They explore in a series of stories narrated by three different people, how executives can drive high-performing investments in innovation and change, by starting with a new approach to their management of IT and ending with a strategy for Enterprise Investment. In keeping with Chris's groundbreaking approaches and strategy background, they are written using scenario planning techniques, film-making theory, and other influences.
