The Refractive Thinker® Press is proud to present: The Refractive Thinker®: Volume V: Strategy in Innovation

Las Vegas, NV, November 22, 2010 – The Refractive Thinker® Press celebrates the accomplishments of the doctoral scholars contained within the pages of their fifth volume: Strategy in Innovation (208 pages, $34.99 paper book, $16.95 e-book, $3.95 individual e-chapters). The intent is to provide a forum for these authors to share their thoughts and expertise as they contribute to our expanse of knowledge in pursuits of the tenets of and philosophies of higher learning. These individual contributions included a Peer Review Board.

The title of this series, The Refractive Thinker® was chosen intentionally to describe a new way of thinking.  As a society, we often find ourselves between the dichotomies of either thinking within the box (thinking) or outside of the box (critical thinking). The Refractive Thinker® introduces the concept of refractive thinking – thinking beyond the box, perhaps even building a new box entirely.  As a result, this series highlights the ability of these doctoral scholars to bend thought, to converge its very essence on the ability to obliquely pass through the perspective of another. The goal is to ask and ponder the right questions; to dare to think differently, to find new applications within unique and cutting edge dimensions, ultimately to lead where others may follow or to risk forging perhaps a new path entirely.

The goal of this series is to provide additional guidance one might need as a citizen of the world.  For Volume V, these scholars and authors provide readers with new lenses with which to explore ambiguity and to navigate turbulent waters offering new paths to success.  Topics will include scenario planning, leadership strategies and tools for innovation, disruption of innovation, gender, change management, and educational concerns currently affecting the business landscape.  Discover additional answers to consider and the many pearls of wisdom offered within these pages.

The Refractive Thinker® Press presents this collection of the works of ten scholarly authors affiliated with various institutions of higher learning to include topics such as: Innovation Out of Turbelence: Scenario and Survival Plans that Utilizes Groups and the Wisdom of Crowds (Dr. Elmer Hall);   Tools to Forecast Technological Innovations and Strategies (Dr. Lois d. Wiley Anderson); The Next Disruptive Innovation: Can  You Imagine a World Without Intel?

T. Pugh); Change Models and 21st Century organizations: An Epistemic Journey to Creative Innovation (Dr. Beverly Carter & Dr. Beverly Hernandez<); Innovative Recommendations for Assisting Homeless Students (Dr. Denise Thomas).
