Here is another book review with perspective with how the content can be applied to education This is how I always read my materials.On with the review.Book website www.innovatorsdna.comThis book was another fascinating read I have been blessed to have read many great books in a row This one is another one that all people should read.The authors conducted an eight year study that established 5 Skills that all innovators possess.1 Association2 Question3 Observe4 Network5 ExperimentWhen I think of these five skills I don t think of successful people despite that many have these skills, but I instantly think of kids All kids have these five skills The key idea that I left this book with is that schools and society must change to quit killing these skills in youth My young children possess these skills, but as they get older I fear they will lose these vital skills to be successful in life.It is hard to innovate when structure does not change and even so in schools with such limited scope when educators are forced to fight for obedience instead of learning.The authors mention that large companies typically fail at disrupting innovation because top management team is dominant by people with delivery skills, not discovery skills I think this holds true in some regards in education as well The schools that deliver have administration that get it and work for discovery and testing the edge of chaos.If we want this to change then I think the honest question
It took a sheer force of will to finish this because a friend of mine wanted to borrow it At the conclusion of my first reading, I felt like I had heard the same quotes and same ideas over and over so many times that I marveled how Jeff Dyer, Hal Gregersen could write the same chapter 10 times and get Clayton Christensen to let them put his name on it I say that because I don t ever sense Clay s voice throughout the mini tome The book is so repetitive, I had to wonder if they had put on an essay contest where they said Write about how to innovate, and you must mention the Google vs PG swap, the Apple Think Different ad campaign, and you have to talk about T shaped people But, you have to keep in mind that this is a book written by academics It s not supposed to be entertaining, so any entertainment value to be gotten from it is a bonus The book sometimes come across so supremely satisfied with its own ideas that you think that the authors believe that they invented IDEO and were responsible for teaching Steve Jobs et al the secrets of innovation I finished the book thinking I woul
Didn t really like it Too much Steve Jobs boosterism, and I don t agree with the basic premise that if we all get to be better innovators, we can be like Steve Jobs too That s not really a goal I aspir
Insight comes from exposure to different ideas, experimenting and reflecting This is no big news, I don t see what all the hype is about But I suppose that if you find this book useful, then maybe you indeed needed it in the first place. Really really like the authors advicebut know it is damn hard to implement. This one made me feel deceived I m a huge fan of Clayton Christensen, whose books The Innovator s Dilemma and The Innovator s Solution blew my mind and brought important frameworks and concepts I use all the time in my equity investing profession Seeing the title and Mr Christensen listed as one of the authors, I was fooled to believe this was another member of his innovator s series.It wasn t.Actually written by Jeffrey Dyer and Hal Gregersen, Clayton acted as an advisor and premium reviewer on this one and as a book bait to Clayton s fanboys like me.The lack of innovation on the ideas presented on the book can tell The authors could have eaten of their own cooking and apply the advice on the text to actually come up with ideas that haven t been said for about 875,327 times by now Are they serious they wrote a whole book to bring the message that innovators practice association, questioning, observation, networking and experimentation The age of the book is not an excuse, as when it was published in 2011, when these innovator s skills were than known.Don t get me wrong The authors were behind a very extensive study on innovation in the corporate world and I pr
The concepts are great and definitely worth incorporating into your daily life, but all of the important information can be found in the HBR article they wrote the book just adds anecdotal stories from the lives of successful innovators Some of the cases were so tied to business that I found them contradictory when trying to apply them to the citizen or government sectors There are 4 skills to practice, which culminate in the skill of association, or connecting var
I found the way the authors approached the topic of innovation to be at odds with the overall structure of the book This dichotomy was distracting While the book is about innovative entrepreneurs, thinking outside the box, and what it takes to master those skills, the authors presented the information in an extremely structured, traditional, and data
I love every book I ve ever read written by Clayton Christensen This book describes five characteristics that all innovators share in common Associating, Questioning, Observing, Networking, and Experimenting I would like to develop these skills to help me in my career After the first section of individual skills developed by innovators, he lis
As a fan of Clayton Christensen, I thought this would be an interesting read The main insight that questioning, observing, associating, networking, and experimenting are together the keys to innovation was interesting, but it probably could have been adequately explored in a long article The book just ended up being pretty repetitive, and the explanations obvious in view of Christensen s other work That b
