Innovation may be the hottest discipline around today - in business circles and beyond. And for good reason. Innovation transforms companies and markets. It's the key to solving vexing social problems. And it makes or breaks professional careers. For all the enthusiasm the topic inspires, however, the practice of innovation remains stubbornly impenetrable. No longer. In The Little Black Book of Innovation, long-time innovation expert Scott D. Anthony draws on stories from his research and field work with companies like Procter & Gamble to demystify innovation. In his trademark conversational and lively style, Anthony presents a simple definition of innovation, breaks down the essential differences between types of innovation, and illuminates innovation's vital role in organizational success and personal growth.
This unique hybrid of professional memoir and business guidebook also provides a powerful 28-day program for mastering innovation's key steps:
With its wealth of illustrative case studies and vignettes from a range of companies around the globe, this engaging and potent playbook is a must-hear for anyone seeking to turn themselves or their companies into true innovation powerhouses.

First book I audio read following from my Innovation module. It does cover most of the topics in Innovation.
Not too detailed but worth reading it. I have made note of some good points.
Good for people who are ready to apply Innovation in their lives.
"Great Innovation Overview Summary"
The book was well organized, practical and actionable. It gave valuable suggestions for additional reading as well as techniques to put in to motion everyday.
Engaging, but not over done, performance by Sean Pratt.
Full of clear, implementable steps. I found the book to be extermely practical, different from the theoretical approach of most books on innovation. And I believe this was the exact intention of the author.
"Great information and useful procedures"
A great book for any entrepreneur or product designer looking to define and apply innovation towards a goal. I like how the innovation process is broken up into phases like a project.
I enjoyed this book and it provides fresh ideas on how to innovate. A good book to revisit.
This is a great book on innovation with a step by step guide to create a framework to innovate. Excellent!
"Tres tres bon"
J'ai adoré ce livre, j'aimerais en avoir un volume 2. C'est inspirant de voir ce que les gens font.
"Instructive AND practical"
I found this book both instructive and practical. It's one of those that tempts me to buy a hard copy so as to lift quotes. In fact, I'll need to listen through a second time because it is so thick with practical application. I plan to introduce it to my staff (church staff).
"Top Little Black Book"
Many excellent principles to significantly improve anyone's innovative skills in any aspect of your life!
"A great read with real world case studies"
Great book on innovation. The author is experienced, knows what he is talking about and provides great case studies across different spheres of business. Don't pass up an opportunity to read this book.
"If you read one book...."
I swear if I hear that phrase one more time!!!! Just stop that. "If you read one book, readxxxxx" sounds more like a book report on much better books than a book itself.
