Melvin's New Leadership Model and Innovation Strategy
Leadership in the 21st century is no longer a fixed role. Today's leadership operates in a fluid, dynamic environment where innovation rules and leadership can come from any direction including outside the group.
Innovation, which is different from invention - developing great ideas, can be defined as ideas applied successfully in practice. Innovation is an important topic in the study of business entrepreneurship design technology sociology engineering.
