Though not included in his main 7 principles, I appreciated the bonus (8th) principle most. He adds into the conclusion the last principle: Don't let the bozo's get you down. In other words, if you are going to innovate, it also means that you will think differently. The world will not like this, the world will not understand this, and everyone will dislike your idea/s. This is the challenge the Steve Jobs took and takes on continually. He faces this, drives his innovation anyway, AND changes the world for the better.
Gallo includes iLessons at the end of each chapter, to briefly summarize and challenge the reader to do something about what they learned. These are a great idea for quick reminders on each chapter, and materializing the information into possible next-step plans - in your own life, business or career.
Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs is an excellent book. It is an enjoyable read about the principles driving the most impactfully creative person of our times. Best of all these are principles we can all learn and apply.
My point is, the value of Gallo's book is not based on any the head-snapping revelations it provides; rather, on the analysis he offers of a truly unique person who co-founded a truly unique organization, and who then established and nourished a culture within which innovative thinking continues to produce, in Jobs's familiar words, "insanely great ideas." Ironically, it is possible but unlikely that Jobs and Apple would have succeeded to the extent they later did were it not for the "insanely great ideas" that he and Steve Wozniak encountered during a visit to Xerox PARC in 1979. Long ago, Thomas Edison observed, "Vision without execution is hallucination." An "insanely great" idea will not achieve "insanely great" breakthrough success without "insanely great" execution.
I also presume to assert that, with all due respect to Jobs, credit for the extraordinary success that Apple has achieved thus far must be shared by hundreds (if not thousands) of people who have been or are now centrally involved at every management level and in all areas of operations.Read more ›
