HASH(0x9508e864) out of 5 stars Well-Grounded Articles that are Worth Reading 18 July 2010
By customer - Published on
The Harvard Business Review on Business Model Innovation (Harvard Business Review Paperback Series) makes a good contribution to the series (HBR has published several books of this sort under different themes). The time you spend with it is sure to be rewarded. This happened for me in the first pages, where I learned about the business model for all of those free coupon books you find on college campuses. I had always wondered what the deal was with those!

+ Written in a way that is accessible to a general audience. Perfect if you want to learn something, but don't want to wade through densely written text. Beach reading for businessmen?

+ The authors get right to the point. You won't find many brilliant allusions or extended metaphors. Instead, you get straightforward, clear, concise, and engaging articles. These sentences are models of business writing! Everything ought to have an executive summary :)

- If you are a regular reader of the Harvard Business review, then this is probably not for you. These are eight reprinted articles from the last decade or so with no value added.

- Is it still relevant? I think so, but I am not sure. The editors could have added a little bit of commentary that would have contextualized the articles, told us what impact (if any) they had, and any additional issues that need to be considered since the publication of the article. In the article on disruptive technologies, for example, I found the advice remained relevant, but would like to have seen a brief discussion of more up-to-date cases like Facebook and so forth. Even a paragraph or two after the articles would have been sufficient.

The book is enjoyable and educational. If you are interested in business models, then you'll want to take a look at it.
