“If you are an executive who put down your copy of Gordon MacKenzie's ‘Orbiting the Giant Hairball’ and said, "Now what?" then this book is for you. MacKenzie's book was a good table-setter, so to speak: shattering assumptions, tweaking corporate conventions, and sparking creativity in a general sense. But eventually one must step up to the plate and put a plan into action, and here Cogliandro's book takes over. It is not a how-to book, because the very point of innovation is that it can't be a paint-by-numbers process. Intelligent Innovation instead approaches innovation from a systemic perspective, asking how it can be established at every level, from the moment that the idea is scribbled on the proverbial napkin to the moment that the finished product is sent out into the marketplace. His point is that innovation MUST occur at every level; that an enterprise is only as strong as it's least innovative link, and he uses the broad metaphor of a turbine engine to successfully reinforce this idea. This book is for those who are responsible for ensuring that productive and competitive thinking can't end on Tuesday morning, once Monday afternoon's brainstorming meeting ends. Cogliandro conveys an impressive knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of the innovation process, including many case studies and such information as an analysis of stock price as it relates to product launch. He also provides sample action plans and timetables, and a helpful self-assessment (the I-Quotient) which should be tremendously useful to any organization that is willing to ask itself whether it is adequately equipped to be innovative. Once you are inspired to innovate, this book should be a great resource. GimmeSomeD - Boston MA
