The book is pretty simple and easy to digest. Good for newbie. There're some tools, templates or graphs that are practical and can be used immediately.

Wow, when I got around to writing this review, I saw that there are already numerous Amazon Vine voices who had ordered this book and written their reviews. Why so many? Most likely because there is a lot of interest in "innovation", so that we can lead our team to build the next iPhone! But does this book really help you get there?

Pros:
1. The author does offer a website for you to go and fill out questionnaires to assess your status (HealthChecks). Registration is free. Assessment tool is easy to use, though I personally prefer number scores instead of color bar / slider.
2. Case stories - interesting reads!

Cons:
1. Online templates - these cost money!
2. Too obvious in some places - for example, one of the tips is "learn from mistakes". I thought that was taught when we were adolescents.

What is most lacking though in the book is real solutions that a manager can use. For example, pages 47-48 make reference to a business case. I happen to find that business case (as in return on investment) is extremely important before approving a project. The book does not do much beyond giving a short one paragraph description on this. What good is a whole book on innovation if a business case can not be built to see if the innovations are worth a company's investment?

In conclusion, while this book does a decent job calling attention to the subject of innovation, I find it lacking in providing real working solutions to the problem.

I received three Fast Track books all at once - "Managing People & Performance", "Project Management", and Innovation". My first impression was that they are all less imposing than I thought, they use what I consider lower quality paper (seems a bit yellowed/dark), and they all follow the same exact format and have some of the same filler at the beginning and end.

That last part wouldn't necessarily be bad, but I quickly realized that they actually have a lot of the same content in each of the three books. Some chapters are just about copied, with the formatting changed slightly and a few words here and there or a sentence removed or added at the end of a paragraph. So how legitimate is the credit given to the authors? They couldn't have all written the same thing. So either book is nice by itself, but obviously each successive book will be significantly less useful. I am really rather disturbed after the third book. Also, quite a few of the tables and figures are the same. Therefore, it is fitting that these first two paragraphs of my writing will appear in my review for all three books...

Innovation is the third of the books I read, and it's the one I like least. That may be in part because by now only 25% or so is new material (maybe less), but I also read it third because I suspected it would be the least interesting.

And I can't give this book a good review. It seems like at least a 50% copy of "Project Management". I don't know which came first, but "Innovation" seems to have the hardest time making a full book of itself.

That said, I wouldn't give it a two if it was the only one I had read. It's sort of getting punished for too much information repeated throughout the series.

It's not a complete waste: it might be worthwhile if you're looking for a business book on innovation specifically, but don't waste your time if you own another Fast Track book.

I should also mention that if you've been through business school, this is too low key for you (unless you've slept through all your classes). As an Engineer who doesn't really care that much, I can pick up a few tips on the fly.

I am not sure that Innovation: Fast Track to Success has all the answers to innovation, but it covers a key area that is too often missed: how a good idea turns into something that actually exists in the real world. So often, you read about brainstorming to come up with a great idea, or you hear about Steve Jobs' demand to make something more user friendly, but you don't see how that great idea actually winds up on store shelves or, more often, how it winds up strangled somewhere between legal, marketing and/or human resources.

If you are looking for a way to come up with great ideas, there's probably not much new here. But if you have great ideas that never seem to get off the ground, this will help you figure out whether your idea is on the path to adoption or the road to nowhere, and what to do about it.

The key to the book, mentioned in the blurb, is "planning, pipeline, process, platform, people, and performance" = 6 p's without which no idea comes to fruition. I have watched so many good ideas die, particularly in the pipeline - is there a vision to integrate this great idea into what we're doing now? - and platform - are we set up to act on this? - stages, that I'm convinced that a stupid idea, properly implemented, will get you further than a great idea expected to make its way from inception to implementation on its own merits alone. Don't let the next idea you or your company have wind up a failure before it even has a chance to be tried out. Have a look at the Innovation Fast Track book to make sure that it gets the introduction and implementation it deserves.
