Innovating Emergent Futures

The Innovation Design Approach for Change and Worldmaking

A Book that Disrupts Innovation

It is with great joy that we present the innovation book: Innovating Emergent Futures - The Innovation Design Approach for Change and Worldmaking. A book born of immense frustration from superficial approaches to creativity and innovation. This book challenges all the standard assumptions about creativity, innovation and design and offers an entirely new approach to radical innovation as novel worldmaking.

“Innovating Emergent Futures is a hands on approach, and a set of tools and practices that delivers novel paradigm shifts, transforms thinking, fosters an innovation culture, produces radically creative outcomes, disrupts fields, and empowers you to make new worlds possible — it is a total re-invention of innovation”
~ Petia Morozov founder of Design Shed

Yes, it's a Real Book – for Innovation!

Tired of wasting time and money buying 300-page business and innovation books that should have been at most a 20-page blog post?

We’ve been there many times — so we get it — the world of business and innovation books is a wasteland of overhyped filler and pointless cliches delivered with that fake Ted-talk world changing profundity.

Innovating Emergent Futures is not another one of those self-aggrandizing innovation books. It is loaded with actionable insights that will empower any project, company or organization to disruptively innovate, develop novel worlds and solutions, and embed an ecosystem of innovation across an organization.

Backed by Innovation Science

Innovating Emergent Futures is more than a book about innovation. It’s jam-packed with historical and philosophical understandings of innovation and creativity leveraging scientific insights from Embodied Cognition, Complex Systems Theory, New Materialism, Evolutionary Theory, the Ontological Turn in Anthropology and much more to actually make you a more impactful innovator.

The book doubles as an innovation workbook. Walking you step by step through the award winning innovation Design Approach providing an in-depth blueprint for you the reader to co-evolve novel innovations, paradigmatic change and a transformative differentiation.

“Their approach to innovation is truly transformative and has a profound and lasting impact” 
~ Dennis Bone, former President of Verizon New Jersey


20+ Years of Innovation Research

Yes we teach at a university, but this book is not the product of academic studies far removed from the real world. This is what we’ve learnt in the field. We’ve prototyped countless versions of it globally over the last decade, and built it on 20+ years of cutting-edge field research, testing, and development - it has been used to transformatively engage the most vexing challenges of the 21st century, develop alternative business models, and new fields of possibility.

How Can this Innovation Book Help You?

Everyone agrees that innovation is the pillar of a successful business. 

And there are many innovation management books out there that focus on the importance of innovation. They focus on the principles of innovation. The virtues of an innovative organization. That innovation can diffuse and insulate an endeavor from its competitors. And many take the easy way out focusing on ideation.

We agree – all of these points and elements of innovation are critical to an organization's success. 

But the majority of these innovation books don’t answer the question they leave us asking: how do you innovate? 

Innovating Emergent Futures is the answer. It’s how to innovate.

It’s practical innovation methods are based on philosophy, backed by science and offer an innovation process consisting of a series of tasks, tools, and questions to innovate. Anything. Products, services, social challenges, climate crisis’, and beyond. 

The Innovation Design Approach is an innovation playbook for teams and organizations that don’t want to talk about the importance of innovation. They want to innovate novel solutions to their most vexing problems.
