Businessweek’s Best Books On Innovation & Design

Mass collaboration, social networking, co-creation, consumer experience are amongst the buzz words in 2006. In this fast changing landscape Businessweek comes out with a set of books focussing on innovation and design published in the year. Am amazed at the variety and the tapestry that all these try to weave (though I have not read all the books listed therein - but surely they go into the to-buy list)
Reaping the Rewards of Innovation is an important aspect to furthering innovation. The book “Mavericks At Work” - offers a wide-ranging case studies of managers and companies willing to think and do different. I like the description about the book - In a business world plagued by risk aversion, conformity, and copycat benchmarking. Edward Tufte’s information design, wherein he digs more deeply into art and science to reveal very old connections between truth and beauty—all the way from Galileo to Google. Wikinomics talks about MySpace, Second Life, and YouTube—as well as mature icons such as IBM, BMW, and Best Buy, and international examples that show how, for instance, peer production has made China the world's leader in motorcycle production. The list is indeed impressive:

- Designing Interactions by Bill Moggride
- Worldchanging by Alex Steffen
- Payback by James Andrew and Harold Sirkin
- ZAG by Marty Neumeier
- Beautiful Evidence by Edward Tutfe
- Open Business Models by Henry Chesbrough
- Wikinomics by Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams
- Mavericks at Work by Bill Taylor and Polly LaBarre
- Juicing the Orange by Pat Fallon and Fred Senn
- Spectale by David Rockwell and Bruce Mau
