I completely re-evaluated the role of innovation in business growth: before reading this book I have to admit I thought it only entailed product new features and technologies enhancements, while now I see it has everything to do with meeting customer needs and uncovering a business USP, which automatically translates in sales! Could not recommend it more!

Unlike most business innovation books I read over the last years (and even decades) when reading How to create innovation you immediately understand the authors have been there, innovating and transforming some of the world's most amazing brands. Great work!

Not only this book offers the most comprehensive innovation and business change overview but it really helps you take the next step, driving you step by step from theory to practice (also with super useful background notes and driving questions)

I really enjoyed the whole book, but mostly the culture chapter, mainly because I always failed to acknowledge its major role in favouring or inhibiting business growth. Loved the graphics that helped connect all the dots in a visually appealing (and way easier) way.

We’been willing to innovate our business for some years now, but then we always got stuck before we even started, because basically we had no idea where to start…This book helped us do just that: find the right starting point with guiding questions and an incredibly comprehensive innovation overview.

Why we use it

We use Galbraith’s Five Stars Model for Organizational Design because it provides a comprehensive framework for designing organizations that are aligned and integrated

in the following ways: 1. It aligns the organization’s strategy with its structure, systems, values and style.
2. It ensures that all components of the organization are integrated and support each other.
3. It helps organizations to identify areas for improvement and to design changes that will increase their effectiveness.
4. It can be applied to organizations of different sizes and industries.
5. It provides a roadmap for change and implementation.

By using Galbraith’s Five Stars Model, organizations can design a structure and culture that supports their goals and objectives, leading to increased effectiveness and improved performance.

How It Works

The model arranges five business elements into a star-shaped diagram that depicts how each of these pieces of your business are reliant upon the others.

Completing a Galbraith’s Five Stars Model for Organizational Design template typically involves the following steps:
1. Define the organization’s goals, objectives, and strategy.
2. Design the organization’s structure, including roles, responsibilities, and relationships, to support the strategy.
3. Establish processes, technology, and information systems that support the structure.
4. Build a culture that supports the organization’s strategy, structure, and systems by establishing shared values, beliefs, and behaviors that align with the organization’s goals.
5. Develop a leadership and management style that supports the organization’s strategy, structure, systems, and shared values. This includes developing leadership and management practices that align with the organization’s goals and culture.
Each of these five components can be mapped out in a template, with specific information about the organization’s goals, objectives, strategy, structure, systems, values, and style. The template can be used as a tool for analysis and design, and can be modified over time as the organization evolves.

The Galbraith’s Five Stars Model is not a one-time, static event, but an ongoing process of continuous improvement. Regular review and revision of the template helps organizations maintain alignment and integration among the five components.
