A new classic, cited by leaders and media around the globe as a highly recommended read for anyone interested in innovation. In The Innovatora€™s DNA, authors Jeffrey Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and bestselling author Clayton Christensen (The Innovatora€™s Dilemma, The Innovatora€™s Solution, How Will You Measure Your Life?) build on what we know about disruptive innovation to show how individuals can develop the skills necessary to move progressively from idea to impact. By identifying behaviors of the worlda€™s best innovatorsa€”from leaders at Amazon and Apple to those at Google, Skype, and Virgin Groupa€”the authors outline five discovery skills that distinguish innovative entrepreneurs and executives from ordinary managers: Associating, Questioning, Observing, Networking, and Experimenting. Once you master these competencies (the authors provide a self-assessment for rating your own innovatora€™s DNA), the authors explain how to generate ideas, collaborate to implement them, and build innovation skills throughout the organization to result in a competitive edge. This innovation advantage will translate into a premium in your companya€™s stock pricea€”an innovation premiuma€”which is possible only by building the code for innovation right into your organizationa€™s people, processes, and guiding philosophies. Practical and provocative, The Innovatora€™s DNA is an essential resource for individuals and teams who want to strengthen their innovative prowess.He felt he had enough data to run the experiment to see if books could be successfully sold over the Internet. ... to warehouse and ship books, Amazon offered the largest selection of books anywhere, without having made anyinvestment in stores, warehouses, or inventory. ...
