Stephan Scholtissek, the global managing director for growth and strategy in Accenture’s Global Resources Operating Group, understands how innovation works and why it matters. He communicates its importance firmly and clearly through an array of examples, drawing on firms as varied as BP and Perrier. He demonstrates innovation’s centrality to the energy and natural resources sector, though his arguments are applicable to all industries.

In this summary, you will learn
