    One thought on “The Wide Lens”

    1. Easy to read and well organized book -- with one or two well-chosen cases for each chapter/concept. Ron found a compelling way of writing about strategy and bringing in fresh insights. Will probably offer this book as an essay option for my strat students. As to the content and Ron's arguments, I like the first chapters, especially the identification (and naming) of execution, co-innovation, and adoption chain risk (first three chapters), even if if does lead to some very artificial "gotcha" exa [...]

    2. I loved it. The Wide Lens as a term has a lot of meaning for me now. I remember many of the illustrations/case studies and have been telling them to anyone who'll listen. I feel equipped to know where to start with really progressing some of my ideas. The systems are powerfully simple and yet seem simply powerful.As someone who has lots of ideas and can't pick between them, I think this is going to be a massive help for me to:- Assist in narrowing my focus onto the "correct" segment of an idea w [...]

    3. This book is absolutely a business book. There are some morals that can be extrapolated for your normal life, but that being said, it's true helpfulness comes from redefining the way you look at business relstionships. This book is for people who have great ideas, but can lose themselves in the details. Specific examples and analysis help you apply these ideas to daily innovations you read or hear about, and then into your own business life. Nothing about it is new, but that doesn't mean it's ob [...]

    4. This particular book is recommended by Bill Gates, together with several others in his reading list. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have bought it. And it turns out, this particular book isn’t “just another book on innovation”. The contents are far more useful than some tips to encourage innovativeness in ones’ organization like other book on innovation. Personally, the Wide Lens framework is useful even for projects internal to an organization that involves several other stakehold [...]

    5. The Wide Lens: A New Strategy for Innovation by Ron Adner was chosen by Soundview Executive Book Summaries as one of the Top 30 Business Books of 2012E SOUNDVIEW REVIEW:Your business is not an island whose products cross an empty sea until reaching the mainland of mass consumption. 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. Ron Adner, p [...]

    6. While reading The Wide Lens, I was struck repeatedly by two books: The Age of the Platform: How , Apple, Facebook, and Google Have Redefined Business (of which I am the author) and The Halo Effect. In The Age of the Platform, I write extensively about ecosystems, managing uncertainty, and embracing intelligent risk. Had Adner's book been published a year ago, I certainly would have quoted it. His use of case studies is particularly instructive and includes eReaders, insulin inhalers, and 3G cell [...]

    7. 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 [...]

    8. Not that I've read widely in this field, but this is the best book on innovation that I've come across. The best take-away nugget: when working in a collaborative fashion, keep in mind that success isn't an average of every party's chance that they'll complete their piece on time and on budget. It's a multiplication problem, not a division/average problem.Example: if a group of four agencies try some new project and each estimates that their chance of success is somewhere around 80%, the project [...]

    9. The Wide Lens was an excellent book on innovation in an environment where multi-company collaboration is required to make a project successful. In today's world, that involves most large market products. I would rate this book on innovation right up there with The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen. The concept of co-innovation and co-adoption risk was new to me and very helpful in explaining why innovations, even though superior to their competitors, may fail if they don't take into con [...]

    10. A quick, interesting read recommended to me by our CFO. I'm torn on the four stars designation because it's not as good as other four stars I've given during my tenure with GR. That said, on it's own merits and not in comparison with other books, it gets 4 stars: it taught me new strategies, described interesting facts/stories, and led me to think about things I hadn't thought about before. I recommend this book to anyone who is in a traditional, or for some other reason, slow-moving business, a [...]

    11. The premise of this book seems so obvious in hindsight, how innovations fail by not looking at co-adoption and co-innovation. But it was an angle I hadn't thought of before and opened my eyes to the "wide lens" view of innovation in the ecosystem. Good case studies, easy to read, with a solid framework for adopting the wide lens view and helpful strategies on how not to fall into the same trap as Nokia, Philips, Michelin and more.

    12. Excellent look into innovation ecosystems and how to asses what it takes for your technology to reach the market

    13. Very good presentation of how to think about the ecosystem outside of an individual company that surrounds making an innovation successful. Clear writing and good illustrative stories.

    14. The Wide Lens opens readers’ eyes to the bigger picture of innovation. Mr. Adner introduces the term 'innovation ecosystem', which refers to the wider effects of innovative efforts.

    15. Interesting focus on how to shephard an inovation to implementation when dependent on other entities for cooperation in the process. Very good points for project managers to consider.

    16. Well-written, engaging, and interesting. Was on my curriculum for a third-year university course on Business Strategy. Best part of the course.

    17. New frameworks for establishing innovation platforms. Story-based so very readable. Grounded in valid research findings.

    18. One of the best books on Innovation that I have read.It really emphasizes the importance of Innovation ecosystem

    19. The ecosystem in which a product launches is important. Point taken. But outside of that concept, this book didn't have too much more to offer. Could have been better as a well written article.
