Looking for ways to be more innovative in your business, career, or life? Dr. Max McKeown, behavioral strategist and globally recognized innovation expert, award winning author, and speaker discusses how to make innovation practical. His research and topics focus on strategy, innovation, adaptability, and always moving forward. Max was also one of the first Imperfect Action guests (episode 006). In this episode, we discuss:
- His newest book, “The Innovator’s Book” and the thinking around the unique design and format,
- The three jobs of the innovator.
- What gets in the way of innovation.
- The often overlooked people side of innovation.
I am a big fan of Max’s books and always appreciate his ability to take huge ideas, back them with academic research, and then share them in a way that is engaging, easy to understand, and real world practical.

This episode is sponsored by NutriFitt. I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality.

It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.
