And creativity is not a gift for the chosen few—it is a process that can be learned.

In his book Risk Savvy, Professor Gerd Gigerenzer shows us all how we can make better decisions by becoming better-informed citizens and able to judge risk for ourselves.

Professor Gigerenzer is Director of the Center for Adapti...

Instead of shooting for a $10 billion IPO or a Nobel Prize, the most prolific innovators focus instead on Big Little Breakthroughs – small creative acts that unlock massive rewards over time. By building a daily habit of creativity, organizations not only enjoy a high volume of small wins, but the daily practice of micro-innovations is the fastest route to discover the massive breakthroughs we seek. In his new book ‘Big Little Brea...

Studies show us that companies earn higher margins, inspire greater client loyalty, attract and retain the best talent, and gain a competitive edge when their people collaborate across functional boundaries. Yet most firms have carved up their highly specialized, professional experts into narrowly defined practice areas, and collaborating across these silos is often messy, risky, and expensive. These are just some of the challenges...

In Expert, he combines his own experiences as a ...
