Summary "Whether you call it "lean start-up," "design thinking," or "agile," a new method is revolutionizing how to successfully create, refine, and bring ideas to market--without traditional business planning. But because these ideas and techniques run counter to conventional managerial thinking and practice, managers in established organizations have difficulty implementing them. Innovation experts Nathan Furr and Jeff Dyer aim to change that. Based on field work with thousands of managers and validated inside dozens of companies, THE INNOVATOR'S METHOD shows when and how to apply a "lean start-up" approach to innovation in established businesses. THE INNOVATOR'S METHOD takes managers through these new practices for managing innovation, showing how to adapt them to their businesses and answering such questions as: How do we know this idea is worth pursuing? Does it solve the right problem for customers? Have we found the right solution? Do we have the right business model for our new offering? With detailed cases from the authors' work implementing these ideas with companies such as Intuit, NEC, P&G, Virgin Airlines, Kia, Folio, Citi, Hallmark, and Verizon, THE INNOVATOR'S METHOD picks up where Jeff Dyer's THE INNOVATOR'S DNA leaves off, showing how to test, validate and commercialize ideas with the lean and agile techniques that successful entrepreneurs use"-- Provided by publisher.
