Unexpected factors can cause a business or project plan to be tossed out the window in the blink of an eye. If you are a Board member, a CEO, a top or mid-level executive, a startup entrepreneur or just a person with a big dream, what do you do when your plans go awry? How can you make a difference in what you do? Why is a different approach vital to success in this fast, ever-changing, volatile world? How can you stay on course to achieve your long-term vision?

Azran Osman-Rani’s 30 Days of Curiosity and 30 Years of Purposefulness strategy is a fresh and unorthodox take on creating an entrepreneurial culture that can transform how businesses operate. Highly engrossing and thought-provoking, this book is a must read for all who want to break organizational norms.

You can take the man out of the firm, but you cannot take the firm out of the man! It's been over 15 years since Azran left McKinsey, and he's still creating frameworks and structure to make sense of entrepreneurial creativity and disruptive innovation - to enable more people to learn and apply them.

Having worked with Azran to scale the AirAsia X organisation and culture, I've found these principles equally effective in large, established corporates when we harness the power of high-speed agility, resilience to bounce back from setbacks, and bringing out deep motivations of each team member.

I did not expect to read such bold and spot-on management concepts coming from what I had perceived as a corporate guy. A breath of fresh air that resonated with what I picked up from my Singularity University Executive Program.
