Idea Storm's top rated articles - 31 July 2020

I have had excellent guests on my podcast Exponential Organisations and they produce amazing content.

I would like to thank them for giving their time to chat to me (and to you if you are a listener of the podcast) and have therefore created a 'Friends' page on my website where you can access their fantastic content.

Here are three selected articles for you to enjoy. The rest can be found on the Friends page.

1. Innosight

  • Cooperation with previously unlikely partners proffers a more effective means to generate collective new gains.
