Since the publication of THE MEDICI EFFECT, its ideas have become foundational to innovation, creativity and diversity. Today, research papers, books and articles from all over the world cite its theories, while innovation thought leaders have expanded or built on its principles. One of my intellectual heroes—Clay Christensen—not only said the book was “one of the most insightful books on managing innovation” that he has ever read, but that it also supports some of his ideas on innovation (primarily The Innovator’s DNA). Thousands of organizations worldwide have incorporated intersectional thinking into everything from strategy and marketing to HR and innovation.
