Excellent for corporate America, ok for startups

For anyone at mid to large organizations, this is an excellent book with strategies and tactics to help move the ship and make change happen. It is useful for startups too.

Some good ideas sprinkled in a BORING listen

OK, the content in some of the 10 is pretty strong and thought provoking. The readers drone on with seemingly no investment in the content - it might not be their fault - imaging reading someone else's term paper - someone with some solid ideas about innovation, but probably who hasn't actually done it. Very disappointing. While I got some good ideas, I just couldn't get through it. I'm returning the book.

Good information, dry delivery

Good information, dry delivery. The narrators could have been better. It was hard to stay focus while listening.

loaded with great ideas

in general, there are tons of brilliant ideas in this work. the concept that IRR and DCF bias organizations away from innovation is powerful. Clayton M. Christensen and Peter Drucker are both great in here. -1 point on story just because there is a lot of frivolous MBA speak--obtuse jargon for simple concepts--which smacks of pseudoscience and detracts from the credibility of some of the authors. but I still recommend it!
