The Global Brain - Satish Nambisan (XL '89)

Dear XL folks:

My new book on network-centric innovation has just come out:

The Global Brain: Your Roadmap for Innovating Faster & Smarter in a Networked World (Wharton School Publishing, 2007) (coauthor Mohan Sawhney, Kellogg School)

Sample book endorsements:

"This is a very important book on a very important topic by two of the world's foremost authorities in innovation. It bears the hallmark of great business writing. The authors do not sell a one-size fits-all prescription for every company's innovation problems. Rather, they offer different roadmaps that can be tailored to each company's situation. This is what makes their work so broadly useful." - Clayton M. Christensen, Robert & Jane Cizik Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

“Applied Innovation is what creates value in organizations; it’s just very hard to do it. Nambisan and Sawhney have written a book that constructs a truly effective bridge between network driven innovation and its application. A refreshing look at Innovation and its practice. Useful for every business leader who is perplexed at the thought of actually ‘getting Innovation done.’” - Azim Premji, Chairman and CEO, WIPRO Technologies

Best regards,
Satish (XL, ’89)
