Nolan Key Bushnell, founder of Atari, and the Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza-Time Theaters, reveals some of the main ideas in his new book Finding the Next Steve Jobs. Nolan warns that innovation stagnation affects all business, not just traditionally "creative" companies but even tech giants like Nokia. Once it ruled over 70% of the phone industry but had its market taken away by Blackberry when Nokia failed to come out with a competitor. One of the biggest concerns is that innovation breaks some of the traditional rules that business hold dear. Nolan talks about how business need to let go of some of the control that it once held and give it back to the workers to truly unleash innovation.
