This project presents the process I used to write the book proposal for The Innovators: How Creative Mavericks Solve Tough Business Problems. Acquisitions editor, Edward Stone, invited me to write a book on organizational creativity. Although a few older books are on the market, my book presents a comprehensive view of creativity with two parts. Part 1 covers the creative process, and Part 2 teaches the creative methods. I used mind maps to organize each chapter of the book proposal. The final outcome of the Master’s project is the table of contents that I submitted to Edward Stone and the book proposal we are submitting to Business Expert Press in May 2020.
