Descripción del producto
"In today's world of always-accelerating global competition, organizations either innovate or die. And as the authors of this worthwhile book make clear, innovation in the Networked Age is a team sport. It's no longer enough just to think differently. You have to think faster. You have to think more productively. And to do that, you need to think collaboratively. This book is filled with good advice on how to do just that. Read it, then share it with your co-workers!"Â Reid Hoffman, cofounder/chairman of LinkedIn and coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age "No matter what business you are in, innovation is at the heart and soul of success in the Digital Age. This thought-provoking and inspirational book is a must read for anyone seeking to master the art and science of innovation and accelerated business development. Simply put, it's a map that will lead you and your organization to exponential breakthrough success in the new Digital Gold Rush."Â Jack Canfield, coauthor of The Power of Focus and The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be "Agile Innovation promises to profoundly transform businesses and institutions. By bridging the worlds of Agile and traditional corporate innovation, the authors have created a mash-up for business strategy that enables the transformation of self-organizing toward self-optimizing teams and offer a map for the journey to the development of self-actualizing organizations. This must-read book is a strategic imperative for anybody aiming to successfully deliver new products or services in a brutally competitive, digitally-accelerated business world."Â Errol Arkilic, CEO of M34 Capital and co-creator of the Innovation Corps "Innovation is not about new products or services. It is about speed. Agility. The old methods of innovation are slow and rarely involve those who matter most: front-line workers. This book absolutely changes the game and it will change the way you innovate. Don't delay. Read it now!"Â Stephen Shapiro, author of the bestselling Best Practices Are Stupid & 24/7 Innovation, and formerly Director, Accenture, Global Process Excellence Practice "Innovation has been a hot topic in the worlds of business and academia for most of the last decade. Finally, a comprehensive book has been written about what specific skills and behaviors are need to narrow the gap for companies of all sizes to have innovation become a core driver of sustainable growth and positive financial impact. Today's corporate leaders must build a culture of agile innovation and this book is the perfect manual for business today." Â Harry W. Kellogg, Vice Chairman, SVB Silicon Valley Bank "Innovation is too often discussed in the abstract, almost as a spiritual totem. The authors of Agile Innovation de-mystify innovation, and lay out a thoughtful road map for readers to understand how to create innovative organizations. The methodology applies as well to large organizations as start ups and should be on the reading list of anyone who wants to prepare their companies for the rest of the 21st century."Â Gary Rieschel, Founder and Managing Director, Qiming Venture Partners "Sustainable Innovation: the speed to innovate and the ability to foster a culture where constant creativity is the norm is becoming a critical function for organizations and individuals given the fast pace of today's global business. Agile Innovation captures the essence of this domain in a succinct, informative and highly engaging manner."Â George Thomas, Partner and Director, IBM Corporation "Agile Innovation is a rare and exceptional book. It has the potential to move the entire field forward, through the clarity of its writing and the importance of its message. If you are going to read any book on innovation this year, make it this one."Â Pascal Baudry, PhD, Founder, WDHB Consulting Group "This is a very important book, and makes a strong case for a paradigm shift in the methodology of innovation, based on the Agile approach. This must read book is successful in practicing what it preaches - in not just preaching innovation but by demonstrating innovativeness - and deserves to be read carefully and digested thoroughly." Â Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum and author of Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time

The authors slightly alter the second value of the Agile Manifesto, replacing “Working software” with “Working innovations.”
That’s fine because Agile Innovation is about rapid-cycle, iterative development rather than getting it perfect. Instead of a 100-page business case, put a working prototype in the hands of your customers and get customer feedback: Does the prototype work the way you intended? What’s the next step in design?
I also agree when the authors state that teams should be able to complete a rough prototype within two months. When I see a software team work for three months or more without producing a working product or even a minimum viable product, those project always fail.
The book provides four new habits that companies should embrace so there’s an environment that will foster the development of prototypes in two months. The second habit resonates with me: The work process must be modified so teams can deliver incremental versions of working products and obtain customer feedback. Then, iterate again.
Throughout the book the authors tap into the deep wisdom of the Agile community and apply Agile principles to innovation.
