5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended December 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Did you know bees can smell bombs? Or that it could soon be possible to fly from the US to Japan in 30 minutes? Would you like to know exactly how your Kindle works? How could a tree be related to a laptop? Did you know there is a handshake invented to combat Swine Flu? And is SMS more popular in Asia due to people having thinner fingers? Would you like to know how to build a well without going down a hole?

Sanjeev Sharma, a New York-based consultant and US citizen who moved from India in the 90′s, gives insights into all these questions in his book, 5 Core Methods of Innovation.

The book is a real treasure trove of facts, absolutely soaked in a Who's Who of everyone in the world of innovation from Thomas Edison to Amazon to Steve Jobs, and outlines how they made it happen in a bitesize format, with examples of their best work, which is a great potted history for any reader, as we discover their business and design techniques that made their products and services household names. Also we get a great case study of many dot.coms that made it big.

A fantastic study piece, Sharma lays out the principles of innovation and their related disciplines, such as Addition Framework (adding a feature for innovation, such as the frame to the lenses for glasses, an eraser to the end of a pencil), Subtraction Framework (streamlining features or taking them away) Disruptive Innovation (such as what the product cannot do) as well as talking about ergonomics and efficiency, which are cornerstones of the innovation principle in degree level education, and, more importantly, the pen-to-paper application of these principles, which is vastly welcome in this type of book, and over more, rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that makes you think December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I like books that make you think and this one does. Innovation is what keeps life interesting and this book lays down basic principles of innovation and explains them using simple to understand examples. I also appreciate the storytelling aspect of the book and that it stretches across industries including finance, IT, and manufacturing. The author explains that multiple decades of innovation in a particular industry were based on only a few basic methods. Sharma shares his experiences of working in the venture capital industry and recommends what should be considered while making venture capital investments since most venture capital investments usually loose money. He also brings many stories from the business strategy and states that business strategy is nothing but process innovation to improve profitability of a firm, and the same 5 frameworks of innovation can be applied for creating new business strategies. Bottom line, the books gets you thinking.

I really liked this book, I have read other content on innovation but most of it is quite vague and has no practical content. This book is very methodical and has starting and ending points and has very intuitive examples.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent book that brings together the entire history of innovation in America. Kudos to the author for a comprehensive research and a practical framework that can be applied to daily work. Certainly a reference that I carry with me everyday.

The most powerful learning for me is that almost anyone can produce ground breaking and innovative ideas by following these 5 steps.
