A step-by-step guide to systematic, repeatable, reliable innovation.
Humans have been innovating since before…well…just about everything. In fact, our ability to innovate is, in large part, what makes us human.
Yet for all of our success and experience, we still have little actual knowledge of the innovation process. The Innovator’s Toolkit changes that by providing a step-by-step guide to systematic, repeatable, reliable innovation.
50+ TECHNIQUES FOR PREDICTABLE AND
SUSTAINABLE ORGANIC GROWTH
Following years of research by their team of more than 20 researchers, Samuel, Silverstein and DeCarlo draw upon the entire team’s personal experiences and insights as well as best-in-class research from people like Clayton Christensen of the Harvard Business School, Eric von Hippel of MIT, Edward de Bono, Michael Kirton, George Land, and many others.
While these many brilliant minds have codified elements of the process by which humans innovate, the Innovator’s Toolkit offers the first systematic approach that can be referred to as a methodology, not merely a set of tools.
The authors’ D4 Process (Design, Discover, Develop, Demonstrate) enables individuals and teams to follow a step-by-step process, drawing upon proven tools and approaches, while still encouraging the freedom of thought that is ultimately at the heart of all innovation.
