Tom Peter's latest book aims to not only redefine how we think about business but also to redefine our view of the business book. He succeeds more in the second area than the first. Underneath all the large font quotes, was / is contrast lists and multiple exclamation marks there is regrettably little here that is not already recycled and hence cannot already be found elsewhere.

Describing the programme to build new innovation capability within Whirlpool, this is written very much from the experience of having being involved at the coalface. It takes us through the change process that occurred within the company since September 1999 when the idea to embed innovation as a core competence within the organisation was first aired. Touching on key cultural as well as strategic issues it provides a good example of how new innovation capability can be built and how it can help an organisation make a shift into new areas.

Six years on from The Innovator's Dilemma this follow up moves on from the examination of the consequences of sustaining vs. disruptive innovations and technological discontinuities to look at how companies are trying to create the disruptions rather than deal with them. This time the authors suggest that innovation is not as unpredictable as it has preciously been thought to be and look wider than the core technical platforms. Examples include Bloomberg, Google, MBNA and Toyota.
