    How many presentations on innovation have there been recently? Thousands? Millions? We are experiencing "innovation fatigue": we feel cheated by the endless rounds of consultants who come into our organizations, deliver conceptual models that don't stick with the realities of business, and then leave again. Companies and teams are left feeling more deflated than before, and with not one idea that's impacted the bottom line. Innovation for the Fatigued argues it is worth fighting for the concept and study of innovation in organizations.
