Creating an innovative climate is essential for positive organizational change, and this demands leaders who can bring about this change. John Adair looks at the links between leadership, creativity, and change. Innovate or stagnate: that is the stark challenge facing all businesses today. He explores every aspect of this vital business topic in his classic style. Using case studies of Google, Honda, and 3M, Adair covers topics such as the characteristics of innovators, organizing for team creativity, expectations of creative people, creative leadership, managing the criticism of ideas, harvesting ideas, and overcoming resistance to change. This new book will help leaders of all types meet the challenges of innovation and achieve profitable growth through team creativity.

Therefore, this study applied diffusion of innovations theory to identify the differences in demographic characteristics of Internet adopters and non-adopters among faculty members at Imam University in Saudi Arabia, to examine whether faculty members' perceptions of the Internet affected adoption, to determine if the university administration’s decisions impacted faulty members' decisions to adopt the Internet, identified factors motivating faculty members to adopt the Internet, to identify obstacles influencing faculty members' decisions to use the Internet, and determined whether innovation characteristics as perceived by faculty members predicted Internet adoption. Using Rogers’ diffusion of innovation theory, the influence of eight attributes were examined regarding Internet adoption among Imam University faculty members. In academic environments today, Internet applications have been widely implemented in universities and colleges, with professors now integrating Internet technology into classroom activities. Internet adoption can be considered the late 20th century’s most important event.