Because Jeff Sutherland designed the Scrum framework as an object-oriented framework, the authors are able to reuse Scrum for Agile Innovation. Sure, they call it an “Idea Scrum” and the product backlog consists of ideas, and the output of the sprint is an incrementally validated business case; still their Scrum Framework works in iterations and elicits values like working innovations.
As you’d expect, the book also showcases the authors’ creative chops. Coauthor Moses Ma developed an approach called multivisioning, a way to continuously generate ideas by shifting perspective while you brainstorm.
Moses took the concepts from one of my favorite books, Applied Imagination, and combined it with the thinking of Leonardo da Vinci who believed to solve a problem you should learn to see it and structure it in may ways.
There’s also a section about Jungian archetypes. We see that Steve Jobs and Leonardo da Vinci were the magician archetype. I especially enjoyed reading da Vinci’s letter to the Duke of Milan; a job application of sorts describing Leonardo’s 10 magical skills. Yes, da Vinci was the ultimate T-shaped employee!
I don’t have time to write about all the stories and innovation concepts in the book, except to say I think you’ll enjoy reading about the story of Leonidas and the mythic 300 and how the story inspires innovation.
Director Continuous Improvement
(The authors address innovation and entrepreneurship collectively and do not distinguish between them in the book. See Clifton and Badal's "Entrepreneurial Strengthsfinder" for an excellent discussion on both. Innovation is the generation of a new idea while entrepreneurship is the commercialization of the idea. Entrepreneurship is the rarest of talents.)
The authors' begin by asking the reader the essential questions:
* How well are you and your company prevailing in the current environment of accelerating change?
* How well-positioned are you and your company to benefit from the countless new opportunities that change is bringing?
* Does your organization have a rigorous innovation process?
* Are you sufficiently agile to survive and to succeed?
And then provide a "complete toolkit" for implementing Agile Innovation to build an innovation-based culture. The four principles constituting "Agile Innovation" are:
* Implementation of the right business processes that combine quality and speed to enable out-innovating competition
* Reduction of the inherent risks in innovation by banking on the ideas and making the right investment decisions.
* Generation of ideas that are better than anyone else's by effectively engaging a larger group of people
* Development and demonstration of exceptional leadership skills
The book's fifteen chapters center on these four principles covering topics like: why don't large firms innovate?; The resistance to change; the secret sauce of innovation; customer collaboration; innovating is learning; transforming time - from meetings to productivity; the customer value proposition; a framework for transformation; the innovation Master Plan; the Scrum and the Sprint; a system for innovation; innovation portfolio design; automating portfolio management; transcending limitations; innovation culture metrics; agile coaching; innovation is a team sport; innovate as if your life depends on it (it does); how Apollo 13 was able to return to earth; leadership and uncertainty; passion; branding; the virtual infrastructure; open systems; the revolutionary leader; agile capitalism; and much more. Questions are provided at the end of each chapter for reflection.
I found the discussion of "Scrum and Sprint" to be of great value. Authors Morris, Ma, and Wu highlight and go into great detail about the scrum and sprint process used in software development. They feel it can be successfully adapted to domains outside software for product development. I think they are right. It is a fascinating (and proven) approach that deserves inspection. The traditional development process in most industries needs to be brought into the 21st Century. This approach may improve overall quality and accelerate time to market for most any new product or service.
Another topic, open office systems, also resonated with me. I started my career as an aerospace engineer for Honeywell in the late 1960s. We had over 300 engineers, row-after-row in one large room. Our bosses sat with us. Communication and collaboration there were the highest I experienced in my career. My transition from Honeywell to American Hospital Supply Corporation (Baxter) included a transition from an "open system" to offices and cubicles where there was more formality and less collaboration.
My recent experience with IDEO and several high tech firms has convinced me that the office and cubicle approach is obstructive to innovation. Unfortunately, having a private office and cubicle has become a status symbol which means the move to an open system will not come without some sacrifice (ego). Nevertheless, there are many new (and acceptable) office layouts and furniture emerging that encourage communication and collaboration, and offer privacy when needed. This is the way to go to open up an organization to maximizing their innovation productivity.
