Unleash Your Potential to Do Bigger Things

AUSTIN, Texas — For the world’s problem-solvers, finding impactful solutions is not just a skill, it’s a calling.

But as time goes on, the problems become increasingly complex, and solutions become harder to create. How do we deal with urban poverty? How is AI going to transform medicine? How can my company survive the next 10 years?

Complex problems require complex solutions, and innovators. Dan McClure and Jennifer Wilde have spent their careers dedicated to these complex solutions. In their book “Do Bigger Things” (Fast Company Press) they offer a practical way to set bolder goals, understand harder challenges and design more powerful solutions.

“‘Do Bigger Things’ inspires us to dream bigger, think broader and pursue audacious opportunities,” says New York Times best-selling author of “Unlearn,” Barry O’Reilly. “If you’re a big-picture visionary thinker seeking a more powerful approach to innovation, this is the book you’ve been waiting for.”

Using practical insights and stories, innovation strategists McClure and Wilde explain the thinking and tools they have used to create significant impact for a wide range of actors — for example, reshaping Fortune 10 companies, responding to climate change and empowering local Nepali innovators.

They explain:

  • The possibilities that can be unlocked with these powerful tools.
  • How readers can be the innovators who tackle important challenges.
  • A step-by-step method for changing the way the world works by innovating ecosystems.

“Do Bigger Things” opens the door to a powerful new approach to doing bigger things. It delivers the thinking and tools innovators need to re-imagine their community, their industry or the world.

“If you’re going to step up to these kinds of challenges, you need a way to intentionally take on complex and messy problems in a rapidly changing world,” McClure and Wilde said. “This is what ecosystem innovation does best. It provides tools and practices that make it possible for you to be among those who embrace real-world creative challenges and do bigger things.”

McClure has worked for more than 40 years to empower global organizations facing threats of obsolescence, pioneering businesses in fast-changing markets and passionate activists tackling hard challenges like climate change and humanitarian crisis response.

Wilde is an innovator working on the global stage. She has built an international network of innovation labs, supported innovators from idea to scale and shaped multimillion-dollar innovation programs.
