Read Weirdos welcome, Purposeful change, Investment starts from within, and more!
TORONTO, March 8, 2012 /CNW/ - The March/April issue of CMA magazine is now available online at http://cmamagazine.dgtlpub.com/?i=2085. The focus of this issue is on innovation. It isn't just for accountants - it's for anyone in business who enjoys a great read and wants to learn something in the process.
The word innovation has more than 400 million Google hits. But what exactly is it? It's not the wild and crazy let-it-loose concept that you might think. "Paradoxically, innovation - that seemingly chaotic, unpredictable swirl of creativity - flourishes best within a solid framework of highly organized communication and collaboration," writes Graham F. Scott, Toronto-based freelance writer and editor.
"It's what you don't know that you don't know. That's the domain of innovation," says CMA magazine editor-in-chief Mara Gulens.
This issue of CMA magazine will get you thinking about innovation and help you figure out what gets in your way. Here's just a taste of what you'll find:
- Weirdos welcome. Learn how to welcome and plan for new ideas.
- Purposeful change. Discover approaches to spark innovation in your organization.
- Investment starts from within. A global study shows how corporate culture contributes to superior financial performance.
