Crack open most books on innovation, and you’ll probably find two things: many challenging and complicated ideas along with a lot of intimidating jargon. This book is not too much different. Why? Because innovation is hard and it is complicated. But the payoffs are truly wonderful: the creation and capture of new value through products, services, and technologies. Moreover, it can be really fun not only for individuals within innovative organizations but for entire companies as well.
