A guide to mining the imagination to find new ways to succeed (Harvard Business Review Press, 2021).

We need imagination now more than ever—to find opportunities in adversity, rethink our businesses, and discover new paths to growth.

Drawing on the experience and insights of CEOs across industries, as well as lessons from neuroscience, computer science, psychology, and philosophy, BCG’s Martin Reeves and Jack Fuller provide a fascinating look into the mechanics of imagination.
