Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else
Author: Geoff Colvin | Great performers around us may not be innately talented, but learn to do more, perceive more and remember more with a simple funda: Intensive deliberate practice. In a new book, the author argues that talent is overrated and world-class performers train their brains and bodies to achieve more.

That path, however, is long, demanding and pursued by few.

They don't see their organizations, no matter how large, as immutable blocks of stone," author and innovation scholar Gary Pisano says in this new title. The book claims that large companies can construct a strategy, system, and culture of innovation that creates sustained growth.
