Every year I look forward to attending Saul Kaplan's incredible Business Innovation Factory conference to learn more about creativity, innovation and the wonderful art of story-telling. Now Saul is bringing together those stories plus all his real-world experience as a full-fledged entrepreneur, government policy-maker and "innovation junkie" to offer us the gift of a remarkable book. Saul is dead-on in saying that incremental innovation won't hack it in the 21st century. Every CEO needs a business model innovation factory.
In established corporations, disruption has been like the weather--incessantly discussed, never deployed. Now Saul Kaplan--plainspoken, practical, and pugnacious--documents the principles, the tools, and the stories that prove business model change can be part of an organization's repertoire. This is the handbook for those who will no longer settle for the incremental.
New products and shining new technologies alone don't give you a competitive edge anymore. Tweaks to your current business model won't keep you ahead for long. Saul's book shows you how to address this by building business model innovation factories. It's the next step for any leader who wants to get to or stay at the head of the league table.
Forget episodic or incremental innovation. The Business Model Innovation Factory by Saul Kaplan shows how your future rests on business model innovation. Learn the fifteen principles that are critical to success.
