Description : Leadership for Innovation takes a look at organizations’ desire to make innovation every employee’s responsibility and teaches organizational leaders to create an innovative climate.

Employee-driven innovation does not happen naturally, or by relaying on traditional management tools and approaches. Organizational leaders must possess the necessary innovation skills to develop and implement crosscutting innovation-support systems and practices. With over 10 years of experience focusing on designing workforce innovation-support systems, David Masumba shares strategies and policies that help companies create a climate of innovation. Leadership for Innovation offers tools that organizational leaders across industries, individuals aspiring to assume leadership roles, and undergraduate and graduate students can apply to develop essential innovation skill sets and bring themselves or their company to a whole new level.

Description : "The book I had been waiting for. I can't recommend it highly enough." —Bill Gates The era of autonomous weapons has arrived. Today around the globe, at least thirty nations have weapons that can search for and destroy enemy targets all on their own. Paul Scharre, a leading expert in next-generation warfare, describes these and other high tech weapons systems—from Israel’s Harpy drone to the American submarine-hunting robot ship Sea Hunter—and examines the legal and ethical issues surrounding their use. “A smart primer to what’s to come in warfare” (Bruce Schneier), Army of None engages military history, global policy, and cutting-edge science to explore the implications of giving weapons the freedom to make life and death decisions. A former soldier himself, Scharre argues that we must embrace technology where it can make war more precise and humane, but when the choice is life or death, there is no replacement for the human heart.
