The tools and techniques in this book are organized around a four-step innovation methodology--define, discover, develop, and demonstrate--that takes readers through problem identification, then flows into idea generation, idea selection, and, finally, idea implementation.

—Bernd Weber, PhD, Worldwide Lean Six Sigma Deployment Leader, Qimonda AG
"A definitive and one-of-a-kind work, this book packs more innovation know-how under its hood than any other resource available. Silverstein and his coauthors have successfully connected the scattered dots of organic growth into an unbelievably cohesive, elegant, and actionable framework."

—Robert Crescenzi, Vice President of Business Excellence, NewPage Corporation
Growing a company isn't easy—and it's even more difficult to do on a sustainable basis if you don't have a system for innovation built into your organization.

Success with organic growth, the authors reveal, takes a lot more than ideas, or even great ideas. It takes a base of managers and employees who can skillfully apply all the necessary techniques and tools of innovation—not just the creative ones.
This book offers a practical framework for making innovation predictable and sustainable in any organization, with techniques—from basics like "imaginary brainstorming" to "axiomatic design." The tools and techniques are organized around a four-step innovation methodology—define, discover, develop, and demonstrate—that takes readers through problem identification, then flows into idea generation, idea selection, and, finally,idea implementation.
Written in an easy-to-use reference format that helps readers understand why, when, and how to apply each tool, The Innovator's Toolkit provides the means to move an innovation mountain in your organization, making rebirth and invention an everyday event—not an unexpected surprise.
