- Frost & Sullivan Growth, Innovation and Leadership Advisory Board Member Doug Collins releases Volume 2 of "Innovation Architecture"

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, today announced that Doug Collins, a member of the Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) Global Board of Advisors, released Volume 2 of "Innovation Architecture: A New Blueprint for Engaging People through Collaborative Innovation." This is a continuation of Collins' visionary perspective on the subject of accelerating corporate growth through best practices in collaborative innovation.

"People bring many gifts to the table, including their ideas," said Collins. "The practice of collaborative innovation gives them new opportunities to innovate transparently and collaborate seamlessly. The organizations that thrive in the Digital Age will be the ones that find ways to embrace the practice."

Volume 2, which aligns with the visionary innovation Doug pursues each month in Frost & Sullivan's GIL Community Newsletter, addresses what it means to help people realize their potential for leadership through their practice of collaborative innovation. Doug explored this critical question in his work on the nebulous front end of innovation with a wide range of Fortune 1000 clients over the past 20 years.

"True innovation exists not in what we know, but in what we discover as we step outside into a world of unknown solutions and unmet needs," said Frost & Sullivan Vice President and Global Head of GIL Brian Denker. "It begins with an idea that emerges out of one's collective ability to share ideas and engage others near and far, which truly inspires new ways of thinking. Doug's approach toward 'how' one can truly become a visionary innovator is not just an interesting read, but a testament of his own journey as a visionary, innovator and leader. This is showcased through his proactive support and thought leadership contributions to GIL Global, our unique and growing community of senior executives focused on addressing global challenges through accelerating growth, inspiring innovation and fostering best-in-class leadership."

Volume 2 offers a blueprint for pursuing collaborative innovation. The blueprint provides collaborative innovation program leaders a way to tell their story and share the vision for the practice on a page.

"Innovation Architecture: A New Blueprint for Engaging People through Collaborative Innovation" is available on Amazon Kindle and the Apple iBookstore marketplaces, worldwide.
