Tuck professors Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble have written a new parable on innovation – How Stella Saved the Farm - a fun yet practical read on executing on innovation in the enterprise.  The book details the heroic efforts of a small business farm facing changes on many fronts: technology, talent management, leadership changes, and more.  Written in a simple format, the issues addressed are anything but, and applicable to many different real life situations. If your organization struggles with how to effectively execute on innovative ideas, then the Stella community has answers.

There are several ways to join the Stella community and conversation about how to implement innovation effectively within your own team, visit the Stella Farm Community page, the entry point for ongoing community engagement and learning around How Stella Saved the Farm. Web chats, discussion forums, learning tools, blog posts, and more.

Join co-author Chris Trimble in a live web chat on Tuesday, May 14 from 1-2 EST: How Teams are Using Teams to Innovate in New Ways or listen to the recorded March 13th web chat (topic: "Why I Wish there was No "I" in Innovate").

How Stella Saved the Farm also has a microsite for more information about the book, including tips on how to get a discussion going with your team and what impact these innovation lessons can have on your organization.

No matter how you choose to engage with the Stella community, we hope you realize that Innovation is a team sport and Chris and VG's 20 years of research on the subject make them among the world's best coaches.
