    This book suggests that innovation in a modern business context has less to do with developing new products and services, and more to do with developing new business models. Author Mark Johnson discusses what a business model is and why organizations so often resist new ideas, even ones that have the potential to be highly profitable. He offers some tools for understanding what your organization's current business model is and discusses ways to identify and capitalize on new opportunities that i This book suggests that innovation in a modern business context has less to do with developing new products and services, and more to do with developing new business models. Author Mark Johnson discusses what a business model is and why organizations so often resist new ideas, even ones that have the potential to be highly profitable. He offers some tools for understanding what your organization's current business model is and discusses ways to identify and capitalize on new opportunities that involve business models outside of your company's core competencies or even outside of your organization's comfort zone. I think this book deals with a very important topic and does a great job of describing it. The "four-box" approach to understanding a business model - customer value proposition, key resources, key processes and profit formula - is very helpful and could be useful even for organizations not looking to innovate. And Johnson's delineation of approaches to taking on new business models and the real-world examples he uses are great. Unfortunately the style of the book is quite dry. Despite quality content and very good stories from industry, the writing makes this feel like a particularly boring lecture. The graphs and charts are bland and uninviting. Everything is functional, not fun. Which is too bad for a book on innovation. It's almost as if Johnson was a top secret spy who said, "I have this great idea. Now how can I present it in a public forum so that only a few people understand the message?" He then proceeded to make the material as boring as possible, knowing that the average reader would zone out eventually. I would give the ideas in this book 4 out of 5 stars, but the quality of the writing 2 out of 5 stars. For those who are looking to move their companies or organizations into new markets or who want to chase new opportunities, there is a lot of good material to consider here. You'll just have to slog through some dull writing to dig out those pearls of wisdom.

    A good book with many examples of successful and unsuccessful businesses. It had been sitting on my shelf for a number of years, so unfortunately already a bit out of date.

    It's an interesting book to get different models of innovative business models and rich of good examples, which is the best part to me. Worth a read, but didn't change my life.

    Great exploration of innovation and how business models influence growth and renewal. The book presents many examples of how to approach new ideas and solutions by focusing on a company's white space or possible "job to do" propositions; giving the customer either a new product or a better way to address an existing need or service. Explains business models in a very concise and understandable manner. Highly recommended. Great exploration of innovation and how business models influence growth and renewal.

    READ MAY 2010 Good treatment about innovative business models. Best quote, to develop customer value, "stop trying to figure out what kinds of products people are trying to buy and instead work out what they are trying to get done in their lives in a given circumstance" (p. 26).

    Excellent read for anybody interested in business model innovation or learning how to pivot your company into a new space. A bit dry and can get repetitive. Read the first chapter for the overview, and skim the book for examples that seem compelling or relevant.
