For Drucker, innovation and entrepreneurship are not a "flash of genius," but purposive tasks that can be organized as systematic, rational work fostered by management. Entrepreneurship is treated not as personality or intuition but behavior, concept, and theory

For Drucker, innovation and entrepreneurship are not a "flash of genius," but purposive tasks that can be organized as systematic, rational work fostered by management. Entrepreneurship is treated not as personality or intuition but behavior, concept, and theory. Entrepreneurship is not high-risk; rather, few so-called entrepreneurs have the method for what they do. The practice of innovation, the practice of entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurial strategies compose innovation and entrepreneurship.

This is the first book to present innovation and entrepreneurship as a purposeful and systematic discipline that explains and analyzes the challenges and opportunities of America's new entrepreneurial economy. Superbly practical, Innovation and Entrepreneurship explains what established businesses, public service institutions, and new ventures need to know and do to succeed in today's economy.

A must read for entrepreneurs | Innovation and Entrepreneurship by Peter F. Drucker

If you are looking to get knowledge on the basic principles of entrepreneurship, this book is where you should start. Peter Drucker explains in a very detailed way these 19 principals which cover everything that you should know about the business world. Throughout the entire book he makes use of many examples of successful companies to show their process to success, he also shows examples of companies that have failed and why this happened.
The book starts by letting you know the the deep relationship between innovation and entrepreneurship, it even starts by using examples which make the entire book much easier to understand. The author explains how an entrepreneur isn't a person starting a small food business but, the person that starts a new food business that has a new process which satisfies the people's demand. The author uses as example one of the most famous restaurants today, Mcdonald's, which changed an entire food industry with an innovating new process called “fast food”. We see many examples like this one throughout the book to explain the different topics, it explains how a business has to evolve alongside with the generations in order to survive. In general it is a very good book for young dreamers that like to think outside the box and want to become successful in life.
This is the first entrepreneur book a read and i am really satisfied. One of the best lessons i learned form one of the chapters of the book is the change in perception, basically that we should always see a cup half full and never half empty. I highly recommend this book a a start line because of its combination of simplicity, detail and real life examples.

I bought this book after a CEO friend from YPO & OPM recommended this book to me. I find this book great for companies needing innovation. Many times business revenues and profit stay flat because they kept doing the same thing year in year out without any innovation.

The book focuses on 3 main things:
I. Practice of innovation
II. Practice of entrepreneurship
III. Entrepreneurial strategies

What i like about this book is talking about creative imitation and:

The do's of innovation:
1. Purposeful, systematic innovation with analysis of opportunities
2. Conceptual & perceptual innovation
3. Simple innovation
4. Effective innovation start small
5. Successful innovation aims at leadership

The don'ts of innovation:
1. Not to be too clever
2. Don't diversify, don't splinter, don't try to do too many things at once
3. Don't try to innovate for the future

The 3 Conditions of innovation:
1. Innovation is work, it requires knowledge
2. To succeed, innovators need to built on their strengths
3. Innovation has to be close to the market & focus on the market, indeed market-driven

Buy this book if you wish to have innovation in your company.

The other 5 star reviews on here said it well already, but I just wanted to add my appreciation for this book to the pile. This is a REALLY good book. I couldn't even put it down. I have loads of highlighting, bookmarks, and notes already in it (Kindle ed.) and I am definitely going to be re-reading this book more than a few times.
Some of what he said reminded me of The E-Myth Revisited, but this book took the topic more seriously. Drucker wasn't messing around here or trying to be philosophical about things. This book was originally published in 1985 when I was only 1 year old, and it seems to me that the things he talked about then are still highly relevant today. Also, since the book was written, the types of things he predicted would happen largely DID happen (and are, still,) which only makes Drucker's ideas even more credible.
Great great book. A must-read for the budding entrepreneur.

A very practical book! I came across this in my first professional job after college in the Wall Street area in 1974. The officers in the Consulting Company, where I worked, used this pretty much as their Bible on running their business. We used to meet regularly as a staff and discuss Peter Drucker's ideas. Management wanted us to be versed in this stuff.

I personally latched onto his thinking. It made sense! It worked! I carried it with me to other companies on Wall Street as I grew into management positions, and later in the Management area of several computer manufacturer's Software Engineering Research and Design departments.

