From the Back Cover
Innovate your way to meaningful and sustainable growth
Most scientists agree that we live in one of the greatest times of change in the history of our species. And yet the pace of change is actually increasing...
For many firms, this means innovation isn′t optional, it′s imperative. Customers demand it. Competitors will outflank you if you don′t achieve it. Talented employees won′t join your firm if you don′t deliver it. Analysts expect it. Investors reward it. And yet most people still believe in primitive myths about innovation: "It′s only about new products and new technology"; "It′s about rare strokes of inspired genius"; "There′s no disciplined, consistent method"; etc. These common assumptions are not true.
Based on over three decades of path–breaking work on innovation effectiveness, Ten Types of Innovation will help you and your teams know what to do when the stakes are high, time is short, and you really need to build a breakthrough. The solution is to look beyond new products to nine other powerful types of innovation, which can be combined for competitive advantage. The book lays out fresh ways to think, and then explains the actions that allow teams or firms to innovate reliably and repeatedly.
Written for entrepreneurs, executives, and innovators on the front line in virtually any industry, anyone who wants to move beyond the folklore and get innovation to really work will find the tradecraft revealed here to be indispensable.
" Ten Types of Innovation is a must–read for any manager seriously interested in building an innovation culture rather than waiting around hoping for the next immaculate conception."
Roger L. Martin, Dean, Rotman School of Management

Larry Keeley wrote this book with Ryan Pikkel, Brian Quinn, and Helen Walters. "As the principal author of the text, I am responsible for the basic arguments throughout, and the system of ideas here either succeeds or fails because of me." However, as explains in the Preface, it really is the result of a team effort. Each of his colleagues made significant and unique contributions, as did Bansi Nagii. Although not one of the authors of the book, Nagii "played a role in refreshing and advancing the Ten Types of Innovation." As I read the book, I recognized that it is an excellent example of the collaborative process by which breakthrough innovations are achieved if (HUGE "if") sufficient discipline has been developed by everyone involved.
The material is carefully organized and effectively presented within three categories of innovation types: Configuration, Offering, and Experience. As Keeley explains, more than 2,000 of what were at that time (i.e. in 1998) considered to be innovations were discovered, examined, and evaluated. Each was "the creation of a viable new offering." As he then adds, innovation may involve invention but requires a great deal more (e.g. a deep understanding of customer need), innovations "have to earn their keep" (i.e. return value), very little is in fact new in innovation (rather, the result of an evolving process of improvement), and it is important to "think beyond products" to new ways of doing business, for example, and news ways of engagement with customers.Read more ›
Ideal for the marketeer.
Purchased with a view to a studen course on creativity, but would really need to be part of a specialist marketing course.
An easy read with plenty of examples and detailed elaboration of the 'ten types'
