This book is both intriguing and highly useful. Procter & Gamble CEO A. G. Lafley and business author Ram Charan draw examples from several large, successful organizations – GE, Honeywell, Dupont – but their primary focus is Procter & Gamble (P&G). They explore how P&G changed from a staid giant to an organization driven by innovation – and radically expanded its sales and profits along the way. They are candid about P&G’s organizational methods and failed innovations, and they show how willing it has become to open up and connect. getAbstract recommends this book to anyone who is interested in innovation on a corporate scale and wants to know how to make it happen.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Procter & Gamble developed a culture of innovation;
- How you can innovate methodically and successfully; and
- Why innovation is so important.