Drucker was famous for the whole concept of Management by Objectives (MBO). Besides being the "latest craze," it met with great success. It was a logical tool for businesses to plan their growth, future, operations and the management of their day-to-day business, departments, etc. This grew into what we know today as Strategic Planning.

This book still has tremendous value today. I have replaced my original hardcover copy twice. It has stood the test of time. I find that the most valuable chapter in this good-sized book has been Chapter 36, "The Spirit of Performance." That was a chapter which emphasized:
------------------------------------------------------------
To Make Common Men & Women Do Uncommon Things--The Test Is Performance, Not Good Feelings--Focus on Strength--Practices, Not Preachments--The Danger of Safe Mediocrity--What "Performance" Means--What to Do with the Non-performer--"Conscience" Decisions--Focus on Opportunity--"People" Decisions--The Control of an Organization--Integrity, the Touchstone.
-----------------------------------------------------

It basically encompassed the most essential things a manager had to know about managing, motivating and dealing with people. It spoke of things like responsibilities, accountability and fairness. It was extremely uplifting. For instance, it taught:
-----------------------------------------------------
The spirit of performance requires that there be full scope for individual excellence. The focus must be on the strengths of a man--on what he(/she) can do rather than on what he(/she) cannot do.

"Morale" in an organization does not mean that "people get along together"; the test is performance, not conformance. Human relations that are not grounded in the satisfaction of good performance in work are actually poor human relations and result in a mean spirit. And there is no greater indictment of an organization than that the strength and ability of the outstanding man(/woman) become a threat to the group and his performance a source of difficulty, frustration, and discouragement for the others.

Spirit of performance in a human organization means that its energy output is larger than the sum of the efforts put in. It means the creation of energy. This cannot be accomplished by mechanical means. A mechanical contrivance can, at its theoretical best, conserve energy, but it cannot create it. To get out more than is being put in is possible only in the moral sphere.

Morality does not mean preachments. Morality, to have any meaning at all, must be a principle of action. It must not be exhortation, sermon, or good intentions. It must be practices.
-----------------------------------------------------

Thirty-six years later, I still go back to this. I have had reason twice to go back to this just in the last few months. This and an essay, "A Man Subject to Authority." from a spiritual book, "Unprofitable Servants: Conferences on Humility," by Nivard Kinsella, O.S.C.O., were resources I kept close at hand and referred to frequently. Coming from two completely different sources they seemed to compliment each other very well. The essay began it with, "Humility is the most necessary of all the virtues. It is so at all times and for everyone. If it can be said to be more necessary for one than for another, that one is the person who is in authority." In a sense, it could have fit right into Drucker's chapter on "The Spirit of Performance." I think both were bordering on sort of a universal truth concerning dealings with people.

I think, even after retirement, I'll have a copy of both of these books, which open first to the above sections, in close proximity--never too far away! In fact, only a few months ago, I bought an audio copy of the book on CDs. I hope to listen to the whole thing sometime in the near future. Why? It always seems to spur me on. In writing this, I once again took a look at the end of Ch. 36. It does me good. We need more of this in our country. I'll share it with you here:
-----------------------------------------------------
This chapter has talked of "practices." It has not talked of "leadership." This was intentional. There is no substitute for leadership. But management cannot create leaders. It can only create the conditions under which potential leadership qualities become effective; or it can stifle potential leadership. The supply of leadership is much too uncertain to be depended upon for the creation of the spirit the enterprise needs to be productive and to hold together.

But practices, though seemingly humdrum, can always be practiced whatever a man's aptitudes, personality, or attitudes. They require no genius--only application. They are things to do rather than to talk about.

And the right practices should go a long way toward bringing out, recognizing, and using whatever potential for leadership there is in the management group. They should also lay the foundation for the right kind of leadership. For leadership is not magnetic personality--that can just as well be demagoguery. It is not "making friends and influencing people" that is flattery. Leadership is the lifting of a man's vision to higher sights, the raising of a man's performance to a higher standard, the building of a man's personality beyond its normal limitations. Nothing better prepares the ground for such leadership than a spirit of management that confirms in the day-to-day practices of the organization strict principles of conduct and responsibility, high standards of performance, and respect for the individual and his work.
-----------------------------------------------------

That's what makes this book great!
