Format: Paperback
When a book on Open Innovation starts with a foreword from Henry Chesbrough, you know that you're in safe hands.
We all like this book in our office - there are various post-it notes from different analysts on various pages. I especially like it because it does what it "says on the tin" - it contains advice from leading experts, and contains really digestible information and advice. It's a "pick-up" book (you put it down, then you pick it up again), not the sort of book you read and then shelve. There's a really good list of experts /thought leaders answering key questions on OI e.g. what are the benefits, what are the risks, how to get started, how to measure progress, who do we need?).

This book was my first contact with crowdsourcing and open innovation concepts of business approaches, techniques and examples.

Mr. Sloane did a terrific job, gathering all this useful information, and inspirational insights for people just interested in the subjects, for future entrepreneurs and innovators, for open Innovators and problem solving believers.

This book changed my ways of thinking business in the future, and motivated me to write a whole dissertation on how crowdsourcing is contribution to business innovation practises.

Format: Paperback
Great book with lots of examples of how open innovation and crowdsourcing is working and being used by a range of organisations. It also highlights some of the pitfalls if you are considering setting up your own crowdsourcing or open innovation process.

It is a mash up of different authors and writing styles which can be hard to follow at times. If there is another edition I'd recommend a good edit and a glossary to explain some of the jargon.

Practical guide and must read if you are considering this sort of innovation.

Paul Sloane has collected the thoughts and practical know-how from a wide range of business experts and thinkers to produce a rarity - a really useful and practical business book. If you want to know how to use crowd sourcing, this is the bible.
