From the author of The Little Black Book of Innovation, a new guide for using the power of habit to build a culture of innovation

Leaders have experimented with open innovation programs, corporate accelerators, venture capital arms, skunkworks, and innovation contests. They've trekked to Silicon Valley, Shenzhen, and Tel Aviv to learn from today's hottest, most successful tech companies. Yet most would admit they've failed to create truly innovative cultures. There's a better way. And it all starts with the power of habit.

In Eat, Sleep, Innovate, innovation expert Scott Anthony and his impressive team of coauthors use groundbreaking research in behavioral science to provide a first-of-its-kind playbook for empowering individuals and teams to be their most curious and creative—every single day.

Throughout the book, the authors reveal a collection of BEANs—behavior enablers, artifacts, and nudges—they've collected from workplaces across the globe that will unleash the natural innovator inside everyone. In addition to case studies of "normal organizations doing extraordinary things," they provide readers with the tools to create their own hacks and habits, which they can then use to build and sustain their own models of a culture of innovation.

Fun, lively, and utterly unique, Eat, Sleep, Innovate is the book you need to make innovation a natural and habitual act within your team or organization.

Review quote

"The good news is, innovators inside large companies can access the same tools as entrepreneurs," the authors note near the end of the book. "They can combine those tools with hard-earned assets of scale. And that combination can be absolutely magical." After making my way through this enthusiastic yet captivating treatise on the confusing yet ultimately inspiring world of contemporary commerce, I could not agree more. Highly recommended." - Bowling Green Daily News

"Making creativity a habit may seem like a paradox, but that is exactly the case the authors make in Eat, Sleep, Innovate. The timing of the book's release could not have been better. While we have all intuitively understood the need to innovate, COVID-19 has created a world where creativity is an essential pillar for thriving." - TD magazine (Association for Talent Development)

Advance Praise for Eat, Sleep, Innovate:

"If you want to unleash more creativity in your organization, you can't simply tell people what you want; you need to create a culture that emboldens them to behave like innovators. And you need to trust that this is what they want to do. If your goal is to promote new ways of thinking, Eat, Sleep, Innovate is an indispensable guide. I highly recommend it." - Ed Catmull, cofounder, Pixar; retired President, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios; and coauthor, Creativity, Inc.

"Culture change does not come from a wish or a prayer. It can only happen through an orchestrated program that changes and shapes people's behavior. Eat, Sleep, Innovate presents a great way to achieve behavioral change through BEANs. The approach is unconventional but, trust me, it works!" - Piyush Gupta, CEO, DBS Bank

"This dynamic read offers practical exercises and principles you can use to create an environment that fosters innovation and delivers extraordinary results. Eat, Sleep, Innovate expertly blends creative insights with intriguing case studies. I highly recommend it." - James Quincey, Chairman and CEO, The Coca-Cola Company

"Innovation has never been more important. Always motivated by the need to produce new products and services that fuel growth expectations and satisfy ever-shifting customer needs, today's companies must navigate a host of new challenges in the face of the dramatic uncertainty brought on by the global pandemic and widespread social unrest. This compelling and engaging guide serves as a timely and powerful resource for making innovation an organizational habit." - Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School; author, The Fearless Organization

"This book is a wonderful reference on how to craft an innovation culture and help normal organizations do extraordinary things. Use it to unlock your team's innovation power." - Alexander Osterwalder, cofounder and CEO, Strategyzer; bestselling author; and cocreator, the Business Model Canvas
