About the book

"The Dynamics Of Ideas That Create History"
Orbit-shifting innovation happens when an area that needs transformation meets an innovator with the will and the desire to create, and not follow, history. At the heart of every orbit-shifting innovation is the breakthrough that achieves a transformative impact.

Businesses, social enterprises and even governments need orbit-shifting ideas to create a transformative impact. But how does that ground breaking idea come about, and what translates it into actuality? Charting the vast global landscape of orbit-shifting innovation and using unique examples from prominent businesses, the social sector, entrepreneurs and public services - spread across US, UK, Europe, Africa and Asia - the authors build insight into the key drivers behind taking on a transformative challenge and provide a unique framework to navigate the pitfalls and challenges in making it happen.

Orbit-shifting innovation empowers everyone to overcome the obstacles to innovation and provides the tools to maximize the impact of transformative change. The inspirational examples and tools for success compel leaders and entrepreneurs to not only pursue impossible challenges but lead the successful journey from conception of an orbit-shifting idea to actually creating history.

More about Devika Devaiah

Devaiah & Narang's new book is an utterly fresh take on the urgent topic of disruptive innovation. The planetary metaphor of gravity and orbits frames a lively exploration of hidden forces (cultural gravity of arrogance/subservience) and surprising allies (lateral thinking). The authors share an inspiring diversity of first-hand case examples, from cataract surgery to TV quiz shows, and cultural backdrops ranging from Korea to Hindustan. You'll come away not only believing it can be done, but knowing how you can do it.
