I bought this book as an altrenative to core textbook of my university course in innovation. It is an excellent aid for my studies, built around a 4 stages framework "search, select, implement and capture innovation" that makes it easy to follow. I think it is oriented more to a managerial aspect of innovation as its title reveals, although it keeps a good balance between theoretical concepts and real life examples. What I liked most, is that is accompanied by a web site from where you can freely download many related and useful tools!!

Found this book useful from both a post grad student perspective as it summarises the main theories in innovation management and also as an industry practitioner - lots of frameworks that I can see being helpful in my day job too.

The other aspect I like are the external references and case studies.

Great book. It's essential reading for a modern business degree, in my opinion. Very useful as well as interesting. It includes a lot of extra reading that is not in the 3rd edition. The case studies are also really good, and help put a lot of the theory into context that is easily understandable.

This book has a clear structure, with great examples and real cases according to each section.
Practically, it covers all the stages form the firs company's notion of changes needed, across the whole process of transforming and develop the organization and ends with practical information about how to gain profits from innovation.

This book also has a major bonus - online practice source:[...]
Second source could be also relevant, which tells about recent issues: [...]

Appreciation for this book must be contextualised: it is not a short, readable business text where one or two key ideas are spun out to make an airport-shelf book with a snazzy title. Instead, it is a clear, accessible but above all *comprehensive* textbook which systematically and thoroughly addresses the "what, when, how and why" of innovating in large organisations. Unlike some academics, the authors show a keen awareness of the need to connect theory to practice and have put in commendable effort to bridge this gap, using jargon-free text, a plethora of illustrative case studies, contributions from practising businessmen and a supporting website which contains audio-visual material and comprehension self-tests, to support the concepts being explained within it. The one limitation of the text is really one of the field in general: it focuses heavily on large firms, though as the text explains, the academic research on innovation in small firms is a relatively unexplored area and hence cannot be covered to the same level of detail. Overall, this is a great text which enables the reader to gain a high level of insight into the direction, selection, exploration and exploitation of innovation within organisations.

It is a well written textbook (and the previous editions as well). One can trace back to the early thinking and writings of Arrow, Schumpeter, Nelson, Freeman and Pavitt. The authors are experienced and well trained professors. SPRU and MIoIR are two world leading innovation research centers, they trained good researchers on innovation research. The authors earned my respect. Worth to read and keep a copy, if you are serious on innovation!
