Value blueprints, leadership prism, first-mover matrix…etc. Your company and its products, innovations and decisions, are part of an ecosystem.

For your business to be successful, you need to have the type of vision that allows you to see beyond your own building. The Wide Lens explains the risks of having a tunnel-vision approach to innovation. It challenges executives to rethink their innovation assumptions and channel the excitement over a new product concept into critical evaluation of every potential partner and stakeholder.

In one of the more thought-provoking cautionary tales offered by Adner, he discusses the plodding progression toward digital cinema. As CDs fell to mp3s and DVDs migrated to streaming video, the natural thought would be that a move to digital cinema would be as easy as flicking a switch.

Unfortunately, the stakeholders that had the most to gain movie studios initially neglected to consider the needs of the most critical component: movie theaters. In short, The Wide Lens is one of the more enlightening innovation books to hit shelves in recent times. Like a large stone hitting the surface of a pond, its ripples will continue to be felt.

In The Age of the Platform, I write extensively about ecosystems, managing uncertainty, and embracing intelligent risk. His use of case studies is particularly instructive and includes eReaders, insulin inhalers, and 3G cell phones. So, the ecosystem guarantees success, right? He repeatedly discusses maximizing probabilities and offers no "one size fits all" elixir to this new world of ecosystems.

January 1, Andrea James Clear writing with well-told and interesting stories on blind spots and the importance of understanding business eco-systems. I would have liked more depth but it worked for me as an audiobook for commuting.

The book provided good reminders of the importance of taking greater perspectives and considering a project from wider angles. It prompts us to think about how the different and non-obvious stakeholders may influence and affect the success of your plan. What is it like to be a first mover in Clear writing with well-told and interesting stories on blind spots and the importance of understanding business eco-systems.

What is it like to be a first mover in a market that relies on other services or regulation etc. Rather it is. I recommend this book to anyone who is in a traditional, or for some other reason, slow-moving business, a A quick, interesting read recommended to me by our CFO.

I recommend this book to anyone who is in a traditional, or for some other reason, slow-moving business, as a way to shake up how they think about innovation. January 1, Nathanael Coyne The premise of this book seems so obvious in hindsight, how innovations fail by not looking at co-adoption and co-innovation.

Podcasts Book review: The Wide Lens, by Ron Adner The devil may be in the detail, but successful innovators keep their eye on the big picture, too. Charlie Dawson buys in. I have never reviewed a book before and one of my worries was about who I was doing this for. This kind of muddled web is exactly what the book is about - an innovation ecosystem, to give it its more professional name. It sets out to make a single point.
