Beschreibungen

"An innovative book for an innovative topic." Charles Hampden-Turner Like the subject matter it covers, Clusters of Creativity is innovative and original. It breaks with popular interpretations of Silicon Valley and similar regions, which range from the hyperbolically laudatory to the contemptuously dismissive, and takes a critical, objective look at the lessons that these locations provide about innovation and entrepreneurship. Readable, yet rigorous in its analyses, the book provides a practical and balanced set of perspectives on how the powers of business creativity are fostered and sustained. It focuses not so much on the generations of high technologies but on the motivations and strategies of business leaders who turn revolutionary innovations into commercial realities. Clusters of Creativity demystifies the many enigmas that surround two leading capitals of the modern global economy, providing insights on managing innovation and entrepreneurship that are both eye-opening and broadly applicable to all organizations and industries. Clusters of Creativity will challenge assumptions, dispel myths, enlighten, inspire, and generally provoke thought. In an age where technology and hyperbole frequently go hand-in-hand, the book's well-founded insights are all the more refreshing and important.

It is an old adage that "fortune favours the prepared mind", that in many cases the elements of a creativity synthesis just "happened to be there". It is Koepp's valuable contribution that he assembles all such clustering dynamics and makes coherent "the gale of creativity destruction" that has puzzled us all. An innovative book for an innovative topic. Dr Charles Hampden-Turner, Cambridge University Every so often one is lucky enough to be at the center of the world while it still is the center of the world. Being in Silicon Valley during the 1990s was certainly just that. Such centers produce a flowering of creativity that can only occur when the air becomes so turbulent that ideas, which in normal times would just be fleeting fantasies, get up and fly. Clusters of Creativity captures this anti-gravitational feeling perfectly. Rich Gold, Former Director of RED, Xerox PARC
