineering, or Marketing. All leaders and employees today need to “think like innovators,” helping to move their companies to the leading edge in their industry. For more information on Sarah, visit her website.
