When asked; “where do great ideas come from?” the author replied: “from the future!” A significant, timely, and ambitious endeavor, Bowling with a Crystal Ball by Dr. Yoram Solomon, is relevant to developers, strategists, marketers, venture capitalists and academia alike. The book examines the impact of state-of-the-art technologies on consumer-driven markets. A follower of disruptive technologies with an insider's track, the author shares tools and techniques to teach readers how to tap into future trends. In three parts, delivered in a very personal manner, the author teaches the art of accurately forecasting fast-moving technology trends, creating value-add market disruptions, and navigating them through the industry maze to success. Originally published in 2007, it served as a textbook for a technology and industry forecasting class at the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Texas at Dallas. This 2015 edition adds the story behind the creation of USB 3, as well as an introduction to the author’s third book, un-kill creativity, demonstrating how established companies can out-innovate startups without having to acquire them.
