From the Back Cover
Innovation is the process of converting new things into business–as–usual. There are few banks today that fail to recognise the capability to do this is a key way of sustaining competitive advantage. Many, however, have little idea of how to go about building such capabilities. By so doing, they expose themselves to uncertain futures, as other players enter and out–innovate them in core markets.
There are some banks, however, who always seem to be ahead of the curve. They have created capabilities that enable them to out–innovate the innovators. To do so, they have established a set of practices that allow them to future–poof themselves.
This is a book about hose practices in banks. It explains, using examples from institutions around the world, what it takes to create the business process that introduces new things and makes them business–as–usual. It shows how to do this with reliability and certainty of return. And, in the process, it illustrates what your institution can do to be as future–proof as the most innovative banks in the world.

The author has been very clever in providing real-time examples and case studies, however they are related to other industries as well. Thus even if you aren't in the Finance industries, the book would be well served in it's common descriptions and delivery for other industries.
Most interesting is the chapters around teams and personalities within an Innovation group - everybody has experienced success and failure due to teaming issues and this will give an interesting overview on who and how to avoid them becoming apparent in your teams!
The book stems from theory based topics but is injected with highlights of humour that make the book enjoyable to read.
A great read, highly recommended and I certainly hope we see more from this particular author.
The structure and language of the book remind me of my days at the university.
Overall a good choice.
