The book breaks down the two major components of powerful opportunities and lays down the skills and techniques to succeed in them. The first component is to find the Inspiration, an Innovation Objective that will move the innovator throughout the process. Here, Connect techniques are essential, wherein the innovator finds new insights on markets and people. Once the Innovation Objectives are identified, the process moves to the second component of an opportunity – the big idea that addresses the objective. To this end, the book presents the Disconnect techniques of Ideation, detailing the various tools and ways one can generate creative ideas.
