BOOST O2 >> BUSINESS MANAGEMENT > A selection of new books from the CMI Library



Buy-InBuy-In, John Kotter.      The authors reveal how to come to the rescue of good ideas by winning the support needed to protect good ideas so that they can survive. A fictional narrative is presented through which the authors demonstrate how to respectfully engage objectors and adversaries with convincing responses. A five-point strategy for fending off attacks on ideas is presented. The core of the strategy is respect and respecting people who are offering comments or asking questions that can undermine support. The authors argue that by anticipating the attack strategies used by detractors they can be turned to your advantage. The book is divided into two parts. Part one demonstrates how an idea is saved by using the counter intuitive strategies promoted in the book. The second part goes into detail about four ways in which good ideas are killed, twenty-four attacks and twenty-four responses, and a quick-reference guide for saving good ideas.

The concepts are grouped into six categories; process, money, people, internal structures, customer and partner interfaces and innovation and strategy. The book includes stories of the management innovators at the centre of these concepts.
