Publisher's Summary

Innovation may be the hottest discipline around today - in business circles and beyond. And for good reason. Innovation transforms companies and markets. It’s the key to solving vexing social problems. And it makes or breaks professional careers. For all the enthusiasm the topic inspires, however, the practice of innovation remains stubbornly impenetrable. No longer. In The Little Black Book of Innovation, long-time innovation expert Scott D. Anthony draws on stories from his research and field work with companies like Procter & Gamble to demystify innovation. In his trademark conversational and lively style, Anthony presents a simple definition of innovation, breaks down the essential differences between types of innovation, and illuminates innovation’s vital role in organizational success and personal growth.

This unique hybrid of professional memoir and business guidebook also provides a powerful 28-day program for mastering innovation’s key steps:

  • Finding insight
  • Generating ideas
  • Building businesses
  • Strengthening innovation prowess in your workforce and organization

With its wealth of illustrative case studies and vignettes from a range of companies around the globe, this engaging and potent playbook is a must-hear for anyone seeking to turn themselves or their companies into true innovation powerhouses.

    "Great Innovation Overview Summary"
    If you could sum up The Little Black Book of Innovation in three words, what would they be?

    The book was well organized, practical and actionable. It gave valuable suggestions for additional reading as well as techniques to put in to motion everyday.


    What about Sean Pratt’s performance did you like?

    Engaging, but not over done, performance by Sean Pratt.

    "Highly Executable!"

    Full of clear, implementable steps. I found the book to be extermely practical, different from the theoretical approach of most books on innovation. And I believe this was the exact intention of the author.

    I enjoy reading fantasy, science fiction, and horror the most. To improve, I read about language, psychology, spirituality, and art. I read about computer science and business for professional reasons.

    "Great information and useful procedures"

    A great book for any entrepreneur or product designer looking to define and apply innovation towards a goal. I like how the innovation process is broken up into phases like a project.

    "Instructive AND practical"

    I found this book both instructive and practical. It's one of those that tempts me to buy a hard copy so as to lift quotes. In fact, I'll need to listen through a second time because it is so thick with practical application. I plan to introduce it to my staff (church staff).
