Review

"In his new book, The Open Innovation Revolution: Essentials, Roadblocks and Leadership Skills, Lindegaard outlines 10 essential elements of an open innovation culture. What makes this list even more compelling than usual is that it comes not just from the mind of the author, but from some top-notch open innovation practitioners in Stefan's Linkedin group. I have only just begun to read The Open Innovation Revolution, but am already impressed with Stefan's thinking. He's not some ivory tower prognosticator, but a relentless networker who gets out there and develops relationships with key open innovation movers like Thoen and encourages discussion on his Linkedin group. In other words, Stefan's approach is very inclusive; by seeking out many voices, he has developed a deeper understanding of the emerging strategies and practices of open innovation than almost anyone else I know. If your company is thinking about implementing an open innovation strategy, then The Open Innovation Revolution is a must read." (Bob Morris, FirstFridayBookSynopsis, 6/15/10)

From the Inside Flap

Life is not exactly a bed of roses for most innovation leaders and intrapreneurs—those assertive, innovative, corporate risk-takers who passionately turn ideas into profitable products. They take on corporate sacred cows and face down challenges that would cause less driven and less talented people to quickly throw their hands down in defeat. They struggle daily to unleash entrepreneurial thinking while dealing with an army of people fiercely dedicated to maintaining the status quo.

The question for business leaders is simple: How can innovation leaders and intrapreneurs freely operate in a corporation that wants to keep things the way they are? The answer is also simple: read The Open Innovation Revolution.

This practical guide reveals that, without the right people to drive innovation processes, your odds of success shrink dramatically. And as open innovation becomes the norm, developing the right people skills—networking, communicating with stakeholders, building your personal brand, and the ability to sell ideas—is essential for your innovation leaders and intrapreneurs.

Starting with a Foreword from world-changing innovator and bestselling author Guy Kawasaki, The Open Innovation Revolution looks closely at:

  • Open innovation—the visionary model that more and more companies are adopting
  • Innovation leaders and intrapreneurs—and the essential elements that must be put in place for these people to thrive
  • The people-related roadblocks that can impede innovation and some ways these can be overcome
  • The personal leadership skills you will need to develop as an innovation leader or intrapreneur

Innovation thought leader Stefan Lindegaard helps you know if open innovation is right for your organization and then shows you how to prepare those within your organization to make the quantum leap to open innovation as the new normal.

They are the face of a company's open innovation effort, and will need to represent this function both internally and externally.

I've just had a chance to read a new book by Stefan Lindegaard, who is an active innovation consultant and blogger. If you follow innovation topics on the web, you may have seen his site, [...], or seen him on Twitter, where his handle is @lindegaard. At any rate Stefan is an active participant in the online innovation community, and is always worth listening to.

Stefan's area of focus is open innovation, and his new book, The Open Innovation Revolution, is a book meant to provide the ground work for any firm considering an open innovation approach. Stefan's approach is very pragmatic, and the reason I like it is that he takes a very top down, strategic approach to innovation. After introducing what open innovation is and why it matters, he quickly turns his attention to the "mandate" for open innovation. He discusses innovation strategy and strategic purposes, what we at OVO call "strategic intent". Innovation is often a "bolt-on" process that conflicts with strategy rather than a carefully integrated capability, so this focus on strategy rings very true.

He then turns his attention to people and culture, which are the right focus areas. To be successful at open innovation, we need to identify the best partners to work with and also change the thinking inside the firm. The predominant thinking in most firms is to protect intellectual property and to assume "we know best". In a firm focused on open innovation, the presumptive thinking is: we can identify the best ideas, ours or someone else's. It took P&G and Lafley to make this thinking acceptable in the Fortune 500.

A few weeks ago I received "The Open Innovation Revolution" by Stefan Lindegaard in the mail. "The Open Innovation Revolution" is an approachable 200 pages, and is an easy, and pleasant read.

Stefan Lindegaard is contributor to Blogging Innovation and is a speaker, network facilitator and strategic advisor who focuses on the topics of open innovation, intrapreneurship and how to identify and develop the people who drive innovation.

The book tries to tackle the hot topic of open Innovation. If you're not familiar with open innovation, the basic idea is that it is not all of the smart people in the world that could contribute to your organization's success, live within the organization's four walls. Open innovation is when an organization pursues innovation with the assistance of brains outside the organization - sometimes publicly, sometimes privately.

Most books on innovation focus on ideation, creativity, or the process for managing innovation, but open innovation requires a different mindset and a different set of skills, mindsets, and culture to execute successfully because the organization does not control all of the resources in this approach. "The Open Innovation Revolution" gives you a peek at what some of the leading organizations in the open innovation revolution are doing and some of the things that you need to think about and plan for.

This book is a managerial self-help book of how to implement the ideas is Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating And Profiting from Technology.

I have given this book only three stars because its value is limited to a specific audience: You are a manager in a large or medium-sized company without a recent MBA who have come across the idea of "open innovation" somewhere and find it interesting. You might have a dislike for theoretical management books with lots of figures and matrices. You might be happier with check-lists of what to do.

If you fit the description the book is a four and if you don't fit the description the book is a two

I've read Stefan Lindegaard's new book The Open Innovation Revolution and found it to be an easy read, written obviously by someone (Stefan) who is passionate about the topic. It is a great primer for companies, and especially mid-level managers new to the open innovation trend. Those who are looking for a deeper analysis of emerging tools (software, best practices) and approaches to overcoming some of the 'stickier' parts of OI (such as intellectual property rights) may be left a bit longing. But with that said, Stefan has focused (and I think intentionally and rightly) on the leadership and organizational aspects of OI. He has done an excellent job of creating a handbook for the enlightened middle manager of an established company hoping to begin or expand their open innovation efforts. I especially like his focus (Chapter 6) on the Networked Innovation Culture and the need to build a culture and mentality of networking as a core element of OI. I also liked his treatment of identifying and Defeating the Corporate Antibodies (Chapter 8), though in this case, wished for some more and deeper actionable advice.

It's surprising to see so few books following after Henry Chesbrough's seminal Open Innovation a few years back... a lot has transpired in this area, with Open Innovation moving from a leading edge approach to a much more mainstream activity. It's also crossing from R&D into marketing and other functions, as well as taking on a variety of new forms... from collaborative networks, crowdsourcing, consortia and many related forms of open innovation. Stefan's book does an excellent job of addressing the basics of open innovation and hopefully will find a broad business audience. It provides practical tools and shares experience from leaders in the market, and I hope it inspires more people to undertake open innovation initiatives. Much of his advice will help more of these initiatives succeed I'm sure.
