Beside IME‘s Value Chain of Distribution of Digital Information that created the foundations of all this reflection, a few articles, books, lectures, keynotes… inspired me for this book, these concepts and the whole innovation methodology that is taking shape. Here they are (list will grow with the time):

  • Squiggle of the Design Process by Damien Newman that tells very simply how life, nature and soon business works: trial and errors, experimentations and ultimately emergence of an obvious solution 
  • How to rebuild The Media Industries by Forrester: surprisingly, i meet Forrester there with the 3 steps. Theirs are called: Digitization, Meltdown and Rebuild
  • Business Model Generation by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur, with Creative Direction from Alan Smith, The Movement: a worlwide reference about design thinking and business models. Their Canvas is a great evolution of Porter’s Value Chain in a customer-centric world
  • Brand Driven Innovation (reading in progress) by Erik Roscam Abbing tackles very precisely Innovation and Brand relationship, based on design thinking methods. Great cases enrich the book
  • ReWork by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson (37signals): very interesting book to challenge your (bad) habits and pre-defined thoughts. A Brain Shaker!
  • The Human-Centered Design of Digital Interaction by Namahn that explores in details the 3rd step of the methodology under definition. Namahn is also my host while writing in Brussels and I hope a partner for the future, when the methodology will be rolled out
  • Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky: an interesting book teaching creatives to… well… make things happen. Not very useful to this writing process but a few ideas are interesting
  • 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School by Matthew Frederick: Interesting insights from the industry that embraced the best Design Thinking. Good to challenge your views, whatever you do…
  • La Dramaturgie by Yves Lavandier: a book recommended by a professor when i studied cinema 15 years ago. I never started it, but now I’m aware story-telling is key, i’ll give a shot!
  • Basics Product Design: idea searching by David Bramston is a great collection of all tools, methods and pathways to generate ideas. This is very useful for the 3rd step of the methodology under definition that enable Tele Media companies to create new ideas based on a framework defined by DICoDE (Strategies) and DIRT (Business Models)
  • Gerd Leonhard: self-called Media Futurist who has a very unique way to present his ideas. Very chaotic and inspiring data coming from him, even if i personally think he repeats himself a lot. Which is probably a must when you present your thoughts to different people every day…
  • Managing as Designing by Richard Boland Jr. and Fred Collopy. I’ve only seen quotes, samples and concepts from this book yet. On my to read list…
  • A Whole New Mind by Daniel H. Pink. I’ve only seen quotes, a great talk at PopTech 2007, samples and concepts from this book yet. On my to read list…
  • The Opposable Mind: How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative Thinking by Roger Martin. I’ve only seen quotes, samples and concepts from this book yet. On my to read list…
