Reading list for Innovation Strategists & Consultants

At LHBS, we believe in the diversity of people and the creative clash of perspectives and backgrounds. We believe that this @@diversity is key to developing better and more robust ideas and strategies.@@ We like to call this explosive collaboration.  To utilize these diverse backgrounds we think it’s equally important to have a common base. You could see us as a collection of generalists with expertise in specific fields.



We have created the following reading list to make it easier for people who are interested in joining LHBS to align with our way of thinking.  For those interested in applying for an open position at LHBS, this reading list serves as a suggested preparation for your application and possible interview. Apart from that, it is a list of recommendations for anyone else seeking to develop their knowledge of the intersection of culture, business and strategy.

The reading list consists of books and articles that we consider important and useful for our everyday work at LHBS. It also includes a short list of blogs that regularly cover relevant topics and perspectives.

Enjoy reading.
