Why you should read Innovation to the Core
Peter Skarzynski and Rowan Gibson have gathered a great deal of background information on innovation. Readers who know the literature on the subject will find many of their suggestions familiar. This is not a criticism, but rather a point of praise: The book intelligently synthesizes techniques for innovation drawn from a wide range of sources to provide an up-to-date set of conceptual tools. Skarzynski and Gibson integrate these tools into a smooth, methodical process that readers can apply immediately. They illustrate their suggestions with examples and continually underscore important points. Actually, getAbstract finds that the book’s only weakness is its optimism: The authors write as if every company will be willing to face the challenge of innovation, and dedicate the time and energy needed to tackle it.
