Great piece of work that combined well with other texts for the course. Highly recommend.

This book is useful even though, in itself, it¿s not all that innovative. In fact, if you have consciously been working on innovation, you¿ll find little or nothing new in it. However, it is an exceptionally clear compilation of the established ways to enhance creativity, guide innovation and manage your organization to support both. It does a great job of demystifying these often confusing concepts, and of making full use of diagrams, charts and capsule explanations. Its strengths are also its weaknesses: The brevity means some complex concepts are only sketchy. We therefore recommend this book to novices or methodical innovators ¿ to the first as a guidebook and to the second as a reference.
