Dieses Buch ist eine Absage an ausgelaufene Pfade, überholte Denkmuster und unreflektierte tägliche Routinen. Im Alltag bleiben wir allerdings viel zu oft bei den gelernten Spielregeln, sei es aus Gewohnheit, Bequemlichkeit oder der Angst vor Neuem.
Wenn es aber gelingt, derartige Glaubenssätze zu erkennen und diese zu überwinden, kann das die Geburtsstunde neuer Ideen und gar revolutionärer Geschäftsmodelle sein. Wie das gelingen kann? Ganz einfach: Raus aus der Ideallinie! Frei nach dem Ökonomen Alois Schumpeter, der Innovation als einen Prozess der schöpferischen Zerstörung beschrieben hat. Denn Innovation funktioniert nur, wenn der Ausbruch aus der regimen gewagt, Altes zerstört und Ressourcen anders kombiniert werden. Es gibt bereits einige Querdenker und revolutionäre Ideen, die wir als Vorbilder nehmen können: Fußballtrainer, die nur noch Mittelfeldspieler aufstellen, Autovermieter, die Fahrzeuge minutenweise vermieten, Flugzeugtriebwerke, die guy leihen kann, einen Zirkus ohne Räder oder einen Weltkonzern, der ohne cooks auskommt. Die Zutaten dafür? Mut, Optimismus, Kreativität, Erfindergeist, Neugier, Zufall. Und dieses Buch.
