Drawing on their own business world experiences, the authors of this book explain how corporate actors can overcome the challenges they face by adopting a veritable hands-on and more efficient approach than that of the written and spoken word. Illustrated with photos and diagrams, this practical guide demonstrates how to boldly and rapidly test ideas, trying them out as opposed to deliberating for too long during the planning phase. Although trusty allies, it is not always necessary to invest in a Fab Lab or hire great “tinkerers” to achieve this! Quite the contrary: the authors’ experience proves that it is more effective to bring the actual decision makers face-to-face with hands-on practice. In enabling them to rediscover the role modelling plays in management and innovation, Maquetter shows them how innovation is literally at their fingertips. Thus, in the manager’s toolkit, models help towards bridging the gap between strategy and execution.
