Great book on the state of the art in innovation management
on 16 November 2010
This book is a great statement on the state of the art in innovation management. It brings together an enormous amount of information on the subject from around the world (not just the USA!) and structures it in a very readable and accessible way. It has been extremely helpful to me in my job in a major management consultancy. It is full of useful frameworks and analytical tools developed by the authors. I note a couple of reviewers have complained that the book references the work of others. Well, that is standard academic practice guys (!), and the book is much stronger as a result. There are plenty of simple-minded books on this subject by people who claim to know it all. I prefer considered books by experts who choose and interpret the best work of others and place it in their own frameworks. The amazing endorsements of the book from business leaders and top academics shows the regard with which this book is held and the contribution it will make.
