Program Topics

  • How to Adapt to a Changing World

    The world of business is changing just as rapidly as the world beyond it. Iny’s strategies help individuals and organizations adapt to this change and leverage it into a new, growth-focused perspective.

  • Leading with Creativity

    Sometimes it’s not enough to encourage teams to “think outside the box.” Iny encourages organizations to go beyond the cliché and approach their work with a new sense of creativity that is both innovative and actionable.

Thinking in New Boxes

“To make sense of the world, we all rely on assumptions, on models—on what Alan Iny and co-author Luc de Brabandere call “boxes.” If we are unaware of our boxes, they can blind us to risks and opportunities. This innovative book challenges everything you thought you knew about business creativity by breaking creativity down into five steps. Creativity is paramount if you are to thrive in a time of accelerating change. Replete with practical and potent creativity tools, and featuring fascinating case studies from BIC to Ford to Trader Joe’s, Thinking in New Boxes will help you and your company overcome missed opportunities and stay ahead of the curve. This book isn’t a simpleminded checklist. This is Thinking in New Boxes.

Thinking in New Boxes

“Brilliantly original and relentlessly practical, Thinking in New Boxes brings a truly fresh approach to the eternal question of how do I get more—and better—ideas. It not only challenges the readers to ‘think differently,’ but also shows them how. It is that rare business book actually worth reading cover to cover.”

—Jim Andrew, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, Chairman Sustainability Board, EVP and Member of the Executive Committee, Royal Philips

Thinking in New Boxes is a five-step guide that leverages the authors’ deep understanding of human nature to enable readers to overcome their limitations and both imagine and create their own futures. This book is a must-read for people living and working in today’s competitive environment.”

—Ray O. Johnson, PhD, chief technology officer, Lockheed Martin
