Are you the next Steve Jobs?
You can be as innovative and impactful - if you can change your behaviors to improve your creative impact.
In The Innovator’s DNA, authors Jeff Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and bestselling author Clayton M. Christensen (The Innovator’s Dilemma, The Innovator’s Solution) 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 world’s best innovators - from leaders at Amazon and Apple to those at Google, Skype, and Virgin Group - 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 innovator’s DNA), the authors explain how you can generate ideas, collaborate with colleagues to implement them, and build innovation skills throughout your organization to sharpen its competitive edge. That innovation advantage can translate into a premium in your company’s stock price - an innovation premium - that is possible only by building the code for innovation right into your organization’s people, processes, and guiding philosophies.
Practical and provocative, The Innovator’s DNA is an essential resource for individuals and teams who want to strengthen their innovative prowess.

This book analyzes some of the best thinkers of our time and shares strategies and tools to think like them. It won't make you an instant innovator or genius critical thinker but it definitely will add some tools to your toolbox. Give it a listen past the first few chapters-- it starts off a little preachy with motivational garb as if this were a self-help book but it picks up and provides some real gems!
It's in the top tier group of the audiobooks I have listened to.
It gave me a way to structure my thinking to my come up with new business ideas. It gives you ways to develop not only your own discovery skills but those of your company.
IT Manager and life long learner
Disruptive innovation is driven by companies with a creative mentality rather then just an execution mentality. The insights in this book about gaining a wide exposure across industries and cultures to look for links that are not that obvious is intriguing. The idea of a vu ja de event where you truly see and grasp new insight in something you have been looking at for years due to knew perspectives is a very powerful idea.
