Headwinds of Opportunity

A Compass for Sustainable Innovation

“Headwinds of Opportunity” goes beyond philosophical and academic discussion of business sustainability to offer strategic guidance regarding how-to make all types of organizations function more sustainably while simultaneously improving their competitiveness.  It differs from other references in that it approaches sustainability as an innovation – an innovative way of conducting business. The book is informed by time-tested principles of innovation diffusion that can be effectively applied to drive change. It places considerable emphasis on the “how-to” aspects of sustainability improvement and how they can be used to increase effectiveness.
