About this ebook

There’s a lot of talk about business innovation today. Everyone is seeking new or better ways to compete by reaching goals faster, more efficiently, at lower cost. In the race to win, owners and leaders of small to mid-market businesses often miss out on the one area where innovation can be a game changer. It’s the transformation of their people practices: the structures, culture, and processes that support the people who walk through the door everyday.

This book explores how reinvention of a company’s talent strategies from basic (traditional thinking and process) to brilliant (on the leading edge of contemporary thought and practice) can make the difference between stalled momentum and sustainable business growth. In the context of small to midmarket enterprises and entrepreneurial ventures, Basic to Brilliant reveals eight innovation touchpoints, uncovering the essentials for building a brilliant organization where talent thrives and competitive success is realized. Full of tips, strategies, fast facts, how-to’s and real life profiles of small business brilliance, this is the definitive guide for accelerating organizational performance that business owners and leaders can’t be without.
