It's a fine companion to Difference and Marketing: A Love Story: How to Matter to Your Customers.
My test for recommending a book is how often people come back to me with thanks for the find. With Bernadette's books, it happens a lot.
If you are of the opinion that there is enough of a market out there for your special idea as opposed to "I have to have an idea that everyone will love", then this is the book for you.
With real world examples, Bernadette tells how others have been able to take their small idea of solving a handful of customers problems has turned into much more. She then follows it up with actionable steps you can take to build your idea.
Then again it's a rare book where someone has taken the concepts of ideas, opportunities, insight, creative process, curiosity, empathy, imagination and design, woven in stories, case studies and guided exercises and produced such a clear and concise treaty on turning common insight into successful products, services or things.
So yes, while we are familiar with the concepts, I argue it's the story, structure and orderly content that prompts fresh learning. Although I will say, I've read thousands of books and I don't quite remember seeing anything like Bernadette's stimulating exercises. With simplicity she leads us through processes that promise to deliver insight.
She digs into curiosity and what drives us to notice problems and create solutions. It's amazing what happens when you pay attention to what most people overlook.
As the pace of innovation increases the economy is rewarding those individuals with a hunch to solve problems in new ways (or to solve the new problems in society). Are you preparing yourself?
Bernadette combines great stories and exercises to help you level up and get better at seeing opportunities.
