Fusion - High-Value Lateral Innovation


In science, the fusion of two nuclei into a new, combined nucleus releases a massive amount of energy (nuclear fusion). Likewise, a Fusion in business, technology, and the arts can release a massive amount of value and create whole new companies, industries, & human capabilities. But how?

Fusion is a new model of lateral innovation, based on an in-depth study of 30 world-class cross-domain innovators (“Fusioneers”). Collectively, they have created billions of dollars' worth of business value, improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, and generated new advances in the arts and sciences aimed at even more. With inspiration and proven approaches from their lives, we can all increase our mental diversity and creative capability, as well as leading and fostering Fusion in employees, teams, and organizations.
