Ten Types of Innovation
The Discipline of Building Breakthroughs
Utilize 10 innovation types to spark productive creativity and build a culture that sustains it.
Many companies use ineffective, silly techniques to innovate, including brainstorming sessions featuring NERF balls and fun foods to make the session enjoyable and productive. But brainstorming does not work, no matter how many balls you throw at it. Larry Keeley, Ryan Pikkel, Brian Quinn and Helen Walters – all of Doblin, the innovation consultancy – detail what does spark innovation. Their book explains 10 kinds of innovation in detail. They suggest tactics and methods for analysis and planning, and they explain how to foster productive, tailored creativity. getAbstract praises this book’s informative design, data-block layout and lively graphics as well as the authors’ well-developed, and even innovative, ideas.

Comment on this summary
Key takeaway for me is that the best approach is to take a few aspects at a time and not try to execute all 10 at a time.
