520    This book explores five cultural traits -- Diversity, 
       Integrity, Curiosity, Reflection, and Connection -- that 
       encourage the birth and successful development of new 
       ideas, and shows how organizations that are serious about 
       innovation can embrace them. Innovation -- the driver of 
       change and resilience -- It is totally dependent on 
       culture, the social environment which shapes how ideas 
       emerge and evolve. Ideas need to breathe, and culture 
       determines the quality of the air. If it's stuffy and 
       lacks flow, then no idea, however brilliant, will live 
       long enough to fulfil its potential. Creating these 
       innovation-friendly conditions is one of the key 
       challenges facing organizations today, and one that is 
       especially difficult for them -- focused as they are on 
       efficiency and control. Innovation, Anna Simpson argues, 
       begins with diversity of thought and attitude: the 
       opposite of conformity and standardisation. Likewise, with
       ongoing pressures to deliver results before yesterday, how
       can organizations allow sufficient space for the seemingly
       aimless process of following interesting possibilities and
       pondering on the impact of various options? Anna Simpson 
       shows how large organizations can adapt their culture to 
       enable the exchange of different perspectives; to support 
       each person to bring their whole self to their work; to 
       embrace the aimlessness that fosters creative 
       experimentation; to take the time to approach change with 
       the care it deserves, and -- lastly -- to develop the 
       collective strength needed to face the ultimate 
       'sledgehammer test'.
