Synopsis : This is the third in a series of books about the post and its future. In 2010 the two Editors, Kristian Sund and Derek Osborn, published The Future is in the Post: Perspectives on Strategy in the Postal Industry. That book posed a direct challenge to the common assumption that the postal sector was in almost inevitable decline. It argued that the business of the post had never been more exciting and challenging, and that there had seldom been so many opportunities available. But to grasp these opportunities the postal sector s leaders needed to confront a number of strategic choices. The book illustrated how the industry was responding strategically to the main drivers for change. In 2011 The Future is in the Post II: Perspectives on Transformation in the Postal Industry outlined in more detail the nature of the transformations through which the postal industry was passing. It stressed the need to integrate the digital and the physical, in order to maximise the benefits from each, and emphasised the key enabling role of technology. It argued that the postal industry was in a unique position to be at the heart of the necessary integration. This third book, The Future is in the Post: Perspectives on Innovation in the Postal Industry, places the process of innovation centre stage. It explores how individuals and organisations can break out of predictable patterns, capitalising on innovative mind-sets, outlooks and approaches. As with the previous books, the contributors comprise a diverse group of people (and organisations) involved with the postal industry worldwide. In discussing issues relating to innovation in the postal sector these experienced industry professionals offer fascinating insights of great value to managers, suppliers, customers, policy-makers and politicians, regulators, and academics.
